    Hi all,

    When I set-up iCloud I took the option of using my Apple ID to set-up iCloud, this in turn made me create an email address. Now when I log into iTunes I can use either or my usual to log in.

    I am just wondering if there is anyway to make my completely seperate from my Apple ID, so I can only log into iTunes with and only log into iCloud with

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'd love an answer to this as well. iCloud has been a real pain for me and this is one of the reasons

    Hi JAmes,

    The way to have separate e-mails for iTunes and iCloud is easy.

    On your idevice, go to settings and set your iCloud to your email.
    Also in settings, change/make sure your "store" settings is set to your other account.

    This allows you to have iTunes to be different from iCloud. On your Mac or in iTunes go to the 'store' and sign in with your email (apple id) that you want.

    Now you're good to go.
