So I have a gmail email address that I have been using as my Apple ID for quite some time now. When iCloud was launched I added a address to this account so I could take advantage of the notes syncing feature of iCloud.


I now want to start using my email address as my only email address and shut down the gmail account completely. Only problem is when I go to and try and change my "Apple ID and Primary Email Address" to be the @me one it tells me "You cannot create an Apple ID using a MobileMe account. If this is your email address, it is also your Apple ID".


All I want to do is remove the gmail address off the account and continue using the @me iCloud email that is attached to the account anyway. Why is this proving to be so hard?

iOS 5.1
