.Mac account name unavailable

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi all,



My trial for the .Mac account expires tomorrow but when I try to join and pay it tells me that my name is taken.



Is this because the membership application does not realise it's me an just see's that the name I want to continue using is taken?



I'm sure I've read about this issue before but my search of the forum didn't produce any results.



Any idea's...?



Thanks in advance



Sean.

    Go to System Prefernces > .Mac > Account tab > bottom-right, select account info > sign in > there may be an upgrade button there.

    Thanks Ireland



    Didn't work but I've managed to do it via the .mac home page using the 'join now' button.



    Cheers!
