Which model of iPhone is this ?

It's an iMAc

This question is landed on Smartphone category. I will now move this question to Mac category.

Have you used Mobile Me in the past ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

We bought it with the computer but really never used it.

What version of Mac OS X are you using ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

snow leopard

In your Mac, goto Macintosh HD/youruserhome/Library/Caches folder and trash all files in there

Then goto Macintosh HD//Users/youruserhome/Library/Preferences/ folder and trash the following files

com.apple.DotMacSync.plist
com.apple.internetconfigpriv.plist


Then goto System Preferences. If you can see Mobile Me (or iCloud) in there, open it up. In the Account section, try to Sign Out or enter any invalid acoc**t name and password XXXXX there. It will show some error. Ignore it. Restart your Mac.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting. Don't Rate my answer until you are satisfied.

how do I get to Maacintosh Hd/youruserhome/library

Macintosh HD is your hard disk's name. You can access it from desktop or from Finder. It may have another name like Mac HD, My HD, Disk etc

Users, Library, Preferences etc are the folders inside the Macintosh HD

OK. Getting there. How do I trash the file?

Select them and press Command + delete button or just drag them to the trash icon in the dock.

OK. I don't see com.apple.DotMacSync.plist but the other one is there. Is that ok.

Its OK
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

ok, I have done it. I can't immediately tell if it worked, because the message seemed to come up at random times so I don't know how to make it happen. I have to leave now. Can I get in touch with you later for feedback?

Sure. Add a bookmark of this page, so you can get back to me later
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Done & thanks in advance ( I hope)
