    If you follow this link, you can change your Apple ID email address and reset your password. https://iforgot.apple.com/appleid

    This should work even if you no longer have access to your original Apple ID email address.


    BTW, I've moved your post to the iPad Help Forum where it will receive more attention.

    If you still use the old email address, try this:

    Open the following link:
    https://appleid.apple.com
    and select "Manage Apple ID". Login with the old ID and password. After logging in, select "Name, ID and Email Addresses" (1). Go to "Apple ID and Primary Email Address" (2) and tap "Edit" (3):

    Now enter the new email address and save it:

    You'll need to verify your new address.

    When you open iTunes (computer), you'll find the Apple ID with the old address in iTunes Store somewhere at the top. Tap it and sign out, then sign in with the new one.

    Hope that helps.
