Hello all. Problem in bold and question in italics below. Thanks in advance!


So I have two Apple IDs (let's call them appleID1@mac.com and appleID2@mac.com), both set up when I was back in high school seven years ago. I went with the first after forgetting the password to the second.


Anyway, now that everyone's migrated to iCloud (with @me.com email addresses) I'm trying to ressurect the second Apple ID (it's more professional looking) so I can use the @me.com email address, and abandon the first.


I've been reading around the forms here and doing some research, and it appears you can't (yet, at least) merge two or more accounts into one. I would, then, like to migrate from my first Apple ID/@me.com address to the second one.


Any tips on how to do this? I have the usual things tied up with the old account (iTunes [music only], iPhone/Mac apps, iCloud data, etc. etc.). Most of it I'm not worried about losing, as I try to buy free apps. The occasional $$ purchases I can repurchase. Is there anything else I should be worried about? Thanks!
