Besides the iphone, do you have a mac or a windows pc that you have ever connected your iphone to, or accessed your icloud or apple account from?

WINDOWS
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Allright.. And do you have itunes on that windows computer?

Or, had you accessed your icloud account or apple id at any point on that windows computer?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
NO APPLE ON HERE
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Allright, It may be simpler and easier if I connect to your windows computer via a screen sharing session. So that we can speak in live chat and so I can try to help you reset your apple id / icloud password ***** screen directly.

Ill send that offer to you now, if you reject the offer then we can try our best to continue via written support alone.

ARE YOU THERE
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

I am here.

Question, even though you dont have the old email address anymore.. Do you know for certain the exact email address that used to be your icloud id / apple id ?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
IT WAS***@******.***
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Allright, go to this page

https://iforgot.apple.com/

Enter the full email address and click continue, and then try answering your security questions.. If you can answer them, then you can reset the password.

After you reset the password, you should consider updating or changing your email for your apple id.. But first, lets just focus on resetting the password.

let me know if you get stuck or run into any issues.

it says my security question is wrong its my birthday
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Maybe you used numerical numbers.. or maybe you spelled out the month.. If you try again, it should give you a different security question.

It usually rotates 3 questions..

Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Try with your computer instead.. Go to this link

https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid

Enter the full email address from your previous apple id.. And then try to answer your security questions..

let me know if you are able to get that far, or if you are able to answer your security questions or not, thank you.

it will not let me inter my birthday it says its wrong
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
confused been working on this for 3 weeks
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

So you cant even get to your security questions.. Youre getting stuck on the birthday section before the security questions?

And Im guessing you dont have access to the insightbb email address anymore?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Is it possible the birthday is ***** to your husbands.. Can you try that instead?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
my husband died 7 years ago my mom is on my account but different phone ect
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it keeps asking her every now and then for her i cloud she dont remember nothing
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Ok, if her birthday isnt being taken.. Then she should try her husbands birthday.. And if it wont take that, then try your birthday..

normally, it would be the persons birthday who started the account, but sometimes people put their spouses or childrens birthdays instead...

were do i type that apt you want me to go
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
facebook or what
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Its your apple id you are trying to reset, yes?

So this is the page we need to focus on.. https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid

Enter the old and correct apple id email address, click continue, click answer security questions.

And then try different birthdays till you get it right.. Hopefully, you can get to the security questions after the birthday, and reset the password.

Its probably easier to do so from the computer..

That way you have a larger view of what you are doing...

i typed what you said and it took me to a sight asking for id i typed***@******.*** and it wont let me inter birthday it seems locked
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
what if i deleted my i cloud and apple id will i lose anything on my phone just start over
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

It doesnt seem locked.. Its still asking for a birthday in month, day, year format.

Now, as far as icloud and apple id.. The issue is, the apple id acts like an antitheft measure..

If you cant sign into your apple id, you could get locked out of the phone.. And its possible you could lose all your contacts, apps, purchased music, etc..

Maybe its best if I connect to your pc and try to help you with this on screen?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how do i do that
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Ive sent you the screen sharing offer again.. After you accept it, I will send you some short connection steps to follow on your pc.. And then we will be connected and can work on this on the same screen.

Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

PC = personal computer. Its just another term for computer.

Do you have a Windows Computer, with windows on it?

Or is it an apple computer, or Mac ?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
windows 8
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 1 year ago

Excellent, in that case if you would like me to connect and share your screen and help you directly with the apple id issue.

You would need to click and approved the screen sharing offer I have sent you. Then, I will send you the connection steps.
