    frown apple id issues

    I found one of my dad's old iphones and want to reset it entirely. whenever i go to reset it it asks for the password for his old apple id, but the account was long ago deleted. I don't quite trust apple stores, so are there any other options?

    Have you tried to appeal to the apple ego? If you lob it over the plate, I'ma take a swing.

    Ask your dad for the old password?

    The account is dead, but the iphone still thinks it's alive. It's probably not even asking the server yet.

    That said, I don't think you should need the old password?

    You should just be able to plug it into your iTunes (not his), and click "Restore" to reset it to factory defaults. Does this not work? Or were you trying it on his iTunes maybe?
