Hi All

New here, so please be gentle :D

I was wondering when I would be able to create an @me.com email address. Will it be when iOS5 is released and iCloud available?

Thanks

Basically, yes. I think developers running the iOS 5 beta can create them now but everyone else will have to wait until the official launch of iCloud and iOS 5.

OK thanks!

I've just made the switch from Windows to a MacBook. I'll continue to use my hotmail until I can create a me.com address.

Thanks for your help.

I too want to switch to a .me, though I think .mac was a cooler domain.

And this will be free to do, right?

Unfortunately you won't be able to get a .mac address but your new .me one will be free. :)

Yes you can. Simply create another account.

how? my girlfriend already has an apple-account and the new @me address should of course be associated with her apple-ID
