Disassociate current Blackberry ID with device

When I set up my daughter's 8520 (OS 5.0), I originally set it up with my own Blackberry ID to control which apps she downloads. I used the same ID that I have on my Bold.  I'd like to change it so that she has her own unique ID and password linked to her phone. 

I tried changing it on her phone but it just keeps prompting me with my own ID.  I can't find a way to change it to something else.

The user documentation seems to indicate that in order to change the BB ID on a phone you have to do a memory wipe. Isn't that always the way?

I'm wondering if there is a more direct solution.
