My wife is in Ontario with my Ipad and I have her Ipad Mini…

My wife is in...

My wife is in Ontario with my Ipad and I have her Ipad Mini here. I changed
the apple Id on her ipad to my name and can't get it changed back to her name so we can facetime or send messages.

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

I logged in maybe an hour ago and entered my apple id as***@******.***, changed password ***** send a message from the ipad mini to myself and got it. I need to change it to***@******.*** with a new password.

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

Yes i can't get to appleid.apple.com as it says it's not available.

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

No not really

Hi,

Thanks for using JustAnswer. I am happy to assist you with this issue. On the ipad, click on setting. In the next screen that opens, click on the circle where the name and Apple ID is listed in the left column. Then, in the right column, at the bottom, click log out. Then you can log in under the other Apple ID

Please reply and let me know if that works for you or if you have any questions. Then we can go to the next step if needed.

Regards,

Sheri-Expert

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
