  1. Hi! It did not work for me. I still have my Apple ID which I don’t want to change but still have my iCloud email address which I want tio change. Help!

    • I have tried to delete my cloud acct and can not delete it. I have forgot my password tried to reset it but the email address that it send the info it is not working. I need to change the email address to wildcatsnana01 at gmail.com Can you please help me

  2. It doesn’t work for me. I just need to change the email address not the Apple ID. I can’t finf a way to change ot including deleting the entire account. I even tried to create a new Apple ID with my other email addresses but keeps getting back a reply that those addresses have been registerd already for Apple ID though I know I haven’t.

  3. This DID NOT work at all, won’t let me shut off my ipad unless I put in my password to my old email address, which that doesn’t work anymore either….I need to change this to my new email address in order for all this to work together

    • Tried it again, this time I put my old password to my old email address and it worked. I guess that is what you have to do….deleted the account and started all over again… thanks for these comments…

  4. I can’t turn off the “find my ipad” feature on my Ipad without a valid icloud id and password, which I don’t have. My icloud id is linked to an old email and no password. Is there a way to delete my icloud account without closing the find the ipad feature?

    • I went through this miserable problem myself. After fighting a constant request to log in to my iCloud -which automatically had the WRONG Apple ID and I could not use the old password, etc., because then the Apple ID wasn’t recognized, but I couldn’t change my Apple ID or delete the account because the Find my iPod feature requires the same log in info that was no longer valid! I had to use the Find my iPod feature on my laptop and erase my iPod from my computer! Boo Apple. Not cool.

  5. turning off everything didn’t work for me. it won’t allow me to turn off find my Iphone. won’t accept my password.my old or new one.

  6. I want to change the e-mail address in iClould. I followed the directions that Siri got for me. I went to the screen were you can change e-mail. Once there it ask for OLD e-mail, which I provided. Then ask for the password. I used my current Apple ID password, which didn’t work. So I tried every password I could think of that I have ever used since getting my first iPhone-3. I now have iPhone-5. Where do I go from here. I’m stuck in iPhone purgatory.

  7. I changed my primary Apple ID email because my original was tied to a job I no longer want it registered to. I have thousands of pictures on my iCloud, which was set up in conjunction with my original Apple ID email (work email address) and I need to change this to match my new new, revised, Apple ID. How do I do this and retain all of my data that is stored in iCloud? I can’t have emails going to my work email anymore.

    Thank you.
