So I have a blogging identity that I run through an anonymous gmail account. I use that same gmail account for my iTunes purchases. I also have my normal gmail account, which is what I'm using here.
I update to iOS 5, and suddenly my friends and family are getting SMS from my blogger email addy ID. It's nothing scandalous (a variation of "sarcastic"), but it's certainly caused some confusion and more than a few unanswered messages.
I tried to fix it by adding my account to my iCloud ID. It hasn't helped. Some people continue to get messages from others say (and I believe them), they are receiving nothing.
Next, I created a new apple ID ( , and am about to begin using that. But two problems with this "fix" occur to me:
1. All my app and iTunes purchases are via my anonymous ID.Moderation Notice: This post has been edited by IPF staff in accordance with the Forum Rules Please do not post email address, links, or personal information.
2. What if I want to message with someone, but don't yet want to give out personal information (for example someone from a dating site)?
I appreciate your advice.
