How do you delete all the cloud content for a particular Apple ID?

    Hi....I recently switched from one Apple ID to another (mainly because the one I was using was not an iCloud/Mac/Me email so I couldn't sync notes through it, so I used my @mac.com account just for notes, and now I've just consolidated everything under that mac.com Apple ID).

    To move my iCloud data to my mac.com Apple ID, I went into my Mobile Documents folder, copied everything out of it, deleted what was in Mobile Documents, and then switched all my devices to the new mac.com Apple ID and moved all my content back into the Mobile Documents folder.

    The problem is that my old Apple ID still has all that content out in the cloud, and I'd like to blow it away. But it's orphaned now, since my iPhone and Macs are all using the new mac.com Apple ID. Is there a way to blow away all the content out in the cloud associated with a particular Apple ID? The iWork stuff is easy enough, through the web interface, but the rest....not so much. Thanks.

    Did you check through the Apple site Apple-My ID site. Maybe you can check there.

    Yeah, there's nothing there to address my needs. Not even an option (that I saw) to "delete" an Apple ID and wipe everything out.

    I solved it by signing into my old icloud account using my media center mac, going into manage storage and deleting everything there. Then I went into icloud.com and deleted my addressbook, calendar, and reminders.

    Too many accounts in my life.
