    Hello all,

    I want to create an @iCloud email account and use it as the iTunes account, possible?

    Also,
    How many @iCloud email accounts can I create?

    Thanks

    It does not look like I can create @cloud.com without having an iTunes account.
    True?


    Seems like the solution may be to make iTunes account with another email, then change the iTunes account to the @cloud.com account.

    Was hopping someone might know of another method they could share.

    I don't know how many @iCloud.com accounts can be created, but I'd guess no more than 5.

    You can use an @iCloud as your Apple ID (iTunes account) if you already don't have an Apple ID. If you do, you can't change it to any type of Apple account like @iCloud. (It's bizarre that Apple allows new users to use it but not old ones who want to change it to an @me or @icloud.)
