I accidentally triggered the Activation Lock on my Iphone 6.

Customer Question
I accidentally triggered the...

I accidentally triggered the Activation Lock on my Iphone 6. I am the original user but I cannot find the ID or password ***** were used to set up my phone. It was purchased through AT&T. Is there anyway to reset the Apple ID and password

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

I think changed it a few years ago, when I signed up to get some apps from the Apple Store.

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

No I have not. What is the address to go to?

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?

I think that is all
