What happens if I can't recover my Apple ID password?
I have an Apple ID for an iTunes Store account, and I want to change my email address on it. I can't seem to access my Apple ID password without being able to use my old email address, and I don't know how to change it.
When I go to "My Apple ID," I get this error message: "The requested Apple ID could not be validated. It may have been deleted or disabled, or it may have been recovered from backup."
How do I recover the password to my Apple ID? You can't. If you had a backup of your account, it might still be available in iCloud backup (if it was backed up before you tried to reset your password), but you can't change your password without access to that backup. I have no idea what you are talking about. There is no way to change your password without access to your backup. If there is a backup, it is your responsibility to recover it.
The "account is invalid" error occurs when your Apple ID password has changed since the last time you used it, and you've yet to sign in with that new password. Your old password won't work to get into the account. This is not true. My friend had a password reset because she changed her password on another computer. We got a message that the password was changed successfully. We then signed in with the new password, and the website recognized us as valid users.
That's not true. You can only change your password if you have access to the account's backup.
And in order to access the backup, you must log in with the password.
How do I recover my Apple ID without a phone number or trusted?
If I have a paid Apple ID, how do I recover my account and get it back to "trusted" status without providing a phone number or having a phone?
Without any phone number, if you have your own verified email address you can contact Apple Support and ask for an account recovery. They will send you a temporary verification code via email that you can enter into your Apple ID page, and then you should be able to select the "recover" option on the page that will show your account details. You will need to provide your email address and verify the recovery email, and then you can choose to accept or decline the reset of your password, in which case the temporary verification code expires.
