Forum Question: How Do I Change My Apple ID From a Hotmail To Other Mail?

I have had an Apple ID for many years, with no problems. I use the two factor authorization as well. My Apple ID uses a hotmail account. Most of my mail uses gmail accounts. In general, I prefer gmail and had considered changing my Apple ID to use one of those gmail accounts. I can’t find where I read this, but I recall some sort of cautionary statement about making the switch to a new Apple ID. My Apple ID is a USA one, but I live overseas. This is not a problem, but does mean I do not have a USA phone number if that is an issue. Question is, can you advise if switching my Apple ID with a gmail account would make any difference?

    I did a video on this recently: How To Change Your Apple ID Email Address .

    As for whether you will have trouble because you are overseas and have a US Apple ID, I simply don’t know. I don’t see how using a Gmail address would be any different than using a Hotmail address, though.

    Thanks Gary, I should have been more thorough in checking the video archives. I mention the US Apple ID is because I’ve had instances with other USA based companies that can’t set up security measures unless a USA phone number is used. Video you created to is clear. Thanks
