    I'm trying to set up my grandmother with her first iPhone, it's an 8GB 3GS I had laying around. I decided to set her up with a fresh new iCloud account so it isn't connected to mine. When I set up my iCloud account and my parents accounts when the service first came out, it let us choose @me.com addresses. All of us have them and I definitely prefer them. However, when I tried to create an account for my grandma, it only let's me choose @icloud.com. Is there any way to change it to @me.com?

    No I don't believe there is. Apple discontinued mobile me for iCloud and that's now the only way forward. I agree @me is much cooler but hey

    But the thing is, we didn't have @me addresses UNTIL we set up iCloud. We were never MobileMe customers.

    I may be wrong but I believe there was a period after iCloud launched where customers were still able to create me.com email addresses. It sounds like that's how you got yours but Apple put an end to that after a while.

    Oh. Makes sense. That sucked, me.com is way better. Glad I got one of those while they were available.

    Looks a lot better than @icloud in my opinion. :)

    I'm happy with my @icloud.com and @gmail.com. I personally like the gmail app way better than the default mail app because of the way the gmail app sorts emails between social primary updates and forums.

    You can't get a @me.com address anymore.

    It now called iCloud.

    As someone else said, it's much simpler and it's pretty unique as well.
