Hi, have just made the move from Hotmail to Me. Whereas my Apple ID for app store etc has always been -----@hotmail.com, have just gone to change it to me new -----@me.com address and it says that this can't be done.

Why is this?

Is there a way to do it? It's really annoying.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

I changed my @.com.au to @me.com when me.com addresses where introduced. A nice guy in India changed it for me, but i still was unable to access apps i bought under the old name.

So you did manage to change your AppleID to your @me address? Although your purchase history did not carry over? How did you go about changing your AppleID to your @me address?
