How to change Apple Id for the cloud

Currently my Apple ID is an email address which I have been using for decades.  In the near future the email server will be decommissioned and I will no longer be able to use it.  In preparation of the change over I want to change my current email address to an icloud email address (@icloud.com).  I have gone into the site to Manage Apple ID to change the email address but it won't let me as I get an error message that Apple ID must not use a domain owned by Apple.  How can I change my Apple ID and Primary eMail Address to an @cloud.com account without losing all the info already on my current icloud?

First save any photo stream photos that you want to keep on your device by opening the photo stream album, tapping Edit, tap the photos, tap Share, tap Save to Camera Roll.  If you are syncing Notes with iCloud, email them to yourself as you will have to recreate these after changing accounts.  Finally, if you are syncing any iWork documents with iCloud go to the settings for these apps and turn iCloud sycing to Off.
Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, choose Keep on My iPad when prompted.  (This will only delete the account from your device, not from iCloud.  If your daughter is keeping the existing account her devices will not be effected by this.)  Then sign back in with your new ID to create a new iCloud account, turn on your iCloud data syncing, choose Merge when prompted to upload the data to the new account.  Then recreate any Notes from the emails sent earlier and turn on iCloud syncing with iWork again, if appropriate.
existing iCloud old email address with the old account.  If you still want to access it on your iPad, you'll have to go to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Add Account>iCloud and sign in with the old account ID.  This email will be fetch only, not push.
Once your iPad has migrated to the new account, if you also want to move your Mac to this account go to System Preferences>iCloud, sign out, then sign in with the new ID.

    how to change apple id for icloud?

    From the knowledgeable Roger Wilmut:
    You can't change the primary email address, the one you created when you opened an iCloud account (or if you migrated from MobileMe the address you log in with) other than by opening a completely new account.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5621
    However you can create three 'email aliases' - these are extra addresses, not accounts, which deliver into the same inbox as the main address.
    http://help.apple.com/icloud/#mm6b1a490a
    It's actually quite a good idea to give out an alias address rather than the main one, since these can be easily changed should you get spammed.

  • How to change apple id for app updates

    The user id that displays on my ipod is correct on the settings menu but when I try to update my apps, the apple id that displays (and wants a password) is one that I no longer use.  How can I change the apple id for this one function to my current correct one?  I've tried poking around all the settings and can't find where to change it.  Once it is changed, I can then use my regular password.   Thanks!

    Hi jabsykes,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    It sounds like you may have downloaded or purchased applications from two different Apple IDs. To update those applications, you will need to sign in to the Apple ID that downloaded the applications initially. Please use the attached article for instructions on how to sign out and sing in to different Apple IDs on your iOS device.

  • How to change apple Id for updating

    My daughter has already signed into the app store on a different user on my mac . When I go to download or update apps on my user, I cannot do this because her apple ID has saved to the app store for the whole computer. As I  do not know her password, I am unable to update/download apps. I also cannot change the email address when doing this
    Please can someone help me remove her apple ID so that I can put mine in?
    Thank-you

    It is not whether it is straight forward or possible, it is that this is the security system in place to prevent both piracy of software and hacking of accounts.
    Whose computer is it? Who set it up? Whose account has Administration privileges on this Mac? The Mac, OS X, the pre-installed software can only belong to one person, regardless of how many of you have user accounts on the Mac. It is only this one user who can update the software.

  • How to change apple account in the ipad many times?(can't sign out)

    How to change accounts!
    I have multiple accounts not me but the whole family has apple accounts since we all are apples. Anyway everyone has a no credit card account except my dad. His account is synced in my sisters iPad. My dad changed the password so that we don't buy stuff the problem is we can't sign out of our dads account! I mean when we go to ipad:setting->store we already see that its already signed in my sisters account! But the problem is whenever my sister wants to update or download a free app it gives my dads email & wants us to fill the password! We already signed out!
    We tried logging in via itunes store then syncing the ipad but nothing happened!
    The apple retail store said after you submit the email of your ipad the only solution is to format it. But here is the big problem lets say we formatted it & after few days/months etc we wanted to buy an app we couldn't change the account to our dads account! Since we already are having trouble logging out of our dads account.
    So please tell me how to change the account many times! Because I couldn't change it in the iPad nor in iTunes in my iMAC.

    The apple retail store said after you submit the email of your ipad the only solution is to format it
    Your iPad does not have an email address.
    You will need to add a CC card to verify your account. The CC info can then be removed and the account used normally.
    It would likely be easier to simply update the apps on the computer then sync the iPad.
    iTunes can be authorized for all accounts then all apps can be updated at once.

  • Changing apple id for the icloud

    My family of four currently shares one Appleid which is becoming a problem as we dont want to share contacts etc across our iphones. How do I switch the common apple id (that each of our phones is now using) so that each phone now has its own unique id? As I am a bit thick I may need step-by-step instructions. Thanks!!!

    Everyone needs their own Apple ID(verifiable email address) for iCloud. Everyone can still use the same ID for iTunes content, but for the rest, they need separate iD's. You can create an Apple ID here:
    https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/wa/createAppleId?loca lang=en_US
    So, create separate Apple ID's for everyone other that who ever owns the existing Apple ID. Then delete the iCloud accounts on each phone & setup with the new ID's.

  • How to change apple id using the same email address

    I've had the same apple id for many years, lets just say billybob.  With that it's associated with my email address say [email protected]  When I upgraded to IoS 5 and tried to use iCloud, it says that my appleid must be in the form of an email address.  So I went in to the apple id website to change my apple id to [email protected] and it says I can't because it's already associated with another account (my own).  Is there any way around this?  I'd prefer not to have to create some phantom email address that is only applicable to iCloud.

    Please follow the commands in http://support.apple.com/kb/HE40. I would recommend logging out of your AppleID on all devices then make the change on one device and then re-login on all the other devices.

  • 10g express, how to change port number for the database home page

    10g express uses port 8080 for its http listener. However this number has been used by Tomcat on my computer. How can I chang the port number for the 10g home page?
    Regards
    jl

    Andy, thank you very much, I have been able to changed the port number following your advice.
    I hope you do not mind I ask a further questions along this line:
    I installed 10 express db on 2 computers. One with Tomcat and the other without. Following your advice, I successfully changed the port number on the one without Tomcat.
    On the one with Tomcat, I believe it was because I installed the 10g express while the Tomcat was running, I can neither go to the 10g's home page (page cannot be displyed), nor logon to the database from sqlplus (ora-12560: TNS:protocal error) even after I shut down the Tomcat. By checking with 'netstat -an', it is known that the http listerner is not listerning.
    Can I change some configuration file to solve this problem? Or do I have to reinstall 10 ex? I prefer the 1st aproach of changing config file, even it is not as easy as reinstallation.
    Thanks
    jl
