In a nutshell: No, you can't. Apple uses proprietary protocols for iCloud access (both data and backup) so you can't just switch backends by redirecting some DNS entries. And as far as I know, nobody has reverse engineered the protocols yet (at least not the full set required to implement an alternative server-side solution).

You can present the original purchase receipt showing the serial number to Apple to have them unilaterally remove the lock. The alternative is to revive the "defunct" account. Since Apple doesn't delete them, you can go through the password reset procedure to reclaim access to the defunct iCloud account. Once you are logged in to the locking account, ...

There are three current components to Apple's online photos. iCloud Photo Library (Beta) My Photo Stream iCloud Photo Sharing I think from your wording you are referring to the smaller parts and not the entire Photo Library in the cloud.

iTunes on your PC can make a backup of your device quite easily - especially if you have the two devices paired before the fall. If you haven't paired it, you'll need to have at least the digitizer working to tap to trust the computer once. Once that's done (and iTunes will prompt you), you can use the PC to back up the entire phone and/or choose to ...

Take it back to the shop. Only the original owner can disable it, or Apple, if you can prove ownership & sale by its original owner [which is harder than you think].

I'd have tried a bit harder to get my original IDs back - as everything you bought with them is currently in the hands of someone else. Contact Apple. The answer to your question is 3, but that's not the point. Apple can override that if you can persuade them.

Just restore your new iPhone from a backup of your old one, then sign it out from the old Apple ID (you need to do this in several places in the settings app, AppStore, find iPhone, iCloud....) Sign it in to your new Apple ID. You shouldn't have any problem with contacts, mailboxes etc. the only thing you'll probably lose is all of the application ...

I don't know any good way of doing so. What comes to mind is you could restore the backup of the old phone and sync data with apps on the computer so that it has all the contacts and such locally. Then wipe the new phone, set it up with your new Apple ID and no backup, then sync it with the same computer. I think then it'll put all that old information on ...

You want to unlink the accounts from your iPad if they're not yours. Then you should be able to create one for yourself. Right now you're using someone else's iCloud accounts. Why they didn't erase the iPad before handing it off is anyone's guess, but it wasn't smart on their part. They may have "moved on" with regards to the iPad you have, but they could ...

The answer is it really depends on how and why you are rotating several accounts through one piece of hardware. For example: Are you using an institutional email address (or something other than mac.com/me.com/icloud.com) for these Apple ID? The avenues for institutional management of Apple ID depends on your situation so there's no general purpose ...

I'm a little hesitant to post this because I can't try it right now and there is, as always, a chance that it won't work. But, because you are willing to repurchase apps, the transfer should be fairly achievable. I would first restore from a backup of your old iPhone to your new iPhone. If you have already setup the new iPhone then you would need to wipe ...

I suggest you use the +/- buttons on the upper left. At the time of posting, there is no mouse-input way to zoom the map in or out. I tested it on Safari on a Mac with Yosemite (10.10).

Yes - this aspect could potentially be a little confusing. There is a difference between iCloud Photo Library and PhotoStream and backed up photos and videos. Photostream Does not count towards your iCloud storage limit. Contains up to 1000 pictures (and only pictures). Also, shared photo streams (now called Shared iCloud Photos) do not count towards your ...

To expand on Stuart's comment to your question, I think the question you want to ask is "can I move my iTunes media to my iCloud folder?" Apple has a document telling you how to move your iTunes media. Since iCloud Drive shows up as a regular folder there shouldn't be any problem with moving your media to it.

iCloud Drive is specifically to sync your data between machines, roughly similar to how Dropbox etc works. Remove a file from one machine, it's gone from the others too. 'Documents & Data' was deprecated & is removed when you first convert your iCloud (Mavericks/iOS 7) storage to iCloud Drive. Alternative suggestion [untested] How about - as you ...
