Customer Question
I have just received...

I have just received a message 'Could not activate phone". I don't remember my sign-in nor my password. How do I find those so that I can use my phone again?

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

I don't think I changed it at all since I bought it last Mother's Day.

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

No. how do I access that online account tool?

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?

No, thanks.
