This is an iPad 2 and it's my wife's machine. Alas, she set it up and not everything is quite right. When she gets snagged she comes to me begging for help. There are currently two problems that are unlikely to be related. Here I'll address the ubiquitous iCloud horror. The other problem (likely for a future separate thread) is that she got an error message a week or two ago when trying to acquire/install a new free app, something about 'space' being limited in capacity. Under Settings>>About it says the machine has 13.5 GB capacity and there are 3.5 GB free. She failed to notate the precise wording of the error message. She deleted some apps at that time in order to fight the dilemma. There are 161 apps now present according to the machine's records. Now about iCloud. I guess iCloud is some for-pay extra backup storage space. I don't even think we want it or need it. I don't recall paying any bill for it. I am unable to delete the iCloud account because I am unable to turn off "Find my iPad" since the password is not known. Oh she knew the password alright, but it doesn't work any more. The pop-up window asking for iCloud-connect is constantly making a nuisance and there's nothing we can do about it! If we ask it to reset the password it offers to do that by security questions or by email. If I choose questions, the 1st question is her birth date but when I specify what it truly is, Apple balks and says that it doesn't match their records. Arggh!! If I ask for email reset, Apple claims it has sent an email off to her and the instructions should be followed. BUT NO EMAIL IS RECEIVED!! I checked both her email addresses and NEITHER one has gotten what was expected. Apple never states what precise email address it has sent the password-reset link to! (It would be mighty stupid if it sent the password reset link to her iCloud email address, wouldn't it?!) So please: now what can we do!?? Maybe iCloud is free. Maybe it is actually useful. I mean automatic data backup of a machine that lacks a USB port would certainly be desireable. And that message she got about space limitation for a new app. Any guess at what that's about? Thanks in advance!
