Complicated Apple ID issue or at least I haven't been able to find a matching issue here in the support community. I have an apple ID that I can access but never connected to the iTunes store (CC# or pay pal not validated). It is my current email address. I do have another apple ID that I have been using for years. It came from a Yahoo account if I remember correctly when a email address wasn't required to be an ID. The trouble is that since my current apple id isn't an email address which means I can't access iCloud or Mobile.me. I want to use my current email address (my inactive apple ID) and merge it with my current apple ID which all my purchases are associated with. (ipad, iphone, ipod nano). If I could delete the inactive account I could change my current apple ID to be my primary email address.
How do I do delete my old apple ID? I tried manage my appleid but I can only verify or change information. If I create a new id what happens to my purchases?
