For those who still have the problem - I have found a way arount it.
1. Just logout from the Store and login with the new email (appleID).
2. Delete the current iCloud account from your iPhone, leaving the data that's on the phone untouched.
3. Login to iCloud with your new email(appleID) and select "Merge" for the details that are already in the cloud.
And you're done.
Apple could have really made this simpler.

You are a genius!! I have 2 Apple ID's, one is my primary email account and the other was a me.com account. Of course when I went to the website to change my Apple ID from one to the other, it either said I couldn't use another Apple ID for an additional email or it said my Apple ID was already in use. Really??? You made this so simple and you're correct, why didn't Apple???? Thanks again!!!!

I have the same problem except it says that I cannot delete my iCloud account because my iPhone is being restored. Now what do I do?
