Customer Question
I got help yesterday...

I got help yesterday transferring my old info to a new phone - however, I don't remember my apple password ***** we could not complete - someone was to call me by 4:49 today to give me a website and code to reset my password ***** I have not heard from anyone. My case # *****

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

Can't remember it has been awhile. We tried a couple of passwords that I thought could be it - but they weren't. So until I can reset my password ***** phone will not work - except for me to receive calls.

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

No - the person helping me yesterday told me someone would call me back to give me the website and a code to use to reset.

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

Can't think of anything else. The young lady took my phone number and someone was to call me

Your Apple ID is normally your email address. You should be able to reset your password ***** a computer using the site: http://iforgot.apple.com/

enter your Apple ID and click Continue.

-Select Email authentication followed by Next.

Check your email and there should be a message from Apple with instructions on how to reset your password.

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.

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.

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).

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")

Once you have the ID and password, restart your Apple device and sign in.

If you still have concerns, don’t negatively rate my answer, just reply back and let me know. I'll be happy to advise you further. When finished, please give a positive rating so I can be credited for my assistance. You are judging my personal service only (not this website, the price, or your issue) and high ratings assure I remain in good standing.

Thanks and good luck,

John

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
