    I know when you download apps on your apple ID, its there incase you get a new phone or something. I have the same apple ID for both my iPhone and macbook pro.. What if I want to change my apple ID email and login.. is that possible while still being able to keep the apps I downloaded/purchased on my phone and laptop??

    Yes, go into iTunes then Store then View My Account and you should be able to edit the email address in the first box. It should change it for the App Store also but its the same procedure to do it in the App Store.

    ok I see it.. only problem is you cant delete apple ID's, I wanted to use my other apple ID but it wont because of the email address being already taken.

    You could go to Yahoo or somewhere and make a bogus email, log into the old account and change its email address and then use that email address for the new account.
