Cannot change iCloud ID in iOS8 - Can't Sign Out without turning off Find My iPad - which needs the password for the old iCloud ID

I have read the older responses to questions re how to change the iCloud account from an old ID/email address (OLD ID) - to a new ID/email address (CURRENT ID).  They all say go to Settings>iCloud - and Delete the iCloud account.  In iOS 8 - there is no Delete - but there is a Sign Out.  BUT - when I choose the Sign Out it shows a pop-up with the OLD iCloud ID - saying I must first sign IN to iCloud and enter a Password Required to turn off the Find My iPad feature.
I have tried using the password I remember as being correct for the OLD iCloud ID.  Doesn't work.
I have tried using the password for the CURRENT ID - even though the pop-up has the OLD ID displayed.  Doesn't work.
I'm out of ideas - except Reset??
Should I Reset All Settings? 

I finally found a work-around in another thread on this Using iPad community.  Basically, I had to first make sure that the Messages and Facetime were associated with the CURRENT/NEW ID.  (I could do this by simply erasing the OLD ID and typing in the new - in General>Messages and General>Facetime.  I then used by PC to change my Apple ID back to the OLD ID/EMAIL - but leave the new password alone. 
I then went back to Settings>iCloud - clicked on Sign Out.  When it asked me to log on -- with the OLD ID/EMAIL -- to turn off the Find My Phone - I did so using the Password that was originally used with the CURRENT/NEW ID.  This worked.  So I finally was able to close out of the iCloud account that used the OLD ID/EMAIL.
I then went back on my PC to change my Apple ID back to the CURRENT/NEW ID/EMAIL.
I then went back to the iPad Settings>iCloud - and signed on using the CURRENT/NEW ID/EMAIL.
So everything is OK now.
WHEW!!!
Not sure why this has to be so difficult.  But thanks everyone for your suggestions.

  • My Outlook/iCloud calendar invites to others appear to work on my end and sync with my PC and mobile, but when other people "accept" the invite, it will not populate/add in to their calendar. How can i fix this without turning off iCloud?

    My Outlook/iCloud calendar invites to others appear to work on my end and sync with my PC and mobile, but when other people "accept" the invite, it will not populate/add in to their calendar. How can I fix this without turning off iCloud?
    I am at a new office that uses Outlook (not Outlook Exchange) which does not sync with my mobile... I just got iCloud set up on my PC to sync my contacts, calendar, reminders, etc... The sync worked (not without flaws, but the other issues seem solvable... I think), so that i can now see all my appointments on both my phone and on my PC. The problem I am having is that iCloud moved all of my calendar items from Outlook into iCloud calendar and now when I send out meeting/calendar invites the recipients may accept them, but the meeting does not get added to their calendar. This is a huge problem and may mean that i need to turn off iCloud.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?
    Thanks!

    I am replying to my own post here as I seem to have fixed the problem.
    I do have some calendars that are shared. Some of those are shared with users who have time zone support turned on. So i activated time zone support on my iphone, then deleted my icloud subscription. I then signed in to icloud again and voila... problem solved.
    It is a weird one as the other calendar views were always fine and when you opened an event that appeared in the wrong day (on list view), the correct date of the event was shown in the information...
    one more bug in a complicated system I guess

  • How can i turn off Find My iPad without using the iPad?

    My swipe screen has stopped working completely on my iPad. Very disappointing as it is only 18 months old and has been well looked after! I have tried holding down the off/on button and menu button to reboot but this doesn't work. I have now logged the fault with Apple and have an appointment to see someone in the support team this Monday. However, I wanted to try one more thing. I want to restore to factory settings as I've read that this could resolve the problem. When I plug it in to iTunes and try to restore iPad i get a warning message telling me I need to go to iCloud settings on my iPad and turn off Find My iPad before restoring. As I cannot use the iPad I cant do it from there. Is there another way? Please help me, I want to weep!

    FORCE IPAD INTO RECOVERY MODE (this will disable Find My iPhone)
    1. Turn off iPad
    2. Turn on computer and launch iTunes (make sure you have the latest version of iTune)
    3. Plug USB cable into computer's USB port
    4. Hold Home button down and plug the other end of cable into docking port.
    DO NOT RELEASE BUTTON until you see picture of iTunes and plug
    5. Release Home button.
    ON COMPUTER
    6. iTunes has detected iPad in recovery mode. You must restore this iPad before it can be used with iTunes.
    7. Select "Restore iPad"...
    Note:
    1. Data will be lost if you do not have backup
    2. You must follow step 1 to step 4 VERY CLOSELY.
    3. Repeat the process if necessary.

  • HT201210 cant restore my ipad from itunes after updating latest ios.  message tells me to turn off 'find my ipad' from my ipad, but I can't because the set up is not complete without the restore.  What do I do?

    I don't know if I'm repeating my question. I can't restore my ipad after updating to latest ios. The battery went low, I had to eject and plug in to charge.  The set up will not complete without resoring from icloud or itunes (i backed up to computer using itunes) or setting up the ipad as a New ipad.  I want to restore all my stuff but the message I get in itune says "Find my ipad must be turned off before 'ipad' can be restored".  Go to icloud settings on your ipad and turn off Find My iPad before restoring your iPad.".  I cant' get to this setting on my ipad because the set up is not complete!!!  I'm stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm afraid if I set up the ipad as new it will backup the new ipad over my previous backup and then I will loose all my photos, songs, aps, notes,......

    I have the same problem and we can't simply just restore from the backup. It says that I have to set up my iPad through restoring. So I tried restoring it in iTunes but it won't restore until I have to turn off this **** "Find My iPad" crap but I couldn't because the set up's not complete and it won't let me go to my settings unless I set it up. So basically it's asking me to go to my settings but before I could go to it I have to restore, and in order to restore I have to go to settings. Get where I'm at?
    Please, Apple Tech people! Help this 14 year old girl on her period, PMS-ing, thinking about how I want  to strangle however made this mistake of a set up, updating her iPad in 3 am in the morning cursing the day she even thought of updating. I seriously need to get out of this loophole. I don't want to use my other iPad that only has 16GB. I just wanted the pretty graphics I saw in my parent's iPad airs, I don't ask for anything more :''''(

    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just cancelling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.

  • When I am attempting to reset my password that has been forgotten through a computer restore, iTunes gives me a prompt to turn off Find my iPad in iCloud settings. This is not possible, as my iPad mini is locked and settings are unaccessible.

    When attempting to reset my iPad mini password that has been forgotten, I am unable to restore my device due to an error message stating that I "Need to turn off Find My iPad in iCloud settings on my iPad mini". This is not possible, as I have forgotten the password and can not open the device.

  • How to turn off Find My iPad and delete iCloud Lock on iOS 7.1.1

    How do I unlock Find My iPad or iCloud lock with out a password on iPad 2, 3, 4.  I tried once on one iPad starting from iCloud, type oooooooo, the click OK and cancel.  Then I went back to delete the word, "iCloud"  click DONE and OK.  Find My iPad wasn't deleted this time.  I think the idea is to make sure Find My iPad is off.  Then I can delete the LOCK or account that came with the device. HELP!

    Thanks for your attention.  The account's owner is unknown.
    I didn't put in detailed information.
    Believe it or not, I was able to remove iCloud lock on an iPad by hitting 8 zeros as a password (since I didn't have one)  and made sure the Find My iPad was off.  That is called a bypass.
    Needless to explain much, I am more looking for a solution to turn off Find My iPad on another iPad and I have not been successful.
    I looked up many clips on YouTube.  I wonder that Apple has updated terms and conditions with a more secured feature on iCloud.
