Customer Question
I got a new...

I got a new apple watch. Before I set up, I want to disconnect my phone from my husband's icloud. So then, my phone and my watch will backup to my icloud.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Apple Watch?

It's new today and I haven't yet done anything to it, so I don't know. My phone was just updated last week.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Apple Watch? What have you tried so far?

I feel like I'm getting robo answers. Are you a real, in time person?

Technician's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the Mac Expert more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes. After I set up my own icloud, can I transfer settings, contacts, apps from my computer backup?

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
