Adding Game Center account to Apple ID?
I created my Game Center account on an iPhone 3G. At that time you didn’t have to create an Apple ID to sign into your device, and a Game Center account was just a username and password, it wasn’t a email address (and I didn’t even know it was an Apple ID, unless they were converted to Apple IDs later).
For years I’ve been signing into my Game Center account separately from my Apple ID and I’d like to add it to my Apple ID account so it’s all the same login.
If I go to appleid.apple.com and sign in using my Game Center username and password, it tells me “Your current Apple ID, XXXXXX, is not an email address. Choose an email address to use as your Apple ID.” If I input my current Apple ID email address I’m told “This email address is not available. Choose a different address.”
I know Apple doesn’t allow you to combine Apple IDs. If I assign a different email address to this Game Center name I think I’m screwed, but since my Game Center account doesn’t have an email associated with it yet I’m hoping maybe there is a workaround. Anyone know how to get this added to my current email address since it currently doesn’t have an email address associated with it?
