Hello MacRumors Members, My name is Daniel. Last year I created a trial MobileMe account with my online name as the username. This was a big mistake. I created an alias using my real name. This was my second mistake. This alias was the name I wished to use as the account name. However because I had added it to the account, I could not create another account and use the name after my subscription expires. I thought to myself what do I do? Do I continue using the current username and not renew the account, which would then lose me access to the alias email? Well today, 4 days from my subscription ending, I contacted apple support. I mentioned how I had seen a thread on the apple discussion boards about a user having their alias transferred to an email only account. I did not make this up as I had actually read it earlier this month. As soon as I brought this up, the person who I was talking to said that they could in fact change my alias to an email account. After confirming my identity, and deleting my alias, it has been converted in to a trial account with 60 days left rather than an email only account. Of course I plan to upgrade as soon as possible to get the missing features not present in a trial account. Just thought that some of you who have the same problem would like to know that it can be resolved. The only problem of course is then losing the original username unless adding it to a family account. However I have always used GMail for that account. The support member who I spoke to was excellent and I have even decided to get a chat transcript sent to me.
