It should be Noted that anything Downloaded with a Particular Apple ID is tied to that Apple ID and Cannot be Merged or Transferred to a Different Apple ID
None of these answers are acceptable. I am on my third iPad the first two were stolen in airports. They both used a Hotmail address, as did the app and iTunes stores. I have successfully used my server email as my Apple id, with a new password, but the good news stops when I try to update apps or to purchase new ones. I spent an hour at my Apple store today, and this problem was not resolved. Some Apple somebody needs to offer a better fix than, Cannot be Merged or Transferred to a Different Apple Id. That won't do, people. We pay more for Apple products because we don't expect this kind of gummy glitches.
