    Hi guys!!

    I'm a new iPhone user and I'm having issues when trying to create my apple ID using my main e-mail.
    Wouldnt like to create my ID using a secondary one.

    Does Apple accepts @msn domains?

    What do u suggest me to do?

    Do you have tips about apps, for which apps would be nice to DL?
    Im coming from WP and I don't know that much about iOS apps

    Thanks in advance!! =)

    Welcome to iMore! Why not use the @icloud.com email for your Apple ID? I think you can use any you wish. I haven't heard of any restrictions on domains.
    Apps depend on what you like. But some you might like are:

    You get an iCloud email address when you set up. It's usually name@icloud.com.
    Can you do it on your phone? Go to Settings > iCloud > set up ID.

    I'm new iPhone user. Just bought :P
    didnt started it yet, due to this.

    Wanted to use my main e-mail (which is @msn), but it won't let me. created a new e-mail, this time on gmail and I'm moving my contacts over there.

    about the msn issue, there's nothing i can do about, right? :/

    That shouldn't be an issue. There are no email domain restrictions as far as I know.

    Set it up on your phone. Just follow directions and prompts. No reason why you can't use the msn.
    This may help.
