I'm still waiting to hear back from Apple, but thought I'd give it a shot here. For some reason, switching e-mail address (thus Apple iTunes IDs) is not a very intuitive process, and somehow I've ended up with two iTunes accounts--one connected with a no longer accessible e-mail address. Apple tells me there's no way I can combine accounts and I'll just have to live with it. No problem. But now I can't access my original account (and the password hint: birthday says it doesn't exist). To make matters worse, some of my music-- a lot--has been downloaded with that account and several apps on my iPhone want the information for updating.

Any ideas?

    i am in the same boat and nothing.

    Well, no I haven't heard from Apple yet. But I'm slightly embarrassed. When I was told there was no way I could combine accounts, the friendly Apple lady suggested I change the ID on the old account to be similar to my new ID. I did that (and promptly forgot about it). Until just now. Once again, I'm able to update my Apps, but it's still annoying you can't combine accounts.

    More than slightly embarrassed,

    I know this is an old post, but I came across it because I ended up with the same situation and searched the forums for an answer. There is now a way to combine accounts via the website myinfo.apple.com. Log in>Manage Account>Then Manage e-mail and customer service told me my accounts would be combined in about 24 hours.
