My grandson must have entered his information. I can't get in.
Is it possible to call or text him to recover the information he entered. Do you also have another email address that you can use to set up an apple ID?
I can't reach him and I don't have another email address.
I understand. In your unique situation, you have 2 options. Option 1: Create a new free gmail email address to use for iTunes Or Option 2: You can wait until you can get in touch with your grandson. It even sounds like he entered his email address as the recovery email which is probably why you are not getting the password XXXXX link
