    Unfortunately no, there isn't a way to merge multiple Apple ID's.

    Maybe sometime in the future it will be available.

    The new icloud wants an mobile me address.  I already have one but it is not associated with my itunes account.  What's a person to do?

    You can only sync mail via iCloud if you have an "@me.com" address.

    If you have a MobileMe account and used it previously to sync everything like contacts, calendars, and mail, use that address for iCloud since it will have all of your information and content already.

     

    You can still use your other Apple ID to make purchases in the iTunes Store and App Store.

    I tried this on my ipod touch, but said it was existing already (because I have it).  Now what should I do?

  • AM_Kidd Level 3 Level 3 (975 points)

    Before you use your "@me.com" address with iCloud you also want to make sure you have moved everything over to iCloud using me.com/move

    As already stated above, you can't merge accounts or transfer iTunes purchases from one Apple ID to another: but there is no problem about using two IDs.

     

    Use your ex-MobileMe email address (which is also an Apple ID) for iCloud for syncing email, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, and PhotoStream.

     

    Use your other Apple ID as before for iTunes, iTunes in the Cloud and iTunes Match.

     

    There's no conflict about doing this, and you won't even notice as Keychain will log you in with the correct ID in each case. It's also better security not to have your iTunes login also your email address, given the number of complaints about hacked iTunes accounts.

    I have two accounts because my service provider changed my email address. now when i sync my iphone with my pc it keeps asking me to authorize this pc with the old account, i try, but it keeps coming back. can i just delete my old account? i don't think there is anything there that i care about

    To change the ID you are using you will need to sign out by clicking the 'Delete account' button. This doesn't delete the account from the server but just removes if from the phone. Then you can sign in with the new ID.
