    So looking through all the options on the beta ios I started thinking maybe it would be nice to have a .me account and it could possibly replace gmail.

    So I click the on button to create a new free .me account and it says that it will be my new apple ID. Is this just a simple email address change to login in with? It will let me change my apple id back to my gmail accout afterward correct? It's basically jus changing your login info correct?

    You can replace it as your Apple ID, if you want. If you don't want it to, just sign out of the account, or delete it depending on what service your changing it for.

    Then sign into the one you want to use. Personally, I'm making the switch from gmail to my email completely by the time iOS 5 and iCloud are final. I have started already.

    Can you only make the .me account through the dev account? I really want to make one on my first name as it is not being used but am afraid someone will pick it once it is released to the public... now only if I could get my hands on this for free.

    How/where are you doing this, I went to Apple and it says they are not accepting new subscribers?
