Can't get an Apple ID

by charlibob / May 27, 2013 6:46 AM PDT

I can successfully get through the process of creating an ID right up to the very end. When I click on the final box, I get the message that my session has time out, and that there is a problem with the Apple Store. This has happened repeatedly over numerous tries and several days.

I am able to use iTunes OK, but I would like to be able to turn on Genius.

Any Ideas?
