Hi all, I am going through the latest iPad user guide in detail- even writing things important to how I want my iPad configured in a notebook. That's just so you know I'm not looking for someone to do my work for me! OK, here I am: Settings-> iCloud. On the right side, it says "example@iCloud.com" What do I do? Do I use my Apple ID here, or create something new, to use when logging into iCloud only? Right under that, it says "Required" I don't know what is required here, can someone please tell me what it is? Thanks! The next field to fill in is "Sign In," under which you'll see "forgot Apple ID *or* password? This suggests but doesn't certify that your Apple ID or password is to be used in one or both of the two fields above. What do they want me to sign in with, exactly?? Under these things, it says "Create a new Apple ID? Now it gets interesting, because my Apple ID is my (old) email address. I say "old" because I lost the password for my 'old' email address, I did all I could to find it; couldn't, therefore I gave up and just created a new Gmail account. This makes, going back to "example@iCloud.com more interesting! If I use the address whose password I lost and cannot log in to, what if Apple requires me to log in to it? I don't know if Apple would want me to do that. OTOH, Apple certainly won't recognize my new Gmail account address.
