Hi there.

 

My apple id is *******@gmail.com

 

I have been using my ******@me.com address for all my emails, imessage, and facetime.

 

I am fully aware that apple will not let me change my apple id & primary address to me.com. So the ******@gmail.com is essentially a username.

 

However for the past year or so i have had no issue at all using my ******@me.com address for signing into imessage & facetime.

 

 

Today i cannot use my *******@me.com to sign into my factime or imessage.  It throws up and message saying "Error description not availible" when i try to sign into imessage or facetime.

 

it only gives me the option to recieve at my ****@gmail.com adresses.

 

It is to be noted that i can still sign into itunes etc. using *****@me.com as my apple id. also me ***@me.com emails work fine.

 

So i went onto the edit my apple id page and signed in.

 

https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/

 

 

it looks like

 

Apple ID & Primary Email address

 

********@gmail.com

 

 

Alternate apple id

 

*******@me.com

 

 

Alternate email address

 

NONE

 

(i tried putting in my ***me.com and my ****@gmail.com addresess and it simply does not let me.

 

 

Also i cannot get my new ****icloud.com address to work in anyway. Send, receive. Nothing. And yes i have added it to accounts etc.

 

 

Your help would be much appreciated
