I'm sorry but what is an apple ID?
Mac Support Specialist: Karthik, Mac Enthusiast replied 2 months ago

Your Apple ID is normally your email address which is associated with apple.

Please cancel this request. I thought I had already paid $40 and I'm not paying another $39. All I need was to reset my Apple iphone password. I was unaware that it would cost anything.
Mac Support Specialist: Karthik, Mac Enthusiast replied 2 months ago

Offers you see for Remote Assistance or Phone Calls are not me recommending them, it is this website. I am more than happy to accept your request for one, but you don't have to.

I don't understand why it takes so long to just get a new password. My friends have told me that it was so easy...just call Apple and they will rest a password.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Correction "reset."

Hi, my name is***** will further assist you if you would like to continue.

First, i will explain. Your apple id is your email that you are using for your apple id to log into things like itunes, iphones etc.

This must be done by resetting online. Getting in will depend on what back up methods you put in place. If you have a phone number

attached, a back up email we can send the link too, etc.

What type of device do you normally use your email/apple id on?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I use an MAC computer for my email. And, my Apple id is***@******.***
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 months ago

Ok, try this for me please. You will need to reset that password *****

Getting in will depend on how you set up your apple id recovery:
https://appleid.apple.com/#!&page=signin
Go to your Apple ID account page and click "Forgot Apple ID or password." If asked to confirm your phone number, use steps for two-factor authentication instead.
Enter your Apple ID. Did you forget your Apple ID?
Select the option to reset your password, then choose Continue.
Choose how to reset your password:
To answer your security questions, select "Answer security questions" and follow the rest of the steps.
To get email instead, select "Get an email." To reset your password, use the email that we send to your primary or rescue email address. Didn't get the email?
If asked for a Recovery Key, use the steps for two-factor authentication or two-step verification instead.

Try those steps to recover the password ***** let me know the results. If we need further instructions, just let me know either way.

We will try another way.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know. Reply with any and all errors or concerns referring to your technical issue.

Thank you,

~Franklin

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
