    It says password is incorrect and when I have it sent, it doesn't arrive in my email. Tried to start a new account. It seems to work until I try to use it, then I get the same message

When you forget both password and login screename there isnt much you can do. Most times you just hav to start over with a new account but sometimes if you go to aim.com and click find buddies or search profiles you can fill out your name gender age and all of that stuff and it will pull up a list of screenames under the things you put down that match. most times you can find your screename there and sign in with it and click forgot password and follow the steps after that. however if it doesnt get sent to your email then i reccomend updating your email version and also aim version. also if you type in your email address and it doesnt math the original one that you put down wen you first made your account it wont send it so be sure you used the right one! hope i helped

Password reset code


Instructions
    • 1
      Turn on the cell phone. If it's locked, use the current PIN number to unlock it.

    • 2
      Navigate to the "Settings" screen, or to a screen of the same significance. Different phones will have different names for screens, but the security features are always available on the screen that allows users to change the settings.




    • 3
      Open the "Security" menu. On this menu, you will probably be able to view your passwords and information about your phone, such as the email address you were given by your service provider and your phone number.

    • 4
      Enter the menu that allows you to view and change your password.

    • 5
      To change your password, you'll first have to enter your current password. You'll then need to enter your new password and confirm it. Make sure the new password is something you can easily remember. If you lock your phone and forget your password, you'll have to enter your phone's PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) or call your cellular service provider to get an unlock code, either of which can be a hassle.


God bless you

2. Double-click the "Network" icon.
3. Look for "Primary Network Logon." Ensure the "Windows Logon" is selected.
4. Click "OK."
5. Click "OK" to restart your computer.
6. Enter your name, leave the password field blank and press "Enter" after the computer reboots. At the logon prompt, when asked to confirm the blank password, press "Enter" again. You should not see the logon screen again...

I can no longer view received messages in AIM. I know I receive them as they show up in a banner but not in the message window in the app itself. Worked fine foe two months? What do I do to see mes


  • Look at the signal strength your phone is receiving from your cell phone carrier or wireless service. You may have difficulty receiving instant messages or messages may be delayed if your phone is getting a weak signal. Move to a location in which you get better reception.
  • 2Go into your phone's text messaging inbox. Look for any "warning" messages that your inbox is getting full. Alternately, compare the text message capacity your phone can hold with the number you currently have stored. Delete some messages to reduce the size of your inbox, as having a full inbox can result in problems receiving instant messages.
  • 3Sign off from AIM Mobile and then sign on again with your screen name and password. This can "refresh" your status and alert your buddies that you're available for chat.
  • 4Sign off from the regular AOL services, such as the AOL email service, if you're signed on with the same screen name that you're using with AIM Mobile. Instant messages automatically go to the AOL service and not AIM Mobile if you're using the same screen name at the same time with both services.

    How can i get on aim


    First, you'll need to go to http://www.aim.com/ and click on the orange Download AIM button. Once you have downloaded and either saved the file and run it later by double clicking the file name, or by running it directly when prompted, once it is installed, you'll have to create a "screen name" (the name you'll want people to know you by--an alias of sorts) and a password (something secure--it's best to mix upper and lower case letters and include at least one number, but make sure it's something you'll be able to remember--NEVER give out your password to anyone!). After its checked your screen name against others already in the system, to make sure there aren't any duplicates, you're ready to go. All you need to now is add your friends' screen names and to give them yours. Happy Messenging!

    I forgot my sidekick lx screen password how to reset user name and password


    Contact your cellular provider. Ask for Tech Support Assistance. You will be required to verify the ownership of the phone. After doing so, you will be provided with an override security code.

    If this will not work for you, Google: Secret codes for [insert the manufacturer and model number or name of your phone.] You may get lucky....

    We do not have access to a security override calculator at FixYa......

    Having trouble with password i am a new aim user every time i put password in says invalid help


    If your password doesn't work
    There are several reasons why your password might not work:
    • The password you entered isn't capitalized correctly. AIM passwords are case-sensitive, so if your password is "Password," entering "password" (note the lowercase "p") won't work.
    • (For AOL subscribers only) You've recently changed your AOL password and are trying to use your new password with the AIM service. Even if your AOL screen name is also your AIM screen name, changing the password for one doesn't affect the other.
    You can have your password sent to your e-mail address by submitting your screen name at the following Web page: http://www.aol.com/aim/password.adp.

    Forgot my passord and can't seem to get it work need to re-set my aol password


    If you can't remember your AOL® Password, you can easily create a new one by verifying information about your AOL® membership. Only authorized users can change passwords. You can use your AOL® screen name and password on the AIM® service as well. You no longer need a separate password to sign in to AIM®. You can also change the password for your AOL screen name when you are on AIM. If you do so, you'll need to use your new password to sign on to the AOL® service.

    How Do I Reset My Password? If you can't sign on to the AOL® software because you don't remember your password, you can reset your password from the sign on screen. This procedure will work only if you are using AOL® Desktop™ for Mac®, AOL® 8.0 Plus and higher, only for those screen names that show up on the sign on screen, or if you connect with a dial-up modem.
    To create a new password by using your AOL® software:
    1. On the sign on screen, select the screen name whose password you wish to reset, and then click the Forgot Password? link. The software will dial out to connect to the Online Password Reset facility.
    2. In the Word in Image: box, type the letters and numbers that are displayed in the image, and then click Next.
    3. In the Your Answer: box, type the answer for your Account Security Question (ASQ) or provide other information required to confirm authorization, and then click Next.
    4. Type your new password in both the boxes, and then click OK.
    5. Click OK to close the confirmation window.
