    Hope this helps. I had same problem and  I had forgotten that a few months ago I set up another Apple ID with the same primary email address and my apple ID as a address. I had the same email address associated with both Apple IDs. I changed the ID associated email to a different email address (as it happens a gmail addres) and I received a verification email on my gmail acct. Then I went back to my appleID which peviously failed to go through verification process and this time I received an email to my usual  email acct and after clicking verify link, all OK now. Previously I could not use Face Time on my iPad and now I can. I could always use Apple Store before all this.

    this most likely means you have a 2nd AppleID that has this same email address listed as an alternate email address for it.


    Manage Your Account at


    check to see if any of your or family members other email addresses have yours associated with it... because if they do it won't send the verification email since it's already verified to another account.

    OMG!  You just saved me from so much frustration!  I tried to fix the same problem for litterally hours and just tried what you did and it worked!  Thank you so much!  I accidentally had the new email address (that I was trying to change my apple ID to) linked to a second apple ID so it wouldn't send the verification email.  I deleted the new email out of the 2nd apple ID and finally got the verification email so I can now update the old apple ID to my new email address!  Thanks again!

    That's what my account is saying, "it's already been verified to another account" but I just don't get it, i don't know, I'm not good at this computer stuff, I need someone to explain me HOW I disassociate this e-mail address, I'm SO lost. The problem began after I downloaded the iOS 5, whenever I try to log with the Brazilian account it says I need to verify by means of the e-mail address, however it refuses to send me the e-mail right after I agree to do so, by stating this account has already been verified to another account, as you yourself stated. You guys make it sound simple, so I'm at least no longer worried hehe

    Thanks already!




    Ps: I'm gonna check my father's iPhone as soon as he gets home, make sure he's not logged to my account or something...

    Same issue, first apple product ever bought, and first apple id ever created. Having 2 ID's is not the issue here.
