    I was able to change the Apple ID in the iCloud setting by first deleting the iCloud account under "Mail, Contacts, Calendars".  Once deleted, I just added a new account using my Apple ID.

    thanks i tried this and it worked like a charm!

    I guess this will only delete the account from the phone and not the icloud account itself?

    Great work.  I've spent the best part of 30 mins trying to figure this out (the id remains greyed out and uneditable).  Usability fail...

    When I converted MobileMe it created a second Apple Id using the MobileMe account.  This happen to anyone else?  Trying to figure out how to get out of it without losing all data.

    Can anyone confirm that when you delete the account on the phone, does it delete the main cloud account?

     

    If this is the case do I have to create a new apple ID?

    No, its like removing an email address on your phone. if you delete it, go to settings > mail contacts calanders > add account > select iCloud and start over.

    out of curiosity (I'm new to Apple).. what would/are the benefits of having a separate Apple ID for iCloud and a separate Apple ID for Store Purchases, for someone like me who's the only one in the family using a Mac and iPhone? (basically not having any multi-iDevices dilemma etc)

     

     

    I'm both curious and interested at the same time..

    And would it even be useful? Or should I just stick to using the same Apple ID because in creating another Apple ID, I'd be giving myself more of a hassle when it comes to backing up/restoring?

     

     

    I'm still in the "clouds" on this one.. Lol

    Do you have one device of each? If you do and if you are the only one using these devices, you can just create an apple itunes account and your icloud account will be the same ID but when you create a apple itunes account, make sure it's an existing email address because when I got the first iphone that came out, I created an apple itunes account that is a email address but the email address never existed until I had a problem with an app and the app developer sent a email to that apple ID email address lol Mistake I made..I dont know why apple doesn't confirm if it's an existing email address or not... but also make sure that when you create this..this is the one you will stick with for the rest of your life or until you stop buying apple products because apple does not merge two apple itunes account if you have two so whatever apps or music you buy will only be on that ONE apple itunes account. if you create a new one, you WILL NOT be able to move these to your new account. You can have multiple apple itunes account though but the apps and other stuff u have will not be on them, it will be separate.

     

    Now...if you are going to buy a second iphone or ipad or any apple device to use for different purposes, like one for work and one for home and you don't want the same contacts and calender events on each device then this is when you would create a icloud account that is different from your apple itunes account

     

    and now.... since you are new to apple...which I still am even from buying the first iphone... when you sync with a usb ...MAKE SURE ALL YOUR PICTURES ARE SAVED SOMEWHERE because itunes/icloud only syncs pictures that you take with your iphone...not pictures that you added from digital camera.... if you sync with usb to itunes...make sure you CLICK ON PHOTOS TAB and check off the boxes for the pictures to sync...OR iphotos will automatically pop up and you can save them  there but also save them somewhere else on a usb device because after the ios5 update, I lost all my pictures. I'm so upset.

    Simply make sure your husband keeps the Apple ID password and username/email so he can continue using that Apple ID.

     

    If you still need the apps etc, then tap 'Keep on iPhone'. If you don't then remove - you can still get back the Data stored using that particular Apple ID/iCloud sign-in, but only via that Apple ID.

     

    *My advice: 'Keep on iPhone' - just to be safe since we're still new with iCloud.

     

    Nx you can proceed to create a new iCloud account, which will require you to create another Apple ID. but as usual, you won't be able to "transfer" any apps from your current ID to the new one.

     

    Cheers
