    I just did the update to Gingerbread on my Evo today, and I guess doing that somehow logged me out of the Amazon Appstore.

    I logged in, but I used the wrong Amazon account, and it is not recognizing any of the apps I purchased. When I try to open any of them it says "You do not own this app". OK, annoying but no biggie... except there does not seem to be anywhere I can log out again so I can log in using the correct account info.

    Anyone know how I can log out??

    Who? Stun?
    I went to the app and I did:
    Open Amazon AppStore -> Pressed Menu -> Went to "More" -> Went to "Settings" -> In "Settings" there is an option that allows you to deregister "which apparently isn't a real word. o_O" your device.

    It tells me I'm logged in as "My Name" and it gives me a link to deregister my device. I guess this is what you're looking for. I haven't done this before, so hopefully this helps. So I guess deregister, than register again.

    I tried this and it took me to the amazon site, where of course I then had to sign in on the site then find the section to deregister the phone.

    It was a huge pain, but it did work. Thanks!

    This is the only way per support that you can log out. There is no log out option in the software.

    I don't think any of the Amazon apps will work if you're signed out, do they? I know they don't work if the App store is uninstalled.

    You have to be logged in. After I did a wipe and a restore with TB, The Appstore was installed, but not logged in and I couldn't use my Amazon apps.
