Hello Diana,

First, don't freak out, we're human and this stuff happens. Apple provides multiple ways to recover a forgotten ID login or password, and you can start the recovery process either directly on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Mac, Windows PC, or just about anything with a web browser.
The different processes described below will work to recover a forgotten Apple ID (meaning the email address used to login), and/or reset a forgotten Apple ID password. This can be particularly helpful if you're setting up a new device for yourself or someone else, switching a device to a credit card-free ID, or changing the Apple ID associated with a device, and you can't remember the pertinent login information, or if your email changed at some point and you didn't update your Apple details to go along with it.
Before anything else, know that you can always Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security if you want assistance through official channels to regain account access, which may be the best option for users who are overwhelmed or confused.
Recover or Reset Forgotten Apple ID or Password on iPhone & iPad
This is all done on an iOS device and is often the simplest way to log back into an Apple account:
1. Open the Settings app and scroll down and tap on "iCloud"
2. Tap on the email address at the very top of the iCloud settings screen
3. Tap on the blue text underneath the password entry that says "Forgot Apple ID or Password?" where you'll have two choices:
If you know your Apple ID and don't remember the password, type in your email address and click "Next" to start the reset process
If you don't know your Apple ID, tap on "Forgot your Apple ID?" and fill out your full name and email address to recover the Apple ID login (yes, you can then do the password reset after you have the Apple ID)
Answer the security questions pertaining to that Apple ID, and follow the onscreen directions to complete the process
At this point you should be good to go, you can reset the password for the account and then login as usual.
What if this doesn't work, or what if it doesn't find your Apple ID? You can try one of the next two options:
Find a Forgotten Apple ID by Email or Old Email Address
This is a more advanced trick to search multiple email addresses, which is incredibly helpful if you switched email accounts at some point in time and that's what has caused the login problem. This can be done with any web browser in iOS, OS X, or Windows:
1. Open the web browser of choice and go to this Apple iForgot website: https://iforgot.apple.com/appleid (creative name, eh?)
2. Enter the first and last name associated with the Apple ID, your current email address, and any and all prior email addresses to start the reset process
3. Answer the security questions associated with the user to complete the reset process
This will help to find the Apple ID, but if you can't recall the password to that ID then you'd need to go to the next step as well.
Reset an Apple ID Password from the Web
You can also start the password reset process from the official Apple ID website, this also can be done any device as long as you have a web browser:
1. Go to this My Apple ID site and under "Manage your Apple ID" choose the "Reset your password" option
2. Enter the email address associated with the account and answer the security questions as usual to complete the password reset process
Finally, if you're completely stuck, you're annoyed, confused, or none of the above has worked, you can contact Apple directly about your account here (Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security ) or at you local Apple Store and in many situations they can help you to regain access again.

How can I bypass iCloud activation on iPad 2?


Hi Tamara,

This is a security measure put in place by Apple Inc. to prevent the theft Apple Devices and is not easily circumvented.

At this current time there is no "Hack" to get you past this, you will have to contact your friend for their iCloud account password to get past this, or ask them to log onto Find My iPhone and delete the device from their account.

I hope this helps.

How can I track my other iPhone 5 grime the primary line


Hello
I Dont understand the last 4 words of your question? But...
If you have "Find Friends" or "Find My iPhone" App installed on the missing iPhone then you can track an iPhone from a computer or another iPhone!
On the iPhone you use Find Friends or Find My iPhone and you will need the username & password from your Apple Account which can be checked with iTunes on your computer.
From a Computer you can use a web browser like Safari to log into your Apple iCloud Account at www.icloud.com where you will see the "Find my iPhone" icon.
Perhaps this is the answer your after!

Hi, there!

You can easily create your own Apple ID here: https://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/

But it seems that your particular iPhone is locked via the former owners Apple ID, which gives you no option other than contacting him and asking to delete this iPhone from his iCloud account.

Best regards,
