Customer Question
My iPhone keeps telling...

My iPhone keeps telling my I have the wrong password ***** I don't. It won't let me go back to even look at my settings.

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

Years ago.

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

I don't even know what that is

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

No. I just want my phone back!

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
