Take it back to the dealer. See if they have the contact details. If not, get your money back, they should have checked before even buying it from the previous owner. The entire email address is never exposed, so you won't be able to access it. Even if not stolen, if the original owner doesn't remove it from their iCloud account, there's no way to bypass ...

The answer depends. If you are using an apple email (such as me.com, iCLoud.com, mac.com, etc) then that email address is by default an apple id, and I don't know of a way to edit it. If you are using a 3rd party email address (such as hotmail, gmail, yahoo, your own domain etc) as your appleid, then you should first TURN OFF FindMyIPhone on your device if ...

It depends. If it's an apple email address... (i.e. @me.com @icloud.com etc) you may not be able to change it. Navigate to http://appleid.apple.com and click "Manage Apple Id" and log in. If the "edit" button appears next to your primary email address then you can change the primary appleid. (if the edit button doesn't appear at all then your appleid is ...

The E-mail address you use as a login name on an Apple ID can not be changed. It's essentially your user name. You can change which E-mail address you get your mail regarding the Apple ID sent to on the Apple ID settings page.

There are two ways I can see you getting out of this jam if Tyson's answer on the normal method fails you: Contact your email provider and explain the dilemma. Say you'll need delivery of the "broken" email for several hours while you change the AppleID to be the correct email. That way you can receive the validation emails from Apple. Contact Apple ...

You could try family sharing on Icloud, the same thing sort of happened to me. I had bought all of my previous music on my dads Itunes account and then I made my own. Everything was fine until I switched phones and none of my music switched with it, so I just redownloaded it from my dads account. But since I had set my phone up with my apple ID, it was now ...

In order to reset your security questions, you need to be able to log into your Apple ID first. Go to My Apple ID, as Apple calls it. Hit "Manage your Apple ID" and sign in. Go to Password and Security. Click “Send reset security info email to [rescue email address].” If you don't have a rescue address, or you can't sign in, contact Apple. From a quick ...

That OS X asks for the old apple id is probably because you didn't do a clean install. You could make a backup of all your data with time machine and start your mac in recovery mode (press cmd+r) on startup. Here you can erease the hard drive and install os x again.

It won't 'forget' the old ID. Those previous apps were purchased on that ID & are only licensed to that ID. The only way round is to either use that ID for those apps, or to wipe the machine & start over, repurchasing as necessary. For corporate use, it would be far better to not purchase through the App Store, but to buy multi-seat licenses ...

Apple website is broken and has been since 3/13. I opened case#769729461 for this. They are working on it, no ETA on a fix.

I would enter the first 60 letters of the address field in question to get the computer to accept things. Then you could use your postal website (or local postmaster) to determine if your address has a suitable official abbreviation to make it both correct and amenable to the field limits Apple has. You can also always contact Apple Support to get ...

Have you tried logging on to the iTunes store on your computer rather than an iOS device? That will usually allow the account to settle and allow you to start purchasing apps.

I was certain this problem was related to two factor authentication on my Apple ID because problems started happening when I tried to login. After more investigation it turns out it was a font conflict problem preventing the UI from starting. I found an error message in the console application regarding NSString which, after a lot of googling indicated a ...

original poster here - I did basically what Mitchell D suggested and it worked. I actually moved my wife's account to UK first, set up family sharing with her, invited my child to join my wife's new family, then disabled my family sharing and moved myself to the UK, then invited child back to my family. Phew! So far, all seems to have gone OK but was a ...

Follow the apple instructions here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201065 Download OS X on to bootable USB and reinstall it from there. This way you do not have to use your Apple ID.

No, no personal information is stored unless you enter any. If you're performing a clean installation of OS X then simply set it up with a temporary administrator account, no need to sign into iCloud or register etc.
