Trying to create a new iCloud account for/with my daughter and her iPod Touch.

When I try to create a new account I get a message telling me an account already exists for that email.

So I request the Forgot Password email to be sent. The site confirms that the message has been sent. But of course the email never arrives, even in the spam folder.

Then I choose the "Find your Apple ID" link and supply the same email address. I get this message from the iCloud site: "No Apple ID found. We can't find an Apple ID matching the information you provided."

About to lose it. I've been through this loop about 5 times over three days.

What am I missing? ;-)

Could be that the servers are overloaded with the influx of AT&T and Verizon users. If you are trying to create a new iCloud account, why would you be using an old log in? If you are trying to set her up with an account attached to your current login or debit/credit card, then you would have to put those credentials in there.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.
