Customer Question
Recently my wife passed...

Recently my wife passed away and I have inherited my wife's iPhone 6. Telephone #(###) ###-#### I have the password ***** I am asked for the "password ********@******.***". I do not know how to proceed to open and use the phone. Help, please. Bryan J. Cannon

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

I don't know. It was her phone and use, and she was elderly.

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

No.. How do I do that?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No, thank you, Pearl.

Mac Support Specialist: AnswersByEric, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

Ok, that may be the email address you used to create your Apple ID. Give me one moment, I want you to visit a page I will link you to, which will ask you your security questions so you can reset the password.

If we cannot get your password ***** we can reset the phone to brand new again so it can be used again.

Visit this link and put in the iCloud.com email address that is showing on the iPhone. Then choose to "reset password" and then choose "answer security questions." If that does not work for you, I will provide you instructions on resetting the phone.

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
