HT1918 how can I change my rescue email account?

Currently it seems our rescue email account is my wife's work email which is difficult for us to access from anything other than our Mac.  I can access my work email on my phone so I would prefer that account as the rescue email.

  • HT1918 How can I change my rescue email. I am trying to change my email for my Apple account because I can no longer access the email on the account. My only email I use is my rescue email and it will not allow me to change my Apple ID email to my rescue

    How can I change my rescue email or get rid of it? I need to change my email under my apple ID to the email that is my rescue email. It won't allow me to have the same email. I only have one email address and can no longer access the email address under my apple ID

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    Once you have created a rescue address, you cannot delete it, nor can you change it to the same address as used by your ID. There are numerous providers you can get additional email addresses from, such as Hotmail, Yahoo, Google etc etc.

  • HT5312 how can i change my rescue email?

    How can iI change my rescue email? My original apple id email is no longer valid and I would like to change my apple id to what is currently my rescue email. I have a secondary email that I can change to my rescue email. However, because I could not designate my primary email as my apple id, my current secondary email is my apple id. Please help.

    Alt strategy -- 
    This is what I actually did when I needed to change my rescue email. However, it is clear that the above strategies would now work for me.
    I needed to change my rescue email b/c I wanted that email to be my primary email/appleID.  The rescue email and primary cannot be the same for some reason. When I needed to do it, I forgot the answer to one of my security questions so was forced to click "Send reset security info email to •••••@***.com." This sent an email to my rescue email address -- so if you cannot access your rescue, this alt strategy will not work.
    When I clicked the link sent, something went wrong and aple could not bring me to that page. However, when I looked back in the browser tab where I was managing my AppleID, the page/environment for "Password and security" changed. All that was there was something to click that said "Reset .....". This brought me to a page to change all 'password and security' related issues including my rescue email address.

    --> may have to go to rescue email address and follow instructions there and it may work
    --> could be you only have to renew the 'password and settings' page to see new option to click "Reset...."

    How can I change my rescue email??

    If you know the answers to your security questions, then from http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312 :
    Navigate to appleid.apple.com using your web browser.
    Click "Manage your account"
    When prompted, sign in using your Apple ID and password.
    Click Password & Security
    You'll be asked to answer 2 of your 3 security questions before you can make any modifications. If you are unable to remember your answers, you can choose to send an email to your rescue email to reset your security questions.
    After you've validated your identity by correctly answering your security questions, click Edit to the right of your rescue email address.
    Once you've finished editing your rescue email address, click the Save button directly below the email field.
    If you can't remember your answers then you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple in your country to get the questions reset before you can use the above steps to update your rescue email for potential future use.

    If all else fails:
      1. Go to: Apple Express Lane;
      2. Under Product Categories choose iTunes;
      3. Then choose iTunes Store;
      4. Then choose Account Management;
      5. Now choose iTunes Store Security and answer the bullet questions, then click
          Continue;
      6. Sign in with your Apple ID and press Continue;
      7. Under Contact Options fill out the information and advise iTunes that you would
          like your security/challenge questions reset;
      8. Click Send/Continue.
    You should get a response within 24 hours by email.
    In the event you are unsuccessful then contact AppleCare - Contacting Apple for support and service.
    Another user had success doing the following:
    I got some help from an apple assistant on the phone. It is kind of round about way to get in.
    Here is what he said to do and it is working for me...
      a. on the device that is asking you for the security questions go to "settings", > "store" >
          tap the Apple ID and choose view"Apple ID" and sign in.
      b. Tap on payment information and add a credit/debit card of your preference then select
          "done", in the upper right corner
      c. sign out and back into iTunes on the device by going to "settings"> "store" > tap the
          Apple ID and choose "sign-out" > Tap "sign -in" > "use existing Apple ID" and you
          should be asked to verify your security code for the credit /debit card and NOT the
          security questions.
      d. At this time you can remove the card by going back in to edit the payment info and
          selecting "none" as the card type then saving the changes by selecting "done". You
          should now be able to use your iTunes store credit without answering the security
          questions.
    It's working for me ...I just have to put in my 3 digit security pin from the credit card I am using.
    Good Luck friends!
