    You won't be able to do a backup to iCloud - Only iTunes and there are quite a few other things, Why do you want to delete your iCloud Acct.

    It will not affect your iPhone in terms of performance, but it will remove the ability for the device to do wireless backups (which means you will have to hardwire your device to iTunes and manually backup the device for restore purposes). iCloud is simply a wireless backup for your stuff, and like Jag asked, I'm also curious why you would want to turn it off...

    Just wondering once you've deleted it can you make a different account? Because my iCloud account on my phone is my dads and it keeps asking me for the password but I don't know it.

    You should be able to retreive your password, that is, if you still remember the answers to your security questions.

    If not, you can always make a different account. There's nothing stopping you from doing so.

    It sounds like you need your own iCloud account. If you share iTunes Apple ID with your Dad, you can continue to do that. You only need change your iCloud ID. You will need to use a different email address and password than the one used for iTunes. This will give you your own 5 gb of storage in iCloud. As it is, you share 5 gb with others on your Dad's account.

    I have a 4g, if I turn off an iCloud account, and log in until another one, will it delete all the data of the video games I play, I play clash of clans, will it delete the data if I change accounts?

    If you have an iPhone, iPOD Touch or an iPad, and you sign out of iCloud, it will not affect your games, at least not to my knowledge.

    They are one and the same. You opened 2 iCloud accounts. Delete one and log in to the one you said is your Apple ID.
    Note: Be careful. You're limited to only 3 iCloud accounts per device. Don't create any new ones.

    No, the game data will still be there when you log back in.
