It seems like you are locked out of the Apple ID without the password. You can reset the password ***** the Apple account and use it for your new iPad.

Please follow this steps and it will help you in resetting the password 1. You should be able to reset your password ***** the site: http://iforgot.apple.com/2. Enter your Apple ID and click Continue.3. Select Email authentication followed by Next.4. Check your email and there should be a message from Apple with instructions on how to reset your password.5. If you can’t use your email address, another option you have available is to reset your password ***** answering the security questions you created when you setup your account.6. Enter your Apple ID and click Continue.-Select Answer security questions and click Continue.-Set the birthday you used for the account and clicking Continue.- Answer the security questions you picked when you set the account up.7. If you answer these successfully, you should be able to reset your password ***** access your AppleID again.* IF YOU FORGOT THE APPLE ID ITSELF: If you go to the above mentioned site you will see an option in the lower, middle of the page labeled “Forgot your Apple ID?”. If you click this, it will ask for some rather simple information that you should know as the owner of the account ( first name, last name, current email address plus the ability to enter additional email addresses if it has changed since you created the Apple ID).8. Once you have the Apple ID and have reset the password, test out that it is working properly by signing into the Apple ID management site:https://appleid.apple.com/ (under "Manage Your Apple account")9. Once you have the ID and password, restart your iPhone and sign in.If that doesn't work or if any other steps is unclear please let me know, So that we can try some other alternate solution. Thank you

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
