iCloud account limit reached?!?

I've read everywhere possible reasons as to why this is happening. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing I can do until apple stops this 3 accounts per device charade and finds another way to limit this kind of stuff . It's crazy how Windows Live offers 25 gb per person and does't limit them and Apple can limit 3 accounts per device with only 5 gb ! I guess I kinda like the new google calendar interface anyway.

Anywhooo , is there some hack/edit/way to bypass this cra*py system they're using? Or could I simply edit my serial number and stuff to match that of my eMac?

Yay its working!

I want to report, that if your in the same boat as me, as in your hardware info is missing or wrong or used up all three times, you can take your ole' disable (or still working) PPC Mac, in my case an eMac, and replace the serial on your smbios.plist file and it will work!

need 1+ icloud account

Can you please post the solution for those who don't know how to replace the serial number in the smbios.plist?

I have multiple accounts on my mbp and I want an icloud account for all users. I actually even deleted one of my users on the mbp hoping that it will take the user off the icloud list and let me create new one but it didn't. Once you hit the limit your done with.

Any suggestions on how I can make another iCloud account once I have reached the limit?

For those who care, apparently you can submit a request with the iTunes Express Lane for Apple to give you one more account if you have reached the limit.

But that is kind of lame. If anyone finds a better way please let us know.
