I have already tried this three times and my iMac on email in the apple support manage my account does change my password XXXXX accepts another new password XXXXX my iphone still will not accept any of these passwords so do I reset my phone or what?
Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
yes it is looking this way unfortunatly

Yuo will need to hard reset though you will lose your data

To do this

Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.

Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart.

You may let go when you see the silver Apple logo.

This will than complete the process but remember, ALL Data will be removed

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
