• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Two of my children bought iPods today. They have the kid's under 13 Apple IDs through the Family Share. After discovering that their iCloud email addresses can't be used for iMessage or FaceTime, I used the Yahoo mail instead. Apple verified them as associated with my Apple ID. Will they be able to take them back when they are old enough not to be under my account? Just curious. It isn't the end of the world, after all, if they need new email addresses some day.

I didn't think that iMessage accounts were associated with Apple IDs. They had to be verified, but I don't recall an association.

Checking a few pages on Apple shows that they are linked.
They also mention a process to unlink an email address from an Apple ID to move it to a new Apple ID.
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203042

That should remove the link. Then they can add it to their Apple ID later.
