iCloud is set up with the 1123 and my store is set up with 38
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I have already done this. I will try again
Mac Support Specialist: AnswersByEric, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

After you reset the password ***** the email, and you enable the account again, you may want to do a reset of the iPad and just set it up again with ONE and only one account on it. If you have any follow up questions, please feel free to reply. Otherwise, please do not forget to rate my service to you at the top of the page, hopefully I have earned a 5-Star Rating :)

When I try to update apps, it keeps defaulting back to my old iTunes using waynegentry38
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I don’t know that password ***** I have changed it so many times over last month trying to get it fixed. I have ran out of passwords.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I went to settings to change to my 1123 email
Mac Support Specialist: AnswersByEric, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

Ok, we need to fix that. Give me one moment to give you the directions.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did that already
Mac Support Specialist: AnswersByEric, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

Please try it again, if it does not work, then we need to do a full reset of the phone and have you set it up again with the account you want to use.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Did it agin. Still the same
Mac Support Specialist: AnswersByEric, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

Ok, let's go with a full reset then. This will put the phone back like it was brand new again. Once you sign in with an Apple ID, whatever was attached to that ID will resync to 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
