Hello Vivienne, and thank you for choosign JUSTANSWER.com

.

Okay so you need to get the password ***** out before you can add an email account to a new phone.

.

So, you will need to use a regular computer to do the password ***** its not available on a phone.

.

Or, I can offer to do the reset FOR YOU, but i need your account information.

.

Which would you liek to do?

Assisit you using a regular computer?

or

I do it for you?

I have a EMAIL address I just can't remember the password i used to set it up
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

I certainly can do it for you......to a certin point.

.

So lets begin.

What is your email address?

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

okay, i am checking on this now......please stand-by

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

Look at the image link below, and tell me which of the 3 options you can access?

They show 1 email address, and 1 phone number......but only partially.....as a security precaution.....you MUST know the remainder of the characters......AND be able to access the account. So, do you know the remainder of the characters?

.

Notice there is an email account using the domain @uk.com

Do you have an email there? Can you login and check the emails?

It is a different email than what you gave me ( you gave me: ***@******.*** and is the password ***** are trying to recover)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That EMAIL was in case I forget my originame [email protected] Com
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

i dont think you understand HOW RECOVERY EMAILS WORK.

.

Lets say you are on the account *****@******.***

The recovery email will need to be A DIFFERENT EMAIL such as *****@******.***

.

It works vice versa too.

If you were logged into *****@******.***, the recovery email would be a different email such as *****@******.***

.

So, your *****@******.*** is using the *****@******.*** as the recovery email

.

So i ask you......can you login to *****@******.*** email account, and check emails?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I didn't try that as I don't use that EMAIL I only use***@******.***. uk
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry I'm not very good with computers
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry I made a mistake it should say***@******.***
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

Well, the recovery options were setup at the time you CREATED the account (*****@******.***)

.

So do you remember the password ***** the *****@******.*** account???

.

Do you still have the phone that ends with 86?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No that number was cancelled by ee when I got this new sim card
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

So, are you able to login to the the *****@******.*** account??? or not?

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

Vivienne.....i am getting very close to recovering yoru account.....

I have the form pulled up, that you need to fill out, to verify the account is actually yours.

.

Please let me know when you are ready to go through the series of questions.......to get your account password *****

.

Also, in order to get to this point, i HAD to put in a recovery email address.......so i had to use mine.

***@******.***

So, we now must work together.....to get this resolved.

.

Please respond...........or you can call me?

Or you can Skype with me?

We are so close.....to finishing.....lets get er done.

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

Look at the 3 images below (there are questions about you and the account that needs to be answered), that Microsoft (Live) is asking about your *****@******.*** account. FYI: you can NOT type on the images, you can send me the answers to my email for better security. (shown earlier ***@******.***

.

If you can give me some of the information, I can submit this form, and potentially get your account password *****

.

But we need to work together.
