Customer Question

The restrictions passcode got changed on my sons iPhone and I tried going back to factory start to reset but his find my iPhone was enabled and now the iCloud password ***** ***** working. I cannot remember the password ***** used and neither can my son. How can I set this phone up? Change the password?

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

December is when he got this phone.

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

I tried using iTunes but because I could not remember the password ***** my iPhone would not turn off. So I did the trouble shooting holding down home button and off button. I thought that we would be able to get in this way but still having issues.

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

Should I unplug the iPhone from my computer?

I had taken it back to factory setting and so it is trying to set up the screen it is on is iCloud ID and password. I can't get past this page.
Mac Support Specialist: Karthik, Mac Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

iWhen I tried to reset the iCloud ID, I am getting a message stating "You can now reset your password ***** your iPhone. A message with instructions has been sent to ShaneGuichard’s iPhone (iPhone SE)". But there is no way you can get any instruction to your iPhone, In this case we can try with alternate way to recovery the ID.

I am really sorry to say this, even that doesn't work because when I tried to use the alternate way to recover, I am getting an message stating When your account is ready for recovery, we will send instructions to +1(###) ###-#### Status information will be available in 4 days. In this case instead of waiting for 4 days, What I suggest you is, You can reach Apple Account Security team over the phone at 1-***-***-**** /1-***-***-****. They are available from 7AM to 10PM CST 7 days a week.

IMPORTANT: After reach apple and if get an automated system. Just say "iTunes" and then say "Account" for Account Security. Then, say "Yes" when the system asks if you would like to be transferred to an advisor again say "Yes".

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
