[ Edited ]

Alright, so i set up my internet on my PSP, works fine, but i can't connect to my PSN account? I even tried making another one but still cant. It says "You cannot sign in using another user's sign-in ID (e-mail address)." I got this PSP from a friend who already had a PSN.

Delete friend's account first. Account management - press triangle button - Delete account.

You can't delete a PSN account, and there are no user profiles on a PSP; or more correctly, there is only one, so you can't delete that either.  You have to use the Restore Default Settings command under System Settings.  Then you can go to the Playstation Network category and use the Sign-Up for Playstation Network command to switch the PSP to your PSN account.

Yes, I guess restoring settings will do too, but what does "Account management - triangle - Delete account" option do then? And why did Royston99 suggest the same thing and looks like it worked?

You really don't know what you're talking about.

 

The "Delete account" on the PSP, simply deletes the account off the PSP system (not delete the actual account entirely).

 

The whole point is so that you DON'T have to restore default settings to put on a different PSN account. I've done it multiple times to switch between my brother's and my own account.
