    The AppleID of all my accounts (iTunes, ADC, Apple Dev Center, apple store) is my mobileme email (username@mac.com)

    I would like to change this (using some other appleid to separate these accounts from mobileme) so that I don't need to renew my mobileme subscription.
    From Apple websites, I cannot do this, AppleID cannot be changed if it is a mobileme id.

    How can I do?
    What will happend if my mobileme subscription finished? All accounts will be finished or what else?

    Thanks
    Kris

    If I understand you correctly, you do not want to pay for MobileMe yet you do want to continue using iTunes Store, ADC, etc. Well, the good news is that you can do so. You need not keep renewing your MobileMe in order to be able to use other services. Even after your MobileMe subscription expires, your Apple ID will still be valid for iTunes Store, ADC, iChat, etc.

    Yes, exactly. So it means, that after my MobileME account is finished, I can also change my apple ID to something else ?
    (it is not possible when account is tied with a MobileMe Account)

    Thanks

    You can at least change the email address :) i.e. Your Apple ID will stay as the old email address, but all emails sent to that account in regards to say iTunes Store purchases will be sent to the new email address you define.

    Pretty much it'll turn "username@mac.com" into just a username.
