I have had my e-mail address hacked which is linked to my

Customer Question

I have had my e-mail address hacked which is linked to my apple ID. This then disabled my apple ID due to security reasons. I have tried to create a new apple ID to set up and use. However beacuse i am unable to get out of the previous one i am unable to use. I have tried to reset my phone back to factory settings in the hope it would let me in using my newly set up apple ID. However this has now completly locked me out of my phone as it still requires the password ***** for the disabled account.

Thank you for confirming. I was not aware of what you have or have not already tried.

The only way around this issue is to speak with Apple technical support directing so they can look up your information and reset it for you. What is a phone number that you can be reached at?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
i no longer have a phone due to this issue

Scott,

In this case, you will either need to borrow someone elses phone or go into a local Apple store to fix the issue. To find a local store, click here: http://www.apple.com/uk/retail/storelist/

Since the issue needs to be resolved by confirming your account, it is required that you speak with someone over the phone or in person.
