When I try to change my Apple ID's email address (a Hotmail address), I get the message
This email address is not available. Choose a different address.
The email address I intended to change (a Gmail address) is mine and I had another Apple ID opened with that earlier. I was not able to delete that account, as Apple doesn't allow that. Hence, I put a Yahoo email in the account so I could remove the Gmail from the account. So, currently, there is no Apple ID registered with the Gmail address.
- Why can't I switch my current Apple ID to the Gmail address?
- Should I transfer all my info to the Gmail as a newly Apple ID and use that if the change is not possible?
