    Are you kidding me? Who thought of this crap?

    EDIT: Discovered this only applies to MobileMe members. All the more reason not to sign up for crap like that, huh?

    I've done it (though it has been a few years).

    I've found that: if you have a "normal" Apple ID, you can change your email address.

    However, if you have a MobileMe account... you're stuck with that email address as your Apple ID.

    Yeah, I can corroborate your story. I had a MobileMe account, which was the same as my iTunes account, and I cannot change my username. I changed the email address it's associated with, but the actual user name is unchangeable. Silly yes, life altering, not really.
