I have my young son ipad 2, he was using it 5 years ago, now he forget the passowrd, and I cant activate it, even he could not open the apple id (the email), because he is using it any more, how can I reactivate it?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

My son does not remember, but may be 3 years ago

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

I tried to connect it through itunes, but it keeps asking to insert the password

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

Can i get back the password ***** apple through other email or mobile number

Dear Pete,Your answer is just leading me to the Apple support, which is very well known to all, and I tried this method many times, but my ipad is still locked and needs reactivating.
I believe your web site is missleading and you should return the money back if this was your answer!!!!!!!!

There is only one method to recover the Apple device.

What is the exact error message that you are seeing?

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
