Martha, if you created this Apple ID recently and even got as far as verifying it by email then it sounds to me that the password XXXXX be the only hurdle for you to clear in order to use this ID again. Do you remember which email address you used to create the account?

The same one I have provided you with. The problem is that I can remember or am unclear what I was doing because I thought I was trying to get my ID. I am pretty sure of my password... Not sure of really anything. Can we just start with a new ID and password ?

For security reasons, I can not see your email address.

However, the primary email address you use when registering for an ID is ALWAYS your Apple ID. So if you are certain of the email address then the password XXXXX XXXXX you need.

We can work on that OR you can create a new Apple ID - However, you would have to use a different email address in that case. Would you still like to create a new Apple ID?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No I don't need to create a new apple ID. I thought I entered something other than my email address in the Apple ID field when I set up my account. I guess the problem lies in the password XXXXX Can you reset my password XXXXX email it to me ? Or tell me how to do it ? Once I have finished this can I log in to order itune songs ?

If you attempted to enter something other than an email address when initially registering it should have alerted you to the issue.

Apple has a specific process for resetting your password, and you should be able to reset your password XXXXX the site: http://iforgot.apple.com/

Enter the email address you used to register when asked for your Apple ID and click Next. Then you can choose Email authentication or to answer security questions in order to reset the password.

Once you have the Apple ID and have reset the password, just test that it is working properly by signing into the Apple ID management site:
https://appleid.apple.com/ (Click "Manage Your Apple ID")

Once you see that it is working, you can sign into iTunes to purchase songs.
