    So my fianc and I share an Apple ID for purchases. We wanted separate iCloud accounts so she went ahead and created a whole new Apple ID for iCloud. Now when she goes into settings/iCloud and turns mail on it saying she needs to make an @me address?

    That is odd. Are you creating it with a new username, or trying to use an old one?

    Sign out of your aol account then create a new @me.com address for iCloud. If you are using the aol account for your iTunes purchases just sign in to that in the store section. They can be separate.

    It's a new Apple ID that she had just set up to use for iCloud. Her Apple ID and iCloud email is the same.

    Right now she is signed in with the Apple ID that we are sharing which is a different @aol email account.

    We finally got it figured out. What I had to do was go into iCloud instead of MobileMe and set it up. I never would have thought of that since she already had an iCloud account. Weird I know but hey its up and running lol.

    No, you don't. Everything is iCloud now - MobileMe has been discontinued.
