Login to the app store with YOUR ID. You can't use the app store without an Apple ID. If there are apps on the phone that were purchased with the original owners ID, you do NOT own them. The owner had no legal right to give them to you and they are permanently tied to the ID that was used to purchase them.
...i was also allowed to purchase an apple network id for this phone...
I have absolutely NO IDEA what you mean by that. You can not "purchase an apple network id".
