You can reset your apple id/email password ***** like this on another device:

Lets try the following steps to reset your apple id password, Go to the link below, enter your apple id.

https://iforgot.apple.com/

After entering your apple id, either answer your security questions and reset your password. Or , have an email sent to your email address. Then open your email and click the reset link inside that email to reset your password.

Once you have set a new password. Turn your device off, then back on and try to sign in with the apple id and the new password ***** just set.

THEN:

Activation Lock is tied to the Find my iPhone (or iPad) app on iOS. If you have your iPhone or iPad in your hands, this is the fast way to turn off Activation Lock.

You can also reset your iPhone to erase all content and settings. Do that, and you'll be asked to remove Find my iPhone — and Activation Lock — as part of the process.

Launch Settings from the Home screen.

Tap on iCloud.

Tap Find My iPhone.

Switch Find My iPhone to Off.

Enter your Apple ID password ***** confirm

Tap Turn Off.

You can do this from icloud as well.

Go to iCloud.com on your browser.

Click Find My iPhone on the iCloud website, from any web browser on your Mac or Windows PC.

Sign in to your iCloud account when prompted.

If you're not immediately taken to Find My iPhone, click on Find My iPhone from the Home menu.

Click on All Devices at the top of the Find My iPhone screen.

Click the device you'd like to erase.

Click Erase (device) on the upper right of the screen, beneath the picture of your device.

Click Erase and wait for confirmation that it's been erased.

Click on Remove from Account

Try these methods first and get back to me.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today.

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
