From the screen image, I would try a couple of things since you should be able to log in to the Mac and do things other than iCloud. Press cancel in the dialog and then check the date/time on the Mac. It should be within 2 minutes of reality if possible. Then go to Safari and check at https://icloud.com to be sure you can log in and the account isn't locked ...

I had a Family Sharing with a UK Apple ID as Organizer ("UK ID"), one adult member ("Adult"), and one child member ("Child"). The problem was that the payment was linked to a fourth, US-based Apple ID ("US ID"), not allowing any of us to do anything. These are the steps I took: In the UK ID iCloud account, I removed the Adult from Family Sharing The Adult ...

At some point somebody used your Apple ID on one of their devices (either OSX or iOS), or their Apple ID on one of your devices. Or, somebody might have connected your or their iPhone in your or their iTunes in the past. And things got mixed up. If you don't have a local iTunes backup, there's not too much you can do to recover. And if you have a local ...

You can do it from Find My iPhone on another iPhone, you just need to sign in as the person whose phone you're trying to find [or get them to do it]. Alternatively, you can find all members' phones if you use Family Sharing. I doubt there's any way to do it from an Android. That really wouldn't be considered safe.

The answer is mixed. While the iTunes app store can be signed into with a separate Apple ID, there will be some data (naturally) stored on the second account you use. The device will not be added to their My Apple Devices, though it will become an Authorized Device in iTunes Store. As such, some level of data will be held in the Apple Servers to facilitate ...

I also shared my Apple ID with my wife for app purchases, and found the transition to Family Sharing painless. This Apple support page goes into details, and I'll answer some of your specific questions below. What will happen to her existing apps, some of which have saved local data? Most likely your wife's iPhone is set up so that iCloud (Settings > ...

Have you tried Settings > iTunes & App Stores > Password Settings. Under Purchases and In-App Purchases you'll have the option of either always requiring the password or to require it after 15 mins. (That is, you enter the password in once and for the next 15mins you won't be asked again). Below those options you also have the Free Downloads setting ...

Since mobileMe (which handed out the @me.com addresses) was turned off some time ago, all you can now create are @icloud.com emails. If you had an AppleID which predates mobileMe (e.g. a dot Mac account) you would have three aliases: myname@mac.com myname@me.com myname@icloud.com So the short answer is, no it is not possible to create a new @me.com email ...

This happened to me I gave my husband my old apple 5s but didn't wipe it clean first. He deleted 3-400 of my contacts in a 1 hour period since they were still using the same iCloud account. From experience I now know to rest the old phone to factory default and set it up that users own Apple ID. Problem solved except couldn't recover my contacts since a new ...

When you say they "don't work" where exactly is this happening? Have you tried logging in directly via the apple website? Eg, (I forget the precise url, but) if you try http://cloud.me are you able to login with your old credentials there? Have you tried via alternative mediums: iTunes directly (ie not via the phone) And are you sure it's not an ...

Do you have other Apple IDs linked via Family Sharing? I would try deleting the offending app, and re-downloading under her ID.

I've dealt with deep-rooted issues on my iCloud account, and I have been asked by Senior Advisors (in the US) for permission to put my account into Troubleshooting mode, which requires that they provide you with a temporary password so they can access your account and see what's going on with it. Talking with various Senior Advisors over the course of a few ...

I used to work for Apple support, both iPhone and Mac, both first and second level ("Senior Advisor" to the outside world). Without knowing all the details, here's my reaction: Support operations that Apple runs in other countries than the United States can rarely have some different support procedures, but this one sounds too far out of bounds. Keep in ...

In a word, NO. No-one reputable will EVER ask for your password, EVER. Proper support have the tools and such in place to allow them the access they need to do what they need. If they have to actually login as you (Which clearly they can only do from a different device anyway, limiting any usefulness it may even have) then surely there is nothing they ...

If you have another phone, you can forward both phone calls and messages from one number to another. If you have another iPhone, you can forward messages for free - just go to Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding. This will make the message appear on both devices within a minute or so of each other. If you don't have an iPhone, I expect other phones ...

I have an older ipod. It suddenly stopped letting me log into FaceTime or Messages. This is what finally worked for me after trying several things. Settings, then mail (mine also says contacts and calendars) then click on your email account that you use with your Facetime account. Delete the account. Turn the devise off then on. Go back in and set up that ...
