Tip & How-To about Apple iPhone Smartphone

Getting an iTunes account

To set up your iPhone, you'll need an account with Apple's iTunes Store. If you already have an iTunes account, make sure you know your account name and password. If you don't have an account, you should set one up now to save time later. To set up an account, launch, select the iTunes Store, and click the Sign In button in the upper right corner of iTunes. Sign in and you're ready to go.

I bought my iPhone 5c used and need to know how to get iTunes password for account that already exists on phone or how to reset it and set up my own iTunes account on it? ??


You have to set up a new account, using your email address, password and credit card details. For obvious reasons, you can't use the previous owners account and they will be using it on their iphone 6.

Click Settings (the cog wheel)

Click I-tunes and App Store

Click on the Apple ID that you can see.

Click Sign Out

Reboot the phone (power down, and back on)

Go back to the same place and set up your own account.

If you have forgotten your iTunes Store account name, you can recover it if you have made iTunes Store purchases by following these instructions:
Note: In most cases, your iTunes Store account name will be your email address. You may want to try signing in using your email address as your iTunes Store account name.
  1. Open iTunes
  2. Highlight one of the items you have purchased (You can find your purchases in your Purchases playlist).
  3. Choose File > Get Info.
  4. Click the Summary tab.
The Account Name area will list the account used to purchase the item. Unless you have changed accounts, this is your iTunes Store account name."

The user name and password that is asked for is the same one you set up in itunes when you appled for an account.. the user name is the e-mail address you used for the account and the password you associated with it so if you have not done so set up an account with itunes first.

If you have already got said account then double check to make sure you are entering the correct password the e-mail you used should be already visible in the dialogue box that has popped up asking for the password
