Customer Question
I need to reactivate...

I need to reactivate my ipad and forgot the password, I am the original owner.

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

I really can't remember, I had a password ***** down but when I tried it, it didn't work.

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

Nope

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

No, thank you

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
