Hi, and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you today.

Just to clarify, are you looking to create and use a new email address itself? If so, who's your current email provider, e.g. Gmail?

Please reply back to me using the box below.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

PS: Please do NOT accept any remote assistance offer (simply "X" it out) if it shows up on this page at any time; it's sent out automatically by our site, and not by me. We do not need to do a remote session for your issue; I'll reply back to you below now.

Expert:  Bryan replied 11 months ago.

Hmm, I see; so would you like to keep using the same Gmail address that you currently have, or do you want to set up a new Gmail address?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I want to use my current Gmail account. ..I don't know my I cloud password ***** I set up eon's ago ... since my email address is no good I cant get out of this tangle
Expert:  Bryan replied 11 months ago.

Oh, I see. Just to clarify, your iCloud email address is "*****@******.***"?

Expert:  Bryan replied 11 months ago.

Your iCloud account is separate from your old email account, even though they both use the same email address. So, we can go ahead and reset the password ***** your iCloud account now - could you please confirm what's your iCloud ID/email address?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

Your iCloud account is separate from your old email account, even though they both use the same email address. So, we can go ahead and reset the password ***** your iCloud account now. However, I'm unable to look up any iCloud account with the address***@******.*** - no such account exists. Could you please let me know if you are being prompted to enter the password ***** your iCloud account on the iPad now?

Expert:  Bryan replied 11 months ago.

Also, could you let me know if you have a separate APPLE ID/email address?

OK; I have now sent an iCloud password ***** email to***@******.*** - could you please open up your emails now, and click on the link provided in that email? This will allow you to set a new password ***** your iCloud account - which you may then use on your iPad thereafter.

Do keep me posted on the results; I'll be here.

Expert:  Bryan replied 11 months ago.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience here; Apple makes it quite hard for their users to reset their locked accounts as you can see. Hmm, let me think of something else; be right back.

Expert:  Bryan replied 11 months ago.

Sorry, I'm still not able to reset your password ***** way. Let me open your question back up to our other experts, who will be able to assist you further. Thank you for your continued patience.
