Customer Question
Hello. my name is...

Hello. my name is Judy. I turned on my ipad mini and it said Activation Lock. When I put in my apple ID and Password ***** said it is not the right one. I bought the Ipad new so there should be no previous owner. I have never changed my ID or password. I have tried it many times and still will not work.

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

Never changed it since it was new

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

I am not sure how that works.

Technician's Assistant: Happy to help. Want a weekly JustAnswer email to help with other issues? If so, what's your email address? And if you'd still like to talk to the Mac Expert, I'll connect you shortly.

Customer:***@******.***. Thanks I will try the online account reset tool.

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

No thanks

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
