I set up my Apple ID and iCloud using


But a few days ago, in order to sync my Notes or Messages (I don't remember which), my Macbook said I had to create an e-mail address. So I made one. But the problem is that I my's iCloud account now uses the iCloud e-mail address.


When I go to Settings > iCloud > Account ( > Mail > Email (, to try to change the Email ack to the Email option is grayed out... How come I can't use my own Gmail account w/ my Gmail-set-up Apple ID account... I don't even use the iCloud e-mail address so it's completely useless to have it linked to my iCloud account.


I know I could just set up another account through Settings > Mail in order to view my Gmail in the Mail application... but I like to be consistent and have my Gmail email w/ my Gmail Apple ID. ANYWAY TO FIX THIS?????????

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4
