Thanks for the question, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.
The following article provides information relevant to your question:
I receive a "failed user name or password" alert when attempting to sign in at iCloud.com or using the iCloud preference pane or control panel on a Mac or PC:
- Verify that the Caps Lock key is not enabled (all passwords are case sensitive).
- Ensure you are using the correct iCloud associated Apple ID and not a different Apple ID used for other services. For more information about having more than one Apple ID, see this article.
- If needed, reset your Apple ID password at iforgot.apple.com.
Note: If you use the same Apple ID for iCloud as you do for other Apple Services, (for example, Apple Online Store, iTunes Store, or Mac App Store), changing your iCloud account password also changes your password for the other Apple services. Make sure you sign in to those services using your new password. Also, be sure to update your Apple ID password on all of your devices and computers that may use your Apple ID (such as, any email applications that you use to receive iCloud email).
Hi, Hopefully it works, I went into my icloud account @me.com click on I forgot id which then goes to Apple you then click on change password, it will email you. you then click on the link in the email and sign in with your icloud account, you @ me .com whatever is your sign in you can then change the password. I was making the mistake of signing in with my appleid as thats what it askes for, but sign in with your icloud id.
Hope this fixis it for you.
I get told that my Apple ID is correct but wont work for iCloud (which I am only starting to learn about so all very new to me!) What must I do?
Second question: I dont have any apple devices (except iPod and iTunes on my PC)..would this perhaps be the reason I cant connect?
Third question: Do I need to do upload iCloud onto my Galaxy phone also?
