Thinking of changing the email address that is used as your Apple ID?  Think again!
I updated mine the other day, and when I had to restore my phone from backups (Apple swapped a faulty 3yo iPhone 5 for free - Yeah!), it wouldn't work. The phone kept crashing part-way through the restore.
Long story short, after spending some time on the phone with a very friendly support person at Apple Support, it came down to the Apple ID. All the backups were with the old ID, and all the Apps were tied to the old ID, which was no longer valid.....
