Traveling with iPad, but...

Traveling with iPad, but don’t have needed password ********@******.***

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your Gmail account on any other devices?

No, only my ipad

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

I don’t want to reset password, as I’ve had to buy a new smart phone while traveling, and they need my original password

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No, just my original password ***** you

A bit of confusion..I have my iPad, but lost my Samsung smart phone, I bought a new Samsung smart phone yesterday, but to retrieve my contacts etc they need the pass word to my gmail account which is***@******.***. My iPad user name is***@******.***. That password ***** have, and opening code. Do you need these? What I need is the password ***** my Gmail email account.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

ok, so it is the gmail account you are trying to sign into.

And you do not have the password ***** the gmail account, is this correct?

They seem to need the original password. Will a new password ***** them access to all my information to install in the new phone?

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
