Hi there, It seems the issue was still pending and it was not yet resolved. In this case let me help you fixing this issue right away. Could you please tell me whether do you have any computer like window 10/8/7? So that we can try to create new apple ID in that different device.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
