Hello,

okay now I'm starting to feel really annoyed with this! I already posted a question, but I'm stuck again.

 

First problem is I tried to use my Gmail account for iChat, but because I couldn't reach some of my contacts (@mac.com).. through some advice I resorted to creating a new ID in order to get me this bloody @mac.com too. I know I have to use another email address if I want to do that. Therefore that's what I'm doing right know: creating a new Apple ID from scratch.

 

Now guess what?!? It doesn't work at all!

 

Got stuck at the registration form. I mean, I filled it all correctly more than once... but nothing. As I go to the bottom where the button says "Create" nothing happens. Instead it takes me again to top as if I had to do it again (all my text is still perfectly in the boxes). For the record: info correct, different email address (form the other ID), so the password. What on earth do I do wrong??

 

Here's the link of the Apple page:

https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyInfo.woa/wa/createAppleId?createa cctype=lite&userid=dmac&localang=en_US

 

I am trying and racking my brains but I haven't got the faintest idea how to sort this out.

Should I give up and use a pidgeon with a piece of parchment?

 

Please help... 

 

Alessandro

    Hi,

     

    What that page does not tell you is if the name already Exists.

     

    Try a slight change in Name you are trying to Create.
