I have two accounts, one with billing info, the other without. I want to delete the account Iam using now and use the other instead. How the heck do I do that ?!?!?!!?

I think you have to restore the Vita to original settings.  Some games you have will also need to be reset (by allowing them to install, then deleting the live area bubble they put on your screen) before you can earn trophies on the new account.

unfortunatly one 1 account per memory card...  so anything you buy with the account with billing info will not be available for you to use as the content will only work when your using the account that purchased it...  and you will also need to perform a factory reset on the vita in order to change the account it is tied to..

Turn off the PSV, then hold the power button for 5 seconds and it will bring up the hidden menu. You will have to restore the PSV to factory, but be warned that if any games are tied to  the current account then you might not be able to use them on the other. Backup with content manager first.

Please do not send me a friend's request without telling me who you are and where I know you from. Thank you.

its not might you will...

changing the account of which the vita is tied to will make any content on the memory card unusable...   as the memory card can only be tied to one account...  and to use the content you purchased on psn you must be using the account that was used to purchase the content.

also the content manager will not allow you to copy over content to a psvita if the vita isnt tied to the account of which purchased the content
