Let me explain clearly,

I have developed an application and created an app in the app-store with an apple developer id. But, not uploaded the binary version.

Now I need to upload the app with another apple id with the same name. I know if I delete the old one I can reuse the name with other id.

I need to know two things about this,

Is there any time gap required for using the name after deleting the old app(can I create immidietely after deleting the old app)?

Is it possible to use the same Bundle identifier that I used for the old one?

As the old app's binary version is not uploaded and reviewed, I just renamed that application and then used the name for the new developer id.

Apple accepts the name and the app is now in review.

I've always wondered this myself. Thanks for the information! – Andrew Larsson Dec 3 '13 at 0:18

Sorry but this can not be done
