Since now iCloud is golden, how can I create an @me.com address?
It's not Golden just yet.
You can create an @me address from iOS 5 or Lion 10.7.2 only (Already reserved my wife's address)
Not yet. You'll need iOS 5 to do so.
I sold my iPhone 4 and is still waiting for the 4S. I lent my iPad to my mother. When iCloud launches I will have no iOS device. Can I still make a @me.com address with my Mac?
If you have Lion, you can reserve your address now, but you won't be able to use it just yet.
iCloud's control panel? Did you download iCloud and iTunes 10.5?
it's gonna be nice getting all my music on my tiny MBA..
as the email, i've had one always...
would love if i could merge my old apple ID together with my "new" @me.com ... its pretty annoying having 2
iCloud for Lion is available for download already? Where?
Do you mean 10.7.2? I have 10.7.1 and I see no settings for iCloud.
Ok, apparently ios5 isn't the only thing leaked for download. Lion Developer preview as well as icloud and many others are available online. Google will give you many hits. Download at your own risk. I have the ios5 on my ipad and was able to migrate my mobile me account to icloud just now at me.com/move
I can now log into icloud.com with my .me username.
Yeah, I think the 10.7.2 update worked for some, and isn't working for many.
I was able to setup my .me email account when I installed iOS 5 GM on my iPad, it was part of the startup process. It's one of the benefits to installing the GM before everyone else gets iOS 5 and takes up all the user names. I was actually able to register firstname.lastname@example.org...nice, clean, and professional. I'll probably start using it as my main email and ease away from my gmail account.
This is going to create a new raft of problems (which I'm sure people with old mobileme account already experienced)
....I want a new @me.com address
I want that to become my main iTunes account instead of my gmail account.
No idea how that's all going to play out
It's not going to let you.
I have a gmail account that I use with iTunes and after I setup my @me.com account, I went to my iTunes account and tried to change the primary email to the .me account and it said I cant use a .me account as the main one. I was able to ad it as a secondary email on the account and can log into iTunes using it, but the gmail is still the main one.
I was expecting as much
EDIT - I wonder if you can change the primary email address on your iTunes account to a me.com email address that doesn't exist yet. Then create the me.com address.
That's got massive potential to go up it's own exhaust pipe like, but you never know!
I'm on Mac OS 10.7.2 and can't find the iCloud settings.
is the @me.com email required for anything?
You have to install the iCloud beta thing. Which puts it in the System Prefs, under Mail, Contacts & Calendars
