    Has anyone had success creating an @icloud.com Apple ID with iOS 6 beta 3? Every time I try, I get the following error:

    Perhaps I'm missing something.

    As far as I know you don't have to create anything. You already have it as an email alias. Have you tried emailing your normal ID with @icloud.com ? I tried after I read about the change and have received any emails since then sent to @icloud.com

    I still can't seem to get my @icloud.com to work yet. Tried replacing @me.com with @icloud.com and consistently get delivery failure. My Understanding was it took a few days to activate but it still hasn't. Running iOS 6beta3, but tbh I don't care as @me.com is much easier than @icloud.com!

    Try logging in to beta.icloud.com. Then wait a bit (takes like 10 minutes?).

    Did that. Working now, but took approx 2 weeks. I like the little pull down address selector

    Hey guys,

    Same issue on the IOS6 Beta 3, i am trying to register a new @icloud email ID but impossible from the add account on the mail section.

    Everything goes smoothy when filling up the info, but at the end it just says :

    Cannot create new apple ID, server Error.

    Do you know how can i proceed? Anyworkaround or reasons?

    If it works for somebody, I will be thousand grateful if one can help create one email iCloud? I will give the name which is available. And I will give him 10 euro via paypal.

    Many thanks guys
