Customer Question
I'm trying to set...

I'm trying to set up my iPad but I cannot remember my apple ID password, nor can i remember the password ***** the email linked to my apple ID. I had it written down somewhere but I've moved and I can't find the page anywhere and my memory just isn't serving me well....

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

Probably a year or so ago?

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

No, I don't think so

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

No, thats everything thanks

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
