I have a problem. My Apple ID is not my icloud email address my Apple ID is my msn account, but I need to reset the password for my icloud email because I can't remember what it is. How do I do that?

I have a problem. My Apple ID is not my iCloud email, my msn is my Apple ID, but I need to reset the password for my icloud email address because I can't remember what it is. How can do I reset my iCloud emaill password when it's not my Apple ID??

Your iCloud and @icloud.com login ID is an Apple ID. Go to http://appleid.apple.com and sign in with the ID you use to sign into iCloud (you can check this by going to http://www.icloud.com and signing in there).
Click 'Password & Security' in the sidebar and you will be able to change the password.
HOWEVER
Before you do this you must turn off 'Find My iPhone/iPad/iMac' if you have it enabled on any of your devices, otherwise you will land yourself in difficulties.

  • Apple ID issues? i think i have two accounts but i cannot find out the password for the one that controols my apps!? please help!

    I think I have two apple ID accounts.
    The account I am using right now is Alexiaann22. Im like 99.9999% possitive that before this was my origonal account(rosepetttals).
    When I am buying an app in the app store the apple id is already there and all you have to do is change the password. But the apple ID thaat is there is the Rosepetttals.
    I am no longer using that email so I cannot get the password sent to it. I also cannot retrieve the password for rosepetttals because it says that the birthday I am entering is incorrect. but im pretty sure I would know my own birthday.
    I know its alittle confusing but I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks you! 

    I am having this same issue, please help asap... I cannot listen to half of my music library and have never encountered this issue before.

    You need to either reset the rescue email address's password(check the site's help for instructions) or ask Apple to reset your security questions; ways of contacting them include clicking here and picking a method for your country, phoning AppleCare and asking for the Account Security team, and filling out and submitting this form.

  • My 3G unlocked iPhone is not syncing mail or contacts from my mac book pro, using Lion. I am able to get a calendars and music, only. I get the message that I need to reset the password which I have done 3x's on the phone and on the Apple server.

    Good to know that, but what can I do to get the mail and contacts downloaded from Icloud onto my Iphone?  I am told that the password needs to be reset and I have erased and reset it 3x's already? Should I Restore All Settings or Restore Network Settings or will that result in a situation where I have to have it re-unlocked again? GRACIAS!

  • I keep getting a message "The MobileMe IMAP server ... rejected the password for ...."  I can use that password when I go to iCloud, but my e-mails won't download to my computer.  What's the mix-up?

    I keep getting a message "The MobileMe IMAP server ... rejected the password for ...."  I can use that password when I go to iCloud (and to this discussion), but my e-mails won't download to my computer.  What's the mix-up?

    If the setting is greyed out perhaps you have restrictions enabled that would prevent someone from changing accounts. Settings>General>Restrictions>Allow Changes>Accounts.

  • How do i reset the password for secure photo video by Easy to Use Apps?

    I have recently upgraded to the newer versions of the free product and am no longer able to log in to the program.  I believe the new version moved from a simple 4-number password to a complex scheme.  However, I can't find any tutorial on how to change to the new system and there is no support for the company (I end up at some web domain sale site when clicking the line in iTunes Store)

    If you haven't already done so then you can reset the password for your iTunes account via http://iforgot.apple.com, and after doing that log out of the account on your iPad by tapping on the id in Settings > iTunes & App Store and then log back in so as to 'refresh' the account on it. And similarly if using the account for iCloud then Settings > iCloud > Sign Out and then log back in
    You say that you 'have a new account', if you have created a new iTunes account then all of your downloads from your old account will remain tied to your old account, so only that account can potentially redownload those purchases for free and/or download updates to its apps.

  • If I change the password for my icloud account will it also change my apple ID password?

    the two passwords are the same now - If I change my icloud password does that automatically change my apple ID password or do I have to change it seperately?

    If you change the password for your iCloud ID, you have to change it on any services you use the ID for on your device.  If you use the same ID for purchasing, go to Settings>iTunes & App Stores, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in using your new password.  If you use it for iMessage, do the same thing in Settings>Messages>Send & Receive.  If you use it for FaceTime, do the same thing in Settings>FaceTime.
    To change it for iCloud, you have to go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, then sign back in using your new password.  When you delete the account it only deletes the account and your synced data from yor iPad, not from iCloud.  Provided you are signing back into the same account and not changing accounts, your data will be synced back to your iPad when you sign back in.

  • How do i reset the password for cisco DMM 5.1 hardware machine

    Dear All,
               I have a cisco DMM 5.1 with some players installed on it, I can login to the dmm 5.1 via web browser but I cannot login the hardware directly through the console, I dont have the password for the console access, Could any one please help me resetting the password for the cisco DMM 5.1 physica server keeping the data and the configuration on the server intact.?
               Please help!!

    Dear Fahad,
    If you have lost your "admin" account password, it can be recovered using the "pwadmin" account as documented at the following link:
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/video/digital_media_systems/5_x/5_4/dms/aai/administration/guide/pwadmin.html#wp1079466
    If you have lost your "pwadmin" password as well, you'll need to open a TAC case and get a "DMS 5.1 pwadmin reset" ISO image via TAC. You can then boot the appliance with the provided CD to reset the "pwadmin" password, then login as "pwadmin" and reset the "admin" password from there.
    Regards,
    Marco
