Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

You will need access to the email you started the id with on your ipad.

If you see a remote support request, please do not accept until we discuss further. It is automated and we cannot

remote into the ipad. We need that working first.

ARe you trying to reset your password, is this what you mean by locked. ?

Okay, here is additional info. it asks me to unlock my Apple ID and to do that i need to send an email or do the question, I sent the email and when I go to my mail it says "cannot get mail" so I can't get it without unlocking it. and I don't remeber the answer to my security question
Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

That is okay. We need 2 things. your ipad and a computer.

The code is sent. You need a computer to log into your email it sent the code to. Or even your phone will show the email

if you have it set up there? We need access to that email first. Then pull the code.

Can you get into the email from another device?

I have not tried yet. I will do that right now
Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

Keep me updated and let me know the results.

When I try on other devices it does not let me login, it says "your Apple ID is locked"
Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

I do not know what you are logging into?

You need a computer to get to your email only first. Then find the code they sent.

What do you mean other devices?

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

Every time you try to access it? It makes it worse. Please stop until we can get to your email from a browser or email application on

a computer. It may have locked you out by now.
