Re: how do i create an apple id?
The limitation is on CREATING NEW iCloud accounts using the iCloud email addresses. Once three new iCloud email addresses/accounts are created on a device, you can no longer create a NEW FREE account with a NEW FREE iCloud (icloud.com or me.com) email address. You can ALWAYS bring your own email address and create a new iCloud account on a device.
