  • How do you sign on to IMessage when it won't let me sign in with my apple ID and my password

    How do you sign on to IMessage when it won't let me sign in with my apple ID or my password

    No.
    Purchases are tied to the iTunes account they were purchased with.
    You can add it to your iTunes library and authorize your computer with his iTunesID.

  • I just restored my ipod as a new ipod and it won't let me sign in with my apple ID and says that it has an error connecting to the server, when I am already connected to the wifi.

    I just restored my ipod as a new ipod. It will not let me sign in with my apple ID and says that it has a problem connecting with the server, even though I am already connected to the wifi.

    Yes, of course.   Did you set up with your Apple ID?    
    Reset the iPad to factory and set it up with your Apple ID and password.   You can still sync different apps, music and other stuff onto the iPad,  the devices need not mirror each other.
    I have an old wifi iPad, an iPod touch and a new iPad mini with cellular.   All on the same Apple ID and password, different content on some apps, same on others.

  • HT1695 i bought a used ipod touch and reset it to the factory settings via itunes and now i'm trying to set it up like new and it won't let me sign in with an apple id it says it can't connect to the server.  Other wireless devices are working HELP?!

    I am trying to set up  my daughters ipod touch after resetting it to factory settings.  So I am trying to sign in using an apple id.  It says won't connect to the servier, but I have other wireless devices connected, so I know my wi fi is working. What now? Thanks

    Return it and get a refund. Without the prior owner's Apple ID and password that device is useless. Find My iPhone Activation Lock- Removing a device from a previous owner’s account. You were screwed by the ignorance of the pawn shop owner.

  • The Facebook app won't let me sign on with my account. I can sign on to another account just fine. Will not let me sign on through Safari or Google either. When I put in email and password it goes right back to the log in page. Help?

    On my iPhone 4, the Facebook app won't let me sign on with my account. I can sign on to another account just fine. The first time I sign on with the FB app it goes to the news feed page, says loading, and then flipps between loading and connection error.  If I close out of that and try to sign in again it locks up on the logging in page.  From Safari or google it goes to the log in page, after entering my email and password it goes right back to the log in page.  I have tried resetting my phone, deleting and re-installing the app and everything else I can think of.  Since I can log onto another account on my phone it can't be the app, any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Sounds like a hard reset is in order...

  • Since upgrading to os x maverick, my FaceTime won't let me sign in and continues to prompt me to put in my iCloud password.

    Since upgrading to os x maverick, my FaceTime won't let me sign in and continues to prompt me to put in my iCloud password. It sometimes asks me to put it in 5-6 times and then it gives me an error saying that the program certification is revoked or expired. I live overseas and previously utilized FaceTime to talk to my girlfriend.

  • Reest my ipad and it won't let me sign in to my apple id. Saying that id is in use?

    Reest my ipad and it won't let me sign in to my apple id. Saying that id is in use?

    Check Settings>General>Date & Time>Set Automatically>On. Make sure that the time zone setting is also set correctly.
    If that didn't solve the problem, restart your iPad and try again. If that fails, reset your iPad and try again.
    Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

  • I can't backup my icloud on my ipad because icloud won't let me sign in with my new email address

    How can I backup my icloud files on my ipad and iphone when icloud won't allow me to login with my new email address when I try to initiate backup. My apple i.d.was successfully changed in April 2014 but some aspects of icloud don't seem to have accepted those changes.

    If you need to change the iCloud ID on it, you have to go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, provide the password for the old ID when prompted to turn off Find My iPhone, then sign back in with the ID you wish to use.  If you don't know the password for your old ID, or if it isn't accepted, go to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  Then edit the name of the account to change it back to your old email address.  You can now use your current password to turn off Find My iPhone on your device, even though it prompts you for the password for your old account ID. Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address and iCloud ID name back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign in with your current iCloud ID and password.

  • Icloud will not let me sign on with my apple id.

    I have downloaded the icloud control panel but it will not let me log in.

    Make sure you are signing in with an iCloud ID, not just an Apple ID.  You have to first create your iCloud account on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) running iOS 5 or higher, or on a Mac running OS X Lion (10.7.5) or higher.  After creating your account on one of these devices you will then be able to sign into the account using this ID on your PC.

  • Facetime won't let me sign in

    My friend tried to call me on Facetime, but the call kept failing.  I quit Facetime and then tried to login in again, but now it says "The server encounter an error processing registration," even though I'm not creating an account, I'm signing in to my current one.  Not only that, but I'm using the same computer that I created my account with and that I always use.  I have had nonstop problems with Facetime and I'm seriously considering moving back to Skype if Apple doesn't get its act together. 

    This could be a complicated problem to solve, as there are many possible causes for it. Test after taking each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Before proceeding, test on another network, if possible. That could be a public Wi-Fi hotspot, if your computer is portable, or a cellular network if you have a mobile device that can share its Internet connection. If you find that iMessage works on the other network, the problem is in your network or at your ISP, not in your computer.
    Step 1
    Check the status of the service. If the service is down, wait tor it to come back up. There may be a localized outage, even if the status indicator is green.
    Step 2
    Sign out of iMessage on all your Apple devices. Log out and log back in. Try again to sign in.
    Step 3
    Restart your router and your broadband device, if they're separate. You may have to skip this step if you don't control those devices.
    Step 4
    From the menu bar, select
               ▹ About This Mac
    Below the "OS X" legend in the window that opens, the OS version appears. Click the version line twice to display the serial number. If the number is missing or invalid according to this web form, take the machine to an Apple Store or other authorized service center to have the problem corrected.
    Step 5
    Take the steps suggested in this support article. If you don't understand some of the steps or can't carry them out, ask for guidance.
    Step 6
    From the menu bar, select
               ▹ System Preferences... ▹ Network
    If the preference pane is locked, click the lock icon in the lower left corner and enter your password to unlock it. Then click the Advanced button and select the Proxies tab. If the box marked SOCKS Proxy is checked, uncheck it. You don’t need to change any other settings in the window. Click OK and then Apply. Test.
    The result may be that you can't connect to the Internet at all. Revert the change if that happens, or if iMessage still doesn't work. Remember that you must Apply any changes you make in the preference pane before they take effect.
    Step 7
    Select from the menu bar
               ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Storage
    and click
              Block all sites from storing information on this computer
    Close the preference pane.
    Step 8
    Make sure you know the ID and password you use with iMessage. Launch the Keychain Access application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Keychain Access in the icon grid.
    Use the search box in the toolbar of the Keychain Access window to find and delete all items with "iMessage" or "com.apple.idms" in the name. Log out and log back in.
    Step 9
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    If iMessage worked in the guest account, stop here and post your results.
    Step 10
    Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you start up, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a Fusion Drive or a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. After testing, restart as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and test again.
    If iMessage worked in safe mode, but still doesn't work when you restart in "normal" mode, stop here and post your results.
    Step 11
    Reset the NVRAM.
    Step 12
    Reinstall OS X.
    Step 13
    If none of the above steps resolves the issue, make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or contact Apple Support.

  • New itouch: FaceTime won't let me sign in!

    I just got a new itouch for Christmas, and I absolutely cannot get FaceTime to work. I have tried everything. Everytime I try to sign in, it says that my password is wrong. I know that it is correct, because I checked it on other apps. I went ahead and changed my password. I have done this numerous times, but it still doesn't work. I also changed my DNS to Google's. I've reset my itouch a few times as well. I've read the troubleshooting forum on here, and I'm still stuck. Any suggestions?

    There's a ton of issues going on with the facetime servers...Not sure whats going on. My iphone works fine but my kid's new ipod won't facetime at all (using the SAME wifi network here at our home)! It's nuts! Apple tech said they're servers were over-taxed on Christmas day. It's two days later and still same problem. We can not log in to activate the facetime accnt. Not sure if i'm buying that since my iphone works facetime perfectly. Aren't they connecting to the SAME video chat servers to use facetime? sigh
    I'd give their tech support line a call. They NEED to know this is a wide spread problem and fix it asap. I'm calling them AGAIN today.
