I can not get...

I can not get into my apple IPad because my user name and password *****'t what I have written down right now. I apparently changed it and did not record it.

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

I can't recall.

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

I have no idea what or where that is.

It is either: [email protected] or***@******.*** This is the issue I am having as it won't take either of them with my password, that I know is the last one I used.
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

ok let me try some things one moment.

Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

ok it looks like there was an apple id for***@******.*** which I sent an email to whatever the email is r•••••@w•••••.com I am assuming its the same email but not sure. Do you have access to this email and what is the full email of r•••••@w•••••.com. If not check all your emails and see if you have an email from apple regarding a password ***** If not in your inbox check your spam/junk folders.

plus the ipad should show a hint on what the apple id is such looking like r•••••@w•••••.com

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

it should be on the activation lock screen where it shows the r•••••@w•••••.com and wants the password. Are you sure it is the r•••••@w•••••.com that it is locked with or does it not show that. Either way if you think you know what the email is for r•••••@w•••••.com then check that email for the apple reset password *****

I have tried to reset via the links and none of them have worked. it appears my user ID:***@******.*** is correct but I can't get it to reset my password.
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

Do you mean the mean the link inside the apple email allows you to reset your password ***** it says its complete and done. But then you try and use the apple id and new password ***** it doesn't work still?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No. When I try to use the Reset link it gives me this error:
"Cannot Verify Account"
"We apologize but we are unable to verify your account information online". Then when I try to create a new account using:***@******.*** it tells me this e-mail is not available to use a different e-mail address.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Are you still working on this issue?
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

The thing is we need to be very precise on what the actual Apple id even is on the ipad while its locked. No matter which apple id you want to use you will never get back into the ipad. So even if its an old or unwanted apple id we have to match that apple id and reset the password. So since nothing is working and you mentioned that the ipad only shows the apple id of r•••••@w•••••.com then maybe it is not really the correct apple id we are using.

My daughter just suggested maybe we try to set her up a login on my IPAD. Would this work so I can get it to open at least?
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

I wish it were that easy. Thats the problem. Apple's security locks the the device and you can not use it for any other apple id account until it is unlocked with the apple id that it currently wants. It basically becomes an expensive paper weight until then

there is not a "Backdoor" fix to reset it and start over?
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

If it was just a passcode issue yes, there is a backdoor, for a activation lock like your seeing with the apple id and password, no there is no bypass on your end. The final resort would be to contact apple and provide them proof of purchase and they can unlock it for you but if you are no the original owner plus cant provide the information they can not do it.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I understand but that needs to be changed so it can be unlocked when this type of issue occurs or at least let you see the ID name in full............
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

I know I agree. But here is AppleCare's phone number 800–692–775. Explain to them that you can not reset your password ***** to all that you have tried which is not your fault. Explain that you need them to unlock and you can provide them the original purchase information. I know its not what you want to here but its the truth.

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
