Customer Question

Hi, I have an Ipad air. I do not remember my apple ID or Password. I don't remember answering the questions to have it reset. I have been to the Apple store and left with it working, but I still don't know the Id and password ***** answers to questions. I cant send texts or email. My out box is waiting to send but I keep getting asked the Id and password ***** I keep getting that I am locked out. It asks to send an email, but I have never used Icloud email so I have no idea how to get that email. Can I reset and start over with a new apple ID and password ***** answer the questions so I know what to answer when asked?

What's the email address it's saying to use to activate the ipad?

Can you go here and enter your email to reset it?

is the address. They ask security questions and I don't remember the answers. They send a password ***** that email which I can't use because I have never used that email and don't knw the password.

if you want to connect to theipad and can fix that way. That is OK with me
Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

remote support won't help if you don't know the login password.

If the password ***** is going to the icloud email account and you can't get passed the security question. You'll need to contact Apple directly to see if you can give them enough information for them to reset it for you.

There is no other way to get around this.

Cody, You really aren't helping. I have gotten that far on my own. I really don't think this is worth $45. I would like to thank you and get my money back. The $5 deposit is yours
Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

I will send in the request.
