    So I've run into a little speedbump after installing iOS5. Before I went into my phone and used it for the first time after installing 5, I moved my MobileMe account onto iCloud. That worked fine. However, after doing this I went into my iPhone and logged in with my appleid without really paying attention to what I was doing. In doing this, I created an iCloud account for my cablevision email address, which is the one linked to my iTunes. So now I have two iCloud accounts, one which is my old mobileme address that I use frequently, and one that I never use, which is the one linked to my iTunes. Any suggestions on how I could work this out so I don't have to juggle two accounts?

    Unfortunately, there is no solution. It's not possible to merge these accounts, so you'll have to keep using both if you don't want to lose all your past iTunes purchases.

    I would switch them around though: setup your iPhone with your iCloud account, so all your mail, contacts, calendars, etc. are synced. And whenever you purchase something using iTunes, enter your cablevision account info. It should save that email address, so the only thing you'd need to re-enter is your password, making it not all that different from before.
