Hi, and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you today.

Just to clarify, are you having any issues with resetting the iPhone now? Also, do you just want to change the Apple ID/email address used with your iPhone?

Please reply back to me using the box below.

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

Please reply back to me on this page itself (using the Reply box below.)

Do this first on the iPhone now:

Tap to open up the Settings app.

Next, scroll down and tap "iCloud".

Scroll down and tap "Find my iPhone" and then set it to OFF.

Finally, try restoring/resetting the iPhone - does it work this time?

Do keep me posted on the results; I'll be here. Thank you.

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

I see, no issues. After the reset is complete, please let me know if you are able to sign in with the new Apple ID that you were looking to use earlier. We will then continue to troubleshoot further; thank you.
