All of your devices share the same pool of storage space so if your iPhone is using the 5 GBs, your iPad won't have any to use.Is iCloud space based on your account and shared between all your apps, or a separate allocation by device? (i.e. My free allocation is used up by my iPhone, will there be no space left for the iPad?)
But you don't. Your Apple ID and iCloud account can use the same email address. You don't have to have 2 different ones.It still REALLY irritates me that I have one user id (tpr007) for my iTunes account, and needed to create a new one for iCloud. It's so disjointed :
As far as I'm aware, you have to use an email address as your ID for iCloud.This.
I think you have to convert the old style of apple id (one word username) to your email address before it will work.As far as I'm aware, you have to use an email address as your ID for iCloud.
My apple ID, which I've used to buy lots of apps with, is just a one word username.
When I originally logged in with my username it told me I needed to use an email address, but it just created a new account and didn't merge my old one. Sucks.I think you have to convert the old style of apple id (one word username) to your email address before it will work.
I had to do so in order to use Find My iPhone a while back (before iCloud)
