icloud tells me to check email when I try to verify but I haven't received any
This is my first post -Hi to everyone-I have found these forums very helpful

Same thing for me. I finally added an alternate email and made it the default. The verification email showed up right away on it. My original email was a gmail address.

Yes,i had problem which i didnt know stemmed from it using two different email addesses,on initial setup it wouldnt accept my usual one so i used another,then it used my usual one later which caused a problem.

Hi all--I talked w/apple top tech and we found that I had different email user addresses One for iTunes and one for iCloud. when I changed the one in iTunes to the same as I was trying to use in iCloud, iCloud was then useable.

Finally sorted the problem out-Apple could not help so they put me in touch with a senior accounts supervisor at Itunes.The problem resulted from a second account to an old email(I had changed ISP's) and it was still operating from that account and ofcourse I
couldn't verify this account. After a bit of messing around it was sorted and all is well.
Thanks for the advice.

I was half asleep when I typed in my original email for icloud. I mistyped it, and maybe that's what the issue is, but I don't know how to get it to straighten out. I've tried using a different email address, including yahoo and gmail...neither one are working with icloud...HELP

It finally worked...go figure...I think it may be the gmail address that was messed up.
