my apple id was set up using my email address - @    Now I want to change my email address and scrub @ sky altogether as it has become full of juink and scams since being taken over by yahoo.  Can I change my id without losing everything?


I have set up an icloud email address (not used it yet), but the password from my @ sky account is still active and the new password for the icloud email address is not being recognised.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    go to and log in with the old Apple ID


    change primary email address


    verify it


    done, nothing will change, besides the email addres

    after you're done: log out of the stores/remove icloud account from your devices and log in with the new emailddress. Your purchases will still be on the account.
