    Hi,

    I need your help.

    I have an old Apple ID that I use from several years. (associated with email A)

    Now I decided to change the email address associated and use a B email address that I use only to park the apple id.

    I disassociate every part of the account from the old email address, recovery email, secondary mail etc...

    Now I want to create a new AppleID with the old email address A but when I try AppleID tell me that I can't because the email address have been used as a Apple ID.

    Why?

    Apple don't allow to create a new Apple ID with an email address that has been used to create another Apple ID?

    Do you suggest to call Apple Support and ask to delete everything from their system?

    Thanks

    That's the policy. Lots of other companies do it. It makes sense when you think that lots of email addresses change hands, e.g. those issued by schools and universities which expire after a few years. There is no point in calling Apple because they won't be able to override it.
