Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

Unfortunately, only the previous owner can unlock the iPad. You will need to reach out to that person so they can unlock it for 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
