    Hi,

     

    You will notice that although it is titled "Delete An Apple ID" it does not actually answer the Question.

     

    The whole piece is phrased as delete this here and delete that there but in no way deals with deleting an Apple ID from the Apple Database.

    And  I have this question too 35

     

     

    If someone thought the question meant something else, they would have said before now.

     

    Edit

    See item three

    From this very thread

     

    (Only on Death can an ID get deleted or at least ended for End User Access)

    Any other answer does not fit the question.

    Hi,

     

    The Original Poster did not even bother to the early replies that were made back in December 2012.

    One of those (mine) asked where they wanted to delete it from.

     

    They can be deleted from apps (Or System Preferences in Mountain Lion).

    They cannot be deleted from Apple.

    Is it possible for me to delete my apple id. I would be signing up with Sprint in 2 weeks time. I want to get a new phone number. For that reason, I already created a new apple id on my mac. Is it possible for me to delete my old apple id?

    Hi,

     

    From your Mac, yes.

    From Apple's Database, No.

    Hi,

     

    I Want to delete my account, ...

     

    You can't

     

    or block it till i want it to be activated ...

     

    Not possible either.

     

     

    There must be someone in apple i can speak to to delete this account?????

     

    The only way I know is to use iTunes.

    Open it to the Store.

    Scroll to the bottom of the "page".

    Use the Help Column and then Support.

    Chose "Contact Support" at the bottom of the new web page.

    On the next page select the "Contact iTunes Support" in the right hand pane.

    It will need you to be logged in to the next page but select Account Management

    This will open a drop down/Expansion

    Select Managing or Editing an Apple ID

    This will then open to a Email link.

     

    Send an email and discuss your issue of "I keep getting Hacked" and see if there is anything else you could do.

    This is insane!!!

     

    Can the Grand Dragon appoint a Level 5 Elvin scribe to help me bypass the obscure "Your Apple ID has been disabled" note I'm getting because Apple logic directed me to create multiple accounts for the multiple devices I've purchased over the years but now cannot merge?

    Hi,

     

    I presume you are not talking about the app called Logic.

     

    I think I know what you mean as I am sure I have an Apple ID somewhere that relates to my Bondi Blue Ver A Original iMac which the only Apple Device that has ever gone west on me.

     

    I then bought an G4 Tower and created the Apple ID I use today.

     

    I normally tell people to start here  http://www.apple.com/uk/support/itunes/contact/

    On the right use the iTunes Stores link.

    After than chose any Manage Account type option and proceed across the pages in the same manner.

    Eventually you get offered an Email link.

    Use this to explain the problem.

     

    People report that these people who reply have access that can sort various things about your Account(s)

    They may not be able to Merge them but they should be able to unlock any problem ones.

    After that you would be advised to stick to one ID.

    Hi,

     

    Open iTunes.

    Access the Store.

    Click on your account.

    (Password needed)

    Use the edit button next to the Payment info line.

     

    However back at the first iTunes Store "page" there is a Redeem item.

    Hi,

     

    I will once again refer back to an early answer.

    In this case the summary on the 13th October 2013.
