I don't have the User Manual with me at the moment, so I'm not sure exactly what page 135 talks about, but your best bet is to do a full factory reset of the rig (hold down the power button for a couple of seconds) and once the reset sequence is complete, you should be prompted for the new call sign, etc. for the rig.
By resetting the rig, you'll also eliminate all the old profiles, etc. that the previous owner created/set, so you can set the rig up the way YOU want. :-)

Click on settings on the top of the screen. you will see Startup/radio /gps/transmit/cw/ETC ETC

with the radios information block

go down to the connect button right above the CONNECT button  where is says RADIO Identification, box  you can FILL in NICKNAME, and CALLSIGN just delete like a word document and fill in whatever you want..if you have any issues. let me know kk4x@arrl.net
