I cannot log into iCloud using my Apple username and password.  I keep getting an error message that states "CANNOT SIGN UP - The Apple ID is valid but is not an iCloud account."  How do I fix this?

You are getting this message because you are attempting to create an iCloud account on a PC.  You can only create iCloud account on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) running iOS 5 or higher, or on a Mac running OS X Lion (10.7.2) or higher.  After creating your account on one of these devices you will then be able to sign into the account on your PC.

  • How do you shut off I Pad with full shut off and then reboot it as I keep getting an error message that I cannot connect with I Tunes Store

    How does one shut off and reboot an I Pad? I think you have to hold button to the right for several or more seconds until a red arrow appears. I am not sure and I want to resume my connection to I tunes store and heard this is the best way for them to get back to me with certain info.

    Thanks. I tried every method to reconnect to the I Tunes store since the error was cannot connect and I could not update or download apps, even tho the I Pad worked fine otherwise. When it re booted and re set the I tunes store message popped up and asked me for some credit card and other info. When they got it I was back in business and apps could download as before. I tried every other suggestion online and this was my last chance and it worked great. My router had to be re set the other day by turning it off and then on, and that's when all this started happening. Probably changed the I Tunes setting but I never thought it would affect the IPad in any way since all my othe computers worked just fine.
    Again, many thanks.

  • After moving from Canada to the US, getting a new iPhone 5C, and restoring my backup from iCloud, I can't update my apps. I get an error message that my account is not valid in the Canadian App store and I must change to the US store. How do I do that?

    Change here:

    You must have a verified billing address & be located in the country whose store you are trying to use.

  • I keep getting an error message that reads: Not enough storage This iphone cannot be backed up because there is not enough icloud storage available. What does this mean? How do I fix it?

    I keep getting an error message that reads: Not enough storage This iphone cannot be backed up because there is not enough icloud storage available. What does this mean? How do I fix it?

    Try doing a hard reset:
    Press and hold both the Home button and the Sleep/wake button simultaneously for about 15 seconds and release when the Apple logo appears.
    After that: go to Settings - iCloud - Storage and backup - turn off the iCloud backup
    and backup with iTunes from now on

    Or, if you prefer to keep backing up with iCloud, check out this article, it will help you understand how to manage the iCloud storage:

    many thanks.
    I'd report the problem to the iTunes Store.
    Log in to the Store. Click on "Account" in your Quick Links. When you're in your Account information screen, go down to Purchase History and click "See all".
    Find the item that is not playing properly. If you can't see "Report a Problem" next to the entry, click the "Report a problem" button. Now click the "Report a Problem" link next to the item.
    (Not entirely sure what happens after you click that link, but fingers crossed it should be relatively straightforward.)

  • HT1766 I backed up to my PC and attempted restore but I keep getting an error message that "iTunes could not restore the iPhone because not enough free space is available." I have a 32GB iPhone; only 13GB used!!!  HELP!  iCloud backup/restore did not work

    I backed up to my PC and attempted restore but I keep getting an error message that "iTunes could not restore the iPhone because not enough free space is available." I have a 32GB iPhone; only 13GB used!!!  HELP!  iCloud backup/restore did not work either! How can I resolve this problem to restore from back up.

    If you're not a developer then you really should not have upgraded.
    I'm unsure how you can fix this as you have already done a back-up on iOS 7 and apple don't support firmware downgrades.

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    Open the Mac App Store and go to Purchases. Do you see Final Cut Pro X listed?
    If so, open a Finder window, choose Applications in the sidebar and delete Final Cut Pro X. Then, go to the Mac App Store and download Final Cut Pro X for free.
    If you don't see it in Purchases, see if it's hidden, and if so, unhide it > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4928 If it doesn't work, contact with the Mac App Store support > http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact

    i cant signed on the game center on my iphone.which is a japan lock how can i fix this?

    Hi, bamboo64. 
    Try closing all open applications in multitasking and power cycling the device.  Once this is done test the results.  If the issue persists, I have included a couple troubleshooting articles that I would recommend going through. 
    iOS: Force an app to close
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5137
    Troubleshoot issues on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
    If you haven't been able to connect to the iTunes Store:
    Make sure your date, time, and time zone are correct in Settings > General > Date & Time.
    Note: Time Zone may list another city in your time zone.
    Make sure that your iOS software is up to date by tapping Settings > General > Software Update (iOS 5 or later) or connecting your iOS device to iTunes and clicking Check for Update on your device's Summary page.
    Check and verify that you're in range of a Wi-Fi router or base station. If you're on a device with cellular service, make sure that cellular data is turned on from Settings > General > Cellular.
    Note: If connected to cellular data, larger items may not download. You may need to connect to Wi-Fi to download apps, videos, and podcasts.
    Make sure that you have an active Internet connection. You can check the user guide for your device for help with connecting to the Internet.
    Make sure that other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet.
    Try resetting (turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router.
    If the issue persists, try troubleshooting your Wi-Fi networks and connections.

  • HT2513 I have just upgraded to the icloud and now I am getting an error message on ical - saying "make sure the URL is correct", I haven't changed anything so why is it now an issue? any ideas?

    I have just upgraded to the icloud and now I am getting an error message on ical - saying "make sure the URL is correct", I haven't changed anything so why is it now an issue? any ideas? 
    The full message sasy "The calendar https:// cal.me.com:8443/principas/users/(server number) was not found on the server.  Make sure the URL is correct.

    10.6.8 cannot access iCloud's facilities - you can set Mail up manually and there is a hack which some people have used to sync calendars (see below) - you cannot sync any other type of data.
    This is the situation with iCloud and Snow Leopard:
    Your email, calendars, and 'Find my iPhone' will be migrated to iCloud. Contacts and Bookmarks cannot be migrated from a Snow Leopard Mac.
    Your iDisk, together with website hosting and Gallery, will continue to work as before until next June.
    Syncing of Dashboard Widgets, Dock Items and Keychains between Macs, and Mail Accounts, Mail Rules, System Preferences, Signatures & Smart Mailboxes between Macs & iOS devices, will cease altogether.
    You will be able to access email and calendars on the iCloud website at http://icloud.com provided your browser is reasonably up-to-date.
    You will not be able to sync contacts or bookmarks from a pre-Lion Mac.
    You will be able to enter the server settings for email manually in the Mail application and access your email.
    You will not be able to sync your calendars directly.
    Some people have been able to set up calendar syncing by using the method detailed here - this is an unsupported hack and may not be reliable, and may stop working at some future point.  BusyCal is an iCal-like calendar application with extra facilities: it can sync with the iCloud Calendar while running on Leopard, Snow Leopard or Lion.
    There appears to be no method of syncing contacts (though Address Book on a Mac can be synced with Google or Yahoo address books - I don't know how reliable this is).

  • I updated my itunes this morning, and now I keep getting an error message when trying to burn a disc. Any ideas how to resolve this?

    I updated my itunes this morning, and now I keep getting an error message when trying to burn a disc. Any ideas how to resolve this?

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.
