No, you cannot delete an Apple ID, but you can stop using it. However, without the Apple ID you will no longer be able to download or purchase things from the iTunes Store.

    Creating iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, Mac App Store account w/o a credit card

     

    I don't think you can pay down a balance with a gift card, but I really am not sure.

    So has apple not worked out that emails can be deleted for the rest of the world and by a million to one chance it is chossen by somebody else on the same server after being wiped and the time frame has expired sufficiently.

     

    I want to use my imessage facility, but do not want it on my itunes email account as it is a personal email for business only, but I have a friends email I use, but it wont let me add it because years ago I may have used that email address for itunes!

     

    I am already annoyed at the apple restrictions, but not being able to delete this apple id, or to sync it to my proper official itunes account after varification is just plain apple selfishness.

     

    are you sure i cant delete an out of use appleid?!
