    I am having a problem creating a new ID on both my PC and iPad. It would appear that somehow I have created an ID previously but I'm not able to change the password. On my PC I have asked for this password to be sent to the email address but it does not arrive. If I try to change the ID in iTunes it says that "the email address is already verified for another Apple ID"

    I would like to completely (and I mean completely!) delete the whole information held by Apple and start again. The mini ipad in question is originally mine but I have given it to my wife and would like to completely reset it for her.

    Help please....

    Some years ago I tried a Mac and then went back to PCs. I was unable to remove my Apple account, but I did finally contact Apple and they did that for me with no hassle. When I came back to Apple to use an iPhone and iPad I set up an entirely new account.

    Thanks to both Johanna and lowertech for your help. In desperation I contacted Apple Support and finally found out what the problem was. Apparently I put my wife's email address as my second email address on my Apple ID and hence could not use this for my wife's iPad. I therefore cancelled this second address on my ID and was then able to create a new ID for my wife. Phew!!

    All I have to do now is to delete all the contacts inherited from my Son, present on both my iPad and my wife's. Surely there must be a way without having to individually delete each one on each iPad. This would be very time consuming as there are a lot of them. They would need to be also deleted on iCloud...........

    If you start completely from the beginning (Erase all content and settings), everything stored on your iPad will be deleted. Also your son's contacts. They should be removed then. Are his contacts stored in the same iCloud account you're using?

    Hi Johanna,

    Don't know if you will know the answer to this one. I have downloaded (and paid for!) the Code Two Sync program. I have now cleared out my Son's contacts from iCloud and synced it with Outlook on my PC. If I now sync between iCloud and my iPad using Code Two, will it delete the unwanted contacts on the iPad? or do I still have to delete them one by one.

    Why is life so difficult? problem is I quite enjoy it!

    Cheers,

    Grant B

    I don't know that.

    What I'm wondering: if you set up your wife's iPad as new (without backup), your son's contacts should be removed, afaik.

    Hi Johanna,

    One further question - I haven't downloaded iOS7 as yet. There seems to be conflicting views on it and many problems. Are you happy with the update?

    Yes, I am. It needs getting used to, but both my devices and my daughter's are working great, my iPad 3 even better than before. I like the new features.

    I like iOS 7 on my Mini too. One thing I suggest is to read up on some tips for saving battery life and other helpful setup suggestions. You can find those all over the Internet, and on this forum. Once I disabled certain features I found the Mini, and my iPhone, both run very well and the battery life is good. I also implement Airplane mode when I am not using it, which keeps devious apps from sucking battery juice too.
