  • How do i delete an old account when i don't know the password or have access to the email?

    it keeps wanting to sign me back into my old iCloud address.. main problem is that the 'find my iPhone' app can't be deleted and changed to the new iCloud because I can't remember the password and the email it's linked to was hacked so I have no access and therefore can't reset my password!? Need to do it urgently now as it's been smashed and going off for repair and they won't repair/ replace it without that app deleted!

    If I'm understanding this correctly, you have a broken iPhone that needs repaired, however you need to disable Find My iPhone before the repair can be completed and you cannot remember the password to that account?
    First to try on your own, go to iforgot.apple.com.  Use the AppleID that was used to set up that iPhone or was signed into iCloud.  You will be given a choice of reset by email or security questions.  Since the email is out of the question, you'll choose security questions.
    If you cannot remember the answers, or more likely how you entered them as the answer are case sensitive, then you'll have to contact AppleCare.  They can attempt to verify the account with you, and if they can then send a reset password email to any email address you choose.  Just be aware that if you have to use this route, it will take a minimum of 24 hours for the email to arrive.  Make sure the email provider accepts email from @id.apple.com.
    If you cannot verify the account, then AppleCare can have FMiP removed from that device, but you will have to send in the purchase receipt for that device.  It has to be a valid receipt from a qualified reseller, so eBay sales receipts or hand written ones will not work.  That process can take up to 48 hours to complete as the FMiP team has to verify all the info.  If they can, then they will strip FMiP from the device and assign it to a different AppleID.

  • How do I delete my iCloud account from my iPad 2 when I don't know the password to that account?

    How do I delete my iCloud account from my iPad 2 when I don't know the password to that account?

    Try going 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 iDevice, even though it prompts you for the password for your old account ID. Then save any photo stream photos that you wish to keep to your camera roll.  When finished 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.

  • IOS 8 lockscreen keyboard does not let me input characters with accent marks. My password has an accent mark. I can't restore the device without unlocking it and turning off find my iPod. What can I even do here?

    I do have a third party keyboard installed (fleksy), and I removed english and emoji from the keyboards list in settings before rebooting the ipod. When it booted up, it asked for my device password with the default keyboard, but I can't type any letters with accent marks, so I can't enter the password. I figured I could fix this by restoring a backup and changing my password, but I can't restore a backup without turning off Find My iPod - which of course requires me to unlock the device with the device password, which I can't do. Am I stuck here? Is there anything at all that I can do?

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

  • Is there any way to turn off "Find my iPod" without unlocking the iPod?

    My cousin forgot her password to her iPod and she tried to restore the iPod but it said that it couldn't be restored because "Find my iPod" was on. Is there any way that you can turn off "Find my iPod" without unlocking her iPod.

    You can access iCloud.com on a computer to turn it off.

  • Cannot turn off find my ipod

    My passcode was changed and now forgotten. I did connect the Ipod to the computer I have synced to and connected to itunes, however; itunes says to turn off find my ipod. I went to icloud and erased this ipod so there is no device it recognizes. Itunes still tells me to turn off find my ipod and I can't since I cannot get into the ipod or its not recognized by icloud. What do I do now?

    Hello, radcami16.  
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.  
    I understand that your iPod is disabled and you are unable to turn off find my device.  I would recommend going through the steps in the article below.  
    Recovery mode
    If you've never synced your device with iTunes, or haven't set up Find My iPhone, you'll need to put your device in recovery mode. Then you'll restore your device as new or from a backup.
    Forgot passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled
    Cheers,

  • How can I delete my Icloud account when I don't know the password and no longer have the email address associated with it?

    How can I delete my Icloud account when I don't know the password and no longer have the email address associated with it?
    You need your password to delete it and I need the email address to reset the password.  I feel like I'm going in circles!!!  Please help!!!

    Go to https//appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Tap edit next to the primary email account, tap Edit, 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 shouldn't need to verify the old account).  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.

    If you have a rescue email address (which is not the same thing as an alternate email address) set up on your account then you can try going to https://appleid.apple.com/ and click 'Manage your Apple ID' on the right-hand side of that page and log into your account. Then click on 'Password and Security' on the left-hand side of that page and on the right-hand side you might see an option to send security question reset info to your rescue email address.
