I need help setting up an apple id for my son's phone. It seems his email address has been taken and/or we cant get the password.

Two different things
If you forgot the password
If you forgot your Apple ID password - Apple Support
If the email ID you want to use is in use by someone else - then you may need a new one
The iCloud ID's are usually unique and may be of help if you set one up

  • I need to set up an apple ID for my IPAD but my daughter was already using my email address for her itunes

    I need to set up an apple id for my IPad but my daughter is using my email address to purchase music for her IPOD and IPhone.  How can she delete her apple ID so that I can use my own email account?

    Try getting a credit card from the same people who issued the debit card. If I read the home sharing paper properly after your set it up with the credit card you can change the payment method back to debit.

  • A pop-up message is frozen on my settings page. I was trying to set up an apple id for iTunes when I got a message "required fields have been left blank. The missing information is highlighted in red." the ok button doesn't work. 1st gen iPad.

    A pop-up message is frozen on my settings page. I was trying to set up an apple id for iTunes when I got a message "required fields have been left blank. The missing information is highlighted in red." the ok button doesn't work. The message is now fixed & I cannot get rid of it. Ironically, when I found this forum I was able to set up an apple Id. Please advise how to get rid of the pop-up box. Thanks!

    I'm having this same problem as well and cannot advance--very irritating. All of the information is filled out correctly and I've editted my AppleID information online separately as well to get around this issue, but no luck...

  • I set up an apple id for my 12 year old, a verfication email was sent, but google has locked her out because of age.  How do I get the verfication email?

    Should each person in my house have their own apple id and password?
    Can each of the different ID's be linked back to my apple account so that when they purchase apps and music it will be charged to my credit card?

    Ask Google... they locked you out of the email account.

  • My apple id for icloud is linked to an invalid email address and i do not have the password for the account.  I need to delete the account to access my icloud on my iphone.  any ideas?

    my apple id for icloud is linked to an invalid email address and i do not have the password for the account.  I need to delete the account to access my icloud on my iphone.  any ideas on how to override this issue?

    If you updated the old ID at one point to create your current iCloud ID, temporarily recreate the old ID by 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.

    Hello Hoppayoppa
    You would need to have the owner of that iCloud account to turn off. It can be done without them there. Check out the article below for more information. After that is done, you can put the correct backup on your iPhone.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    I have asked for your email address to be edited out. Posting your address in an open thread is a sure way to be bombarded by unwanted email, remember it will be here long after you have resolved your problem, for automated detection software to find.
    If you want people to contact you, enable others to see your email address in your profile.
    This feature has been introduced to make stolen phones useless to those that have stolen them.
    However it can also arise when the user has changed their Apple ID details with Apple and not made the same changes to their iCloud account/Find My Phone on their device before upgrading to iOS 7.
    The only solution is to change your Apple ID back to its previous state with Apple at My Apple ID, verify the changes, enter the password as requested on your device and then turn off "find my phone".
    You should then change your Apple ID back to its current state, verify it once again, delete the iCloud account from your device and then log back in using your current Apple ID. Finally, turn "find my phone" back on once again.
    Apple Topluluk hoş geldiniz.

    Bu özellik onları çalıntı olduğunu bu işe yaramaz çalıntı telefonları için getirilmiştir.
    Ancak aynı zamanda kullanıcı Apple ile Apple ID ayrıntıları değişti ve iCloud hesabı için aynı değişiklik yapmamış ortaya çıkar / iOS 7 yükseltmeden önce cihaz üzerinde My Phone bul olabilir.
    Tek çözüm My Apple ID de Apple ile önceki durumuna geri Apple ID değiştirmek için, değişiklikleri doğrulamak cihazınızda talep olarak, şifreyi girin ve sonra kapatın "benim telefon bulmak".
    Daha sonra tekrar bugünkü durumuna Apple ID değiştirmek gerekir, bir kez daha doğrulamak cihazınızdan iCloud hesabı silmek ve daha sonra mevcut Apple kimliği kullanarak oturum açın. Son olarak, geri bir kez daha üzerinde "benim telefon bulmak" açın.

    Sorry if my English isn't correct because of I'm Italian.
    You must switch on the lost mode on the app " Find my iPhone ".
    If you can see it on the map of this app, you will know where is your iPhone in that moment.
    REMEMBER: you can see your iPhone on the map of  " Find my iPhone"  only if it is online. Indeed you can't see your iPhone if it's offlined or switched of.

    Hey DannyHTDB,
    Thanks for the question. If you follow steps 1, 4, then 5 in the iPod troubleshooting assistant, that will most likely resolve the issue:

  • The apple id associated with my itunes is no longer good because that email address has been deleted what do i do to update the info

    the apple ID that is associated with my itunes is no longer valid because the email address has been deleted,how can i update my info without my old email and password?

    how is what blocked?  the email address? or apple ID... As for the ID, its not bocked but when i entre the password it says... " Your Apple ID has been diabled for security reasons. to enable your account, reset your password on appleid.apple.com" which i did, after i have entred the apple ID, it gives me two options to either change my password by sending it to my email acccount used, first time i clicked use email to reset pasword. i then went to msn to long into that email and msn says that this account has been blocked due to the password being entred to many times to activsate this clcik link beloew and so i did, it then took me the security queastion and the alternative email used within that account is completly different to what put in when i first made that account 2 years ago, the security question to that email is in portugues/ spanish and im neither, so clarely someone has hacked into that email and blocked it... and this why i cant change the password for my apple ID..

  • How do I turn off Find My iPhone when the Apple ID (email) is no longer available and I don't know the password?

    The email which was used for my iCloud and Applie ID is no longer available to me and the password is not being recognised.  I need to update my iphone to the new iCloud account and I am unable to delete the old as it keeps asking for the pasword for the old id / email to turn off Find my iPhone

    Well if he /forgot/ his apple id then what he should do is to look up all of his email addresses to try to get the crendential's back...if he can't remember that then your brother gave you a beauitful paperweight, I hope you didn't pay for it

  • HT1725 itunes keeps giving me an error message that "Your Apple ID has been disabled".  I have tried changing the password and billing information, but continue to get the error message.

    I have been trying to download items from itunes store, but keep getting the error message "your Apple ID has been disabled.  I changed the password and updated billing information, but still get this error message.  This involves free apps which I was trying to install.

    I am having the same problem.  I went through the process to have the ID unlocked (Changing password etc.) and was able to log in here on the website to post this message.  Why am I still getting "Your Apple ID has been disabled" as a message after verifying the account here and signing in and out on my Device.  This has been issue on my Ipad as well. 
    Thanks.
