I made a foolish mistake when creating my iCloud email address. There was a misspelling that I did not catch. Now, my iCloud email is unacceptable to me with this spelling error. I understand that one can not edit the email address.
Items: I have iPod Touch, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
AppleID: I have only one. It is NOT a mismatch of iCloud email address to AppleID.
Default Email: This is correct and it is NOT my iCloud id.
Actions taken so far:
on apple.com website, under account management, I deleted the verified iCloud email.
on the ipad, under settings/icloud I clicked "delete account" with addition option of delete everything in lieu of "keep on iPad"
Results: /fail. When I reactivate the iCloud on my iPad, the settings automatically revert to the unacceptable iCloud email with the mistyped/misspelled id.
What I Need Help With: I need someone to help me identify the ways to do the following:
delete the old iCloud id that I don't want
create a new iCloud id (firstname.lastname@example.org)
associate the new iCloud id with my AppleID and all my iDevices
