Unknown to me, my daughter started iCloud on her iPhone and it deleted all my contacts from my MacBook. Then I started a secondary account by migrating my MobileMe account to iCloud. So now I need to delete the account that she started and make my MobileMe the primary account. Or delete them both and start over.

I have been using Mac devices for 15 years, and this iCloud is the most confusing and thoroughly ill-conceived software that Apple has ever produced.


MacBook (13-inch), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Right, your daughter has only recently started opening iCloud accounts, unknown to you.

    I'm not really sure what is all that confusing about it. If you have logged into both accounts on your devices, log out of them both. You can log out of your primary account at system preferences > iCloud > sign out. You can log out of any secondary account you are logged into from system preferences > mail, contacts and calendars.

     

    Once you have logged out of all accounts, log back into your account of choice using system preferences > iCloud.

    But, Winston, you have NOT answered the question. I want to do the same thing Lee did, like more than a few of my very computer savy friends - they have two icloud accounts, one that came with the OSX of a newer computer, and another account that migrated from mobileme. So, HOW DO YOU delete the secondary account.

    You can't delete it, you just log out of it, then login to the one you want.
