    I know when setting up iCLoud it asks you to choose your username and it can't be changed, but is there a work around to getting the username changed?

    Do you know mean the actual user name (ex. SJobs@me.com) or you're actual name associated with the account (ex. Steve Jobs)?

    You obviously can't change the user name. You would have to set up a new account. To change the name associated with the account, you have sign into iCloud.com and go through various screens (I'll explain more if thats what you want to do).

    the user name (ex. Steve Jobs) is what i am wanting to change, if possible.
    I dont think it can be done, but thought I would ask

    I did it. I signed into iCloud.com then clicked on my name in the top-right-hand corner in the main screen. Then, I clicked the button down in that sub-menu (APPLE ID). From there, I was brought to a new page & clicked Manage ID; I changed it within there.

    Try that.

    How do you charge the associated account usename for the icloud account and not your apple id
