iCloud errorThis email address is not available for use as an Apple ID

<>
The issue faced by iphone users while changing their email id for icloud account with existing secondary emails and they face the error message apple id this email address is not available choose a different address. Sometimes the users are prompted to verify your email address.Using secondary email Id to create the Apple iCloud ID blocks the Apple ID creation process.


So when you are trying to change the Apple ID email it will say  "This email address is not available. Choose a different address."
This email address is not available for use as an Apple ID. You may already have an Apple ID associated with this address. Please try again or sign in using your existing Apple ID.

In order to fix the issue you can try below solutions:

Fix 1: Remove email from secondary
Please check if the email addresses you are using are secondary to some other emailId which is registered at Apple. In this case remove the email Id from secondary and then you should be  able to create a new icloud account with that email address.

Fix 2: delete from Apple server
·         Login to the  Apple ID management page: https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage. You would be prompted with same email id authorization. AT this point enter a different email address verify the same with inboxed code. Now, this other email address will become your Apple ID, which you don’t want to be. Below  steps are to change back to the Apple ID email address you were using in the first place. Click "Edit" at the right of the "Account" section. Remove your original Apple ID email address as an alternate "reachable at" address. Click done.

·         Click "Edit" at the right of the "Account" section again. Now Change your Apple ID back to your original email address that you want to be using. Enter the verification code from the email you get sent. Click done.
·         Check if the "different" email address you were using is showing up as a "Reachable At" email address.
If you get kicked out while doing above steps, just log back in and carry on where you left off.
Fix 3 : Try @google.com

In case the email Id you are using are from gmail domain you can use @googlemail.com and @gmail.com interchangeably for gmail accounts. So set the  apple id to the googlemail one. Hope this helps someone too.
