Is the iphone showing the apple id that it would like the password *****? When you say "I cannot get the apple ID, and password ***** stick", I am not sure if that means there is a previous users apple id stuck on the iphone or if you are just trying to enter your apple id and password ***** its just not working.

If its your apple id only that is not working then you can go to https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid and type in your Apple ID and continue. Apple will then provide you with an option to reset your password ***** by email, security questions, text message, etc.

Then once you have your password ***** you can try and sign in on the iphone. If it does not work right away on the iphone, restart your iphone and make sure you are connected to your wifi and try again.

If the ipad is showing someone elses apple ID and password, then there is no way to bypass this due to apples hardcore security. The only way would be to contact the previous owner and have them provide you the apple id and password ***** or

If the previous owner isn't present, contact them and ask them to follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to iCloud.com with their Apple ID.
  2. Go to Find My iPhone.
  3. Click All Devices at the top of the screen.
  4. Select the device that you want to remove from iCloud.
  5. If necessary, click Erase [device].
  6. Click Remove from Account.

After the previous owner removes the device from their account, turn off the device and then turn it back on to begin the setup process.

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
