I need someone to explain me how the username, Apple ID... works. By now I had to change my password 4 times (and since a password can only be used once a year -agrivating...- it had to be 4 different ones) and I think I have like 3 apple ID's.


I posted a topic with an apple ID mark.straatman (link) (using my @me email address), and aparently I'm posting under another apple ID now (mark-straatman).


what I want:

1 Apple ID: Mark.Straatman

1 account

1 password


how do I get this? I got a degree in IT technics, have been working with computers all my life, but the login section on really makes me use my skills, but even then I didnt get it to work properly...


can someone help me get this right? its confusing the **** out of me

    If you just want the one account with the one password your best bet is to head to, all you need to do from there is to sign in with the AppleID that you want to use and make the secondary email your account, if you get an error saying that the account is already in use on another AppleID, just login to the account on and change the account to a different email, then it is free to use
