If you go to you should be able to retrieve your iTunes information.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions. Kind regards,

Your answer didn't help, I'd already tried there. The problem is I can't remember the user name/password. That's okay, though, I can live without iTunes. Thanks anyway. Of course I'll click the Accept button for payment.

Hello Valerie,

I appreciate the accept, but would like to try and help you get back into iTunes still.

When you went to, there is a message on the screen that says "Forget your Apple ID?" Did you click on this and fill out the form that asks for your name and e-mail address? How did that work for you?

We'll get this figured out. :-)

Kind regards,
