OH I HAVE POSTED IN THE WRONG FORUM, MODS PLEASE MOVE THIS THREAD! Hello everyone, my name is Vaibhav and I've been a MacRumors reader for years now. I decided to join the forum since I thought I could discover many things here So here's the thing: I got my first iPod touch 3 years ago. To set up things quickly, my dad put up his E-mail ID along with his Credit Card info & everything. And since then I've been using it for almost everything except iMessage. I've not bought much from it (~$50 which is good enough for 3 years). Now, I have discovered that I shall only be using iOS Devices in the near future (because I like them ) and I think it's now time I switch from using my dad's Apple E-mail ID that I have been using for the past 3 years to my own E-mail account. I know I cannot possibly merge two Apple E-mail IDs. I hate you for that, Apple. I'm ready to bear the $50 repayment but I want all my apps to regain the progress & data they had. Another problem that I'm facing right now is that I don't have any backup of my iPhone (updated to Windows 8 & BAM everything's vanished). But now I also have a MacBook so I think I would just stick to the MBA for backing up my iPhone. So in a nutshell I have 3 questions: - I want to backup my iPhone to my MacBook Air (a computer my iPhone doesn't recognise; in the sense it would erase everything off my phone if I sync them). - Is there any way I could sync all my data back to my iPhone (game progress, Contacts, Messages etc.) with new Apple Email ID set up and most of the apps bought & redownloaded again AFTER backing it up with the MacBook Air. - Can I retain my GameCenter points (or) change the GameCenter Email ID while holding up all the records & achievements? I've tried going into Account Settings but no luck. I hope I'm not repeating this question(s) on this forum. My situation is a little different than most! Thanks a lot!
