    OK, so I have a .me account, and a seperate apple ID, (yahoo.co.uk), so which do I use for iCloud? I've tried looking for advice on the apple website, but it seems very vague for this scenario. I can't change my yahoo ID for the .me in iTunes. So who is doing what?

    Many thanks

    AFAIK, you need both to take full advantage of iCloud. You have to have a .me email address to use cloud syncing for notes (because they go into your .me email). I don't know about email because I use gmail.

    Once you have set up a .me address, you can just log in with Apple ID and it will remember.

    I had the same problem.

    In the end I used my .me account since you have to make a .me email address for iCloud. I still use my itunes/apple id for apps. The problem with using the .me account - your apps don't show up as purchased items in iCloud. Although if you backup your device with iCloud it should have a copy of your apps. Haven't verified since I haven't jumped on the iCloud backup system yet. Still backing up to local.
