Yes, you can send a text message to your friend using your Amazon Fire, to their iPad, but only if they have an iPhone as well. If they do, then your message will either go SMS (Short Message Service), which is basically what you know as a text message, or MMS (Multimedia Message Service), which is what gets sent when you send a photo to a friend with a ...

No, you will have to have a device running either OSX or iOS for it to work, eg a MacBook, iMac, iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad to name a few. iMessage works on these platforms only. Other messages will either be sent as SMS or emails, depending on the client you are sending from and other unknown variables.

When you purchase the app, it stays associated to the Apple ID you used. You can install it on other iOS devices, too. Quoth Apple: You can associate your Apple ID with up to 10 devices, with a maximum of 5 computers at any time. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID. You can re-install it on a new iOS device in the future. ...

The answer is Yes, but why go to all that effort of swapping back & forth between accounts. It would be far, far simpler to use an Apple ID each [as Apple intended] & set up Family Sharing - that's what it was designed for. Shared apps/music/books etc, yet separate 'tastes' in each & no cross-linked messages, email, texts or personal data.

UPDATE for follow-up question from OP You can Authorize each other's computers on your Apple Account. There is a limit to doing this as you can only authorize 5 accounts on any one Apple ID. Then in iTunes on you computers, you can log into one account, download all of the apps associated with that account. Then log out, and log into the other Apple ...

You game center password is the same as your Apple ID password. To get that recovered you will need to call Apple Support and have a iDevice that is registered with that ID already. They will send a code, which you can then relay to them. They will change your password for you. If you are a minor, you need to get an adult to do this.

It kept doing the same to me, until I realised I was using my data and not wifi, so as soon as I turned that on it worked. Make sure you're connected to wifi and try again?

To address the second part of your question: When associating another device to iMessage (to be able to read your iMessages, not sure about the SMS sent by non Apple / iMessage devices) the attacker would've triggered an alert on your device: (Source)

You didn't have to change the Apple ID, you needed only to change its associated email address. The account "name" can be Fred@one.com, the associated email can be joe@two.com The "name" is just that, a name. It doesn't actually even have to be a valid email address, other than for the initial setup. All of which is leading to… No, you cannot transfer ...

If you have two-factor authentication enabled for your AppleID, you will need to generate an app-specific password and then use that to log in to FaceTime on your iPad. If this is the case, you will need to sign in to appleid.apple.com with your normal AppleID password, then click "Passwords and Security" and then "Generate an app-specific password". When ...

You didn't erase the old Apple ID, it still exists. Not using it doesn't make it go away. All the apps installed on your machine, including the OS itself, are tied to that original ID. The only way to be rid of it is to reformat the boot drive & start over; install a fresh OS, repurchase all App Store apps under the new ID. The essential paradigm ...

In Apple world if you are using same Apple ID, your messages and information are shared across devices. That is the reason why you are seeing the messages sent by your family members on your macbook. I would advise you to create separate Apple ID for every individual or disable iMessage from their personal devices. So that the device that was disabled ...

So we have ONE iPhone5 between 2 of us. My wife has her APP store id associated with the iPhone. It appears only one APP store id is allowed per iPhone device. It would be nice if I could logon to the APP store with my Apple ID on this iPhone, without her losing her application information. Example: APP X has information sent only to me on my macbook. APP X ...

I don't think closing the window "messes up" anything. Either your Apple ID is created, or it's not! Check if you can login using your Apple ID in related services like iTunes Store. If you can't login, then there was an error on Apple's side and you can repeat the process again. On the other hand, if you can login, then your Apple ID is already created and ...

I am having the exact same problem. Both on my ipad and my mac. My iphone worked yesterday but when I tried my iPad right afterwards, nothing. Tried my mac today (what I'm using now) and still nothing. The website is probably overloaded!

I've got two separate Apple IDs as I decided I wanted to keep both (not sure of the consequences if I remove one then add that as an alternate to my newer ID). All answers above are correct (it won't let me comment as a new user). Just wanted to note I had no issues using my original Apple ID as a rescue e-mail address for my new Apple ID. You may need a ...

You could install OS X in VirtualBox on your Mac, and login to your old Apple ID on the virtual Mac, and thus bypass this restriction. VirtualBox has functionality for sharing folders between your host Mac and the guest Mac (the virtual machine) so you could copy out the purchases that way. Kind of heavy duty, but it would solve your problem.

This is not possible at this time. On iTunes for Windows, as of version 12.2, you can choose to automatically download all music, books, and apps. On iTunes for Mac, you can automatically download music and apps; and defer to the iBooks app to automatically download books. Movies, however, is not available on either platform. You can automate it using ...
