I have my @gmail account for iTunes purchases, and my @me account for contacts/calendar, how do I approach iCloud and how will this affect me?

I know accounts cannot be merged. The @gmail account has existed for years before the @me account.


I haven't been able to set up my phone yet because I have absolutely no idea how this will affect me, when it was quite clear before.


How will this affect me in the future? What about when my @me service expires (I had just under a free year left)? What email should I link? What should I be worried about if kept separate or the same as they are now?

I still don't even understand what exactly iCloud does yet. If I set up my phone with whatever my iCloud account is, is it locked in? Since no credit card info or applications or purchases are associated with it, it will be of no use in that area.


I am absolutely confused on what I should do, and after spending 4 hours attempting to update my phone, am still stuck on having a useable device.
