Customer Question
My I pad...

My I pad is lost or stolen. I cannot remember th password ***** it and want to use the find my IPad app from my husband's IPad. Is there anyway I can get a new password ***** my IPad remotely?

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

To my best recollection, I have not recently. My email address is Courtney *****@******.***. I am using my husband's IPad now and was able to locate it , but not mine. I have tried my Istore password, but it did not work. It is possible I set up my Apple ID under our former carrier, bay broadband and I tried it as well.

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

How do I do that?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

If that can be done, that's great! Please connect me and 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
