History: I already have two Apple IDs. One I don't know the password and don't have the email anymore (hotmail sucks) and so I can't retrieve it and therefore I can't authorize music from way back when. My second one is simply a username (no .me or .gmail or anything). When I upgraded MacOS and iOS, I thought I'd set up iCloud. When I went to do that, it gave me the error that "Apple ID Upgrade Required... You must change your Apple ID login to an email address" When I go through Apple to do that, I submit the form to use my verified email address (.gmail) as the new Apple ID. It claims that it's all set but when I go back to iCloud, it won't let me use that. I've been trying to do this for hours and at this point I am ready to create a new iCloud account, however, I'm concerned that if I do that, I'll have THREE Apple IDs. I don't want to do that. please help before I rip all of my hair out! THANKS!
