    I posted this in another thread but never received a response so I had to start a new thread.

    So just for clarification because I've been so confused about this...

    I already have a account and want to switch to iCloud. I do not have snow leopard to upgrade to Lion so I basically can't move my me account to iCloud since the software isn't up to date...

    Instead of me going into settings and entering my apple ID that I have with, can I just create a new apple ID to utilize iCloud? And if I do that, will there be any hiccups with my contacts or will I have a new backup of all the contacts and settings/apps that I currently have on my device now?

    Will creating a new apple ID mess up the fact that my iTunes uses another apple ID?

    Sorry in advance for such a confusing explanation

    iTunes and iCloud can use totally separate Apple IDs.

    Why not just convert your MobileMe to iCloud? You can't access it from your current Mac OS, but if you created an iCloud using a new Apple ID, you couldn't access that anyway from your Mac.
