I accidently created a new apple account on my new phone, How do I merge my old and new accounts

I had an old account but had lost access to the email. In frustration I created a new account to use with iTunes on windows. Now history repeats itself and I've a new iPhone 4 that I want to load with data from both old and new accounts. Do I need to just go to the Genius bar next time I'm in town or is there some way to log into each account, back up the data and merge to the new account?

Actually not trying to merge the accounts, but back up the DATA i have stored in those accounts. Once I've pulled the many songs I purchased under the old account I'll burn them to something and delete the old account... and I think I've just answered my own question.
i.e. Don't try to merge anything, just salvage music and other data (contacts, notes)

  • Hi i do not have a job or bank account. i am a student. how can i create a free apple account. without giving a credit or debit card number.

    how do i create a free apple account without giving a credit card number.because i am still in school.

    These are user-to-user forums, you are not talking to iTunes Support nor Apple.
    The link that rmgman gave has instructions for how to create an account without giving credit card details - if you use them when creating an account then you will be able to download items from the store without having to give card details.

    You should do this to make this your iPhone and remove her info...
    If desired, move photos/videos off the Camera Roll: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083
    If desired, backup the device to iTunes or iCloud: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766
    Then, on the device...
    Settings > Messages > iMessage > Off
    Settings > FaceTime > Off
    Settings > iCloud > (scroll down) Delete Accout (this only unregisters and deletes it off the device)
    Settings > iTunes & App stores.  Tap the AppleID and sign out.
    Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings
    Unregister the device at https://supportprofile.apple.com

  • HT4623 I recently updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1 and lost all of my contacts.  My phone was less than 30 days old and I did not have an account with iCloud prior to the back-up.  Any way to restore my contacts or are they lost forever?

    I recently updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1 and lost all of my contacts.  My phone was less than 30 days old and I did not have an account with iCloud prior to the back-up.  Any way to restore my contacts or are they lost forever?

    I have the exact same problem.  I did the update on my iPhone 5 yesterday, opted for the iCloud set up in the update and then it wiped my contacts.  They are not on my phone or in the cloud...

  • I swapped my iphone from apple store india and my imei of iphone changed and i have lost the box and bill of phone , how can i get my old imei number.

    I swapped my iphone from apple store india and my imei of iphone changed and i have lost the box and bill of phone , how can i get my old imei number.

    Of course it changed. A phone's IMEI number is unique to each phone. The IMEI number for a phone does not transfer to another phone.
    Since your iPhone was exchanged under warranty without having the box and bill for the original purchase, you don't need it now either. The exchange under warranty remains under the warranty for the original purchase.

  • I cant create an icloud apple account

    I want to use iCloud for both my Mac Mini and iPhone, but the hardware themselves are not related to my problem: I can't create an iCloud account.
    1 - I know my itunes/app store apple ID is not the same as an icloud ID (an iCloud id is an actual email address)
    2 - apparently both my personal email addresses are in use (so i cant create a new account)
    3 - I click "forgot password" when I try and login using my personal email address and it says it emailed me the password.  I have tried this several times and it never sends me an email (they are both gmail accounts and yes, I checked the spam box).
    How can I create an iCloud account? 
    My only guess at the problem is that I have been a Mac user since pre-internet and I am sure I used my addresses for purchases and accounts starting a long time ago.

    You can use your current AppleID to create an iCloud account:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4436
    You are not getting the email for the password reset because the email you are currently using is not the same as the recovery email you set in your profile settings when you first created the AppleID/iTunes account. You will have to try and remeber what email you used as the recovery address.

  • HT1920 How do I merge an old account into a new one?

    Because my old account was on our church account that they no longer use, I opened up a new account. At the time I thought that both my iPad and iPhone transfered over. But now that I have updated both of them, the old email address is showing up in iCloud on both devices and they are not sharing.
    To top it off, I do not remember the old password even if the account was still active.
    The lady at the Apple store said that I needed iTunes Support to merge my accounts and then delete the old one on both of my devices. ???

    This isn't Apple Support. See below;

  • Two apple ids, two computers, one phone#-how to sync messages on on both computers

    Okay apple world, I'm a bit stumped with this one: I have two macbooks, one for work (a 2009 15" macbook pro) and a personal one (2014 13" macbook air) and two apple ids, one for work and one personal one. I also have a 5S iPhone, which I use for both work and personal use. The iPhone has been set up with my personal apple id and my iMessages sync perfectly with my personal macbook air. Now what I would like to do is sync my iMessages through my phone number with my work macbook pro. But when I try to add an additional account, I am only given the option to add a google account or I am told that my (personal) apple id is already in use. Has anyone encountered this issue and do you have any tips on how to trouble shoot through this?

    Sync is about synchronisation to Lightroom Mobile, the iPad/iPhone app, not about synchronising from one computer to another. There isn't really a way to sync two computers automatically, but you can use methods such as File>Export/import as Catalog, Dropbox, or copying through the operating system.

  • How do I merge my old apple ID account with my new one?

    My old Apple ID was linked to a very old email account that I no longer have access to. How can I get all of the music that was purchased using that account to merge into my new Apple ID account using my new email address? Thanks
