Customer Question
My imac will not...

My imac will not let me change my apple id in any way. How can I delete it all if it won't let me change my id, or tells my my apple id is already taken?

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

I don't think I have, since the imac wouldn't let me!

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

Yes

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

I have 4 macs and 2 iphones. I want to reset all to have the same apple id.

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
