I have managed to screw up my Id and wife’s id acounts! Need to straighten them out

Technician's Assistant: What kind of Apple device do you have? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

IPad and iPhone’s

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPad? What have you tried so far?

The iPad is under my wife’s account as is her iPhone but when put in your search it comes back no go!***@******.***

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

My iPhone is tied to my wife’s account through iCloud and none of my passwords work! I really won like to speak with someone rather than using my hunt and peck method

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
