apple ID question

I have and old apple id that I use for my purchases on my iPhone for apps and itunes for music.

I also have a current moblie me id that is now a .me account for iCloud. Can I merge these accoutnts? Can I change my original apple ID and put it with my .me one?

Unfortunately there is no way of merging Apple ID's at this time.

Unfortunately not. It is not possible. if you want to change your old email address to another email like gmail.com, no problem. However you can not change it to an @me.com or @icloud.com address. I believe its because apple see these as separate i/d's even though they are both owned by you.

Did you look at the Apple web site My Apple ID yet?
