Changed Apple ID Password And Now FaceTime And Messages Not Work discussions.apple.com

The App Store forced me to change my password to a strong password so I could make in-app purchases. I realized today that FaceTime and Messages wouldn't work.

I never get the email and I have tried several times now. It isn't in my Spam folder. I logged in to the Apple ID site and had it resend a verification email which I did receive and verify.

IPhone :: Receiving Messages "your Apple Id Has Been Disabled" discussions.apple.com

I have been receiving messages "your apple id has been disabled" while updating or purchasing apps on apple apps store. Had followed the advice to reset / change apple Id password via Apple Id but problem still persists. Had sent 2 mails within 48hrs to itune support store via "manage my account" but with no reply except an acknowledged email from itune support. BUT I replied on the acknowledgment email from itune even there is an disclaimer saying "please don't rely" on the acknowledgment email. After sending the mail, a person named "manjunath" replied as itune support centre staff, asking for verification before investigating the problem before enabling the apple id. he/she asked me to answer for some security such as billing address, last 4 digit of credit card no., last purchased apps and order no. The mail does not appeared to be and official respond from apple itune store, very suspicious . Has anyone encounter this kind of mail, wonder whether is authentic and could rally resolve the matter? It seems that many apple id users have encounter the " your apple Id has been disabled" problem, many complained that there is no respond for itune support to rectify the problem. Info: iPhone 3GS

IPhone :: IMessage Suddenly Won't Sign In On 4 And IPad 2 discussions.apple.com

I cant find an iMessage or even just plain old iOS help section. Here's the thing. I have an iPhone 4 (16GB) and an iPad 2 (WiFi only 16GB) both running iOS 5.1 Until last week all was fantastic, then I noticed that during an app purchase via App Store, Apple asked me for extra "security data" and the app purchase went fine. Since then however, my iMessages have not been received by ANY of my recipients. A couple of other iMessage users found they couldn't reach me by iMessage either. I went into settings - messages - and found my iMessage was logged out. I re-enabled it and got a message that "my Apple ID had changed" and I was logged out again! I have checked and triple checked my Apple ID, have even reset it and checked the new one too. I can make app purchases from the App Store, and can use home sharing for my music and videos so I KNOW my Apple ID is right. But for some reason every time I try to turn on iMessage it refuses my Apple ID and Password. My iPad2 is doing exactly the same and tells me to check my email as they've sent me a "verification link" but it never comes through. I have checked the email address and it's fine. All of my own emails come straight through. In fact I've just joined in here and the welcome email just came through on the same email account Info:iPhone 4, iOS 5.1, Also iPad 2 on iOS 5.1

IPhone :: Changed Apple ID In Itunes Cannot Change On ICloud Or Apps Store? discussions.apple.com

I have struggled over this for days. I recently lost the internet provider on my old internet account which was my old Apple ID. I successfully changed my Apple ID in ITunes to a new permanent email address. I cannot change the settings on the App store or ICloud. The suggested solutions for this problem have not worked for me because there is no option for changing the old Apple ID. When you tap on it, it does not change. I have tried signing in with the Old Apple ID (the old email account) and it doesn't work either. I have synced my phone (and lost my contacts in the process but that was an entirely different headache!) to no avail. Some of the solutions stated that I should go to the store and tap on the Apple ID and it would allow me to change...no such luck. Also when I tried Iforgot, it would only let me change my password which is not really any help because the problem is the Apple Id. Info: iPhone 4, Windows7

App Store :: Don't Have Access To That Apple ID discussions.apple.com

I bought this iMac which was purchased new Nov 24th 2011 and I bought it from a friend in January 2012 as well as purchased the applecare. When I did a clean install it removed the iLife bundle and when I try to reinstall it the app store tells me this: These apps cannot be accepted by your Apple ID.These apps were already assigned to another Apple ID, and they will be available in that Apple ID's Purchases list. If you don't have access to that Apple ID and want to receive future updates, you will need to purchase the applications.I would not have done the clean install if I knew that it would take away some of the features but when the Apple employee told me how to do it he didnt tell me that some items would not reinstall without the original Apple ID (not that I blame him).Is there any way that I can get them back on my computer without having to purchase them. I think that since they came with the computer originally that it should be possible. Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
