seriously this is infuriating.

i go to make a purchase in the app store, i get the your ID has been disabled routine, i reset the password online, i am able to login into my apple account through a browser on my computer, manage my account etc, but then when i go to sign in with itunes it gives me the ID not found/password incorrect routine.

don't give me the someone could be hacking your account run around, this all transpires within 5-10 min, i honestly doubt someone is compromising my account between the time i update my password online and then go to login into itunes.

what the ****? someone know anything about what's going on? THIS IS BEYOND IRRITATING.

    Worth noting... Check if you have a Virus Checker blocking Cookies..That will create a Real issue!! as you describe..

    For what it's worth, my account is experiencing the same exact problem daily. It's doubly infuriating because my iTunes account uses my MobileMe account, so when I have to reset the password, I am resetting it on MobileMe.

    I do not run virus checking software on this machine. I do not know what is causing this but I am at my wits end.

    I am almost of a mind to just let my iTunes account sit disabled, except then I can't update my iPad's iOS to the latest!

    I, too, am having this same issue. Every time I try to sign on to iTunes to purchase, I get the "password disabled" message. Something has to be done to remedy this.Very frustrating.

    If you don't have it Use this Web Address to get the Ball Rolling with your issues.

    I've gone through this myself. It seems this link is buried. This will get you satisfaction:


    email to iTunes Support @
    http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact.html?form=account&topic=iTunes%20Sto re%20Account%20and%20Billing&subtopic=Managing%20your%20Account

    If you get a 'Standard form letter telling you to do things you think are inappropriate, then by all means Post to that address again.

    Thanks, all, for at least making me less alone on this one. I've changed all the thinks that access my MobileMe and iTunes accounts I can think of. I've also started the process to contact apple on this. I will let you know if we figure it out.

    Just tried to log into iTunes to find my account disabled AGAIN. Didn't I just post about this a day ago?

    So, since I have to reset it, and since it's tied to my MobileMe account, in resetting iTunes (again) I am also resetting MobileMe (as in my iDisk on my computers, email on iPhone, iPad, computers, etc) again. This is a major pain in the rear.

    I think I am done using iTunes.

    Hey all, I wanted to let you all here on this thread know we're not alone. A lovely lady named Kat has taken up the cause and will be collecting emials from us @Mac.com users to see if she can get some help from cupertino.

    see the thread here
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2689849

    She's also started a facebook group to spread the word.
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/MobileMeMac-users-with-password-problems/171294322 909250

    I suggest heading on over to both places.

    Thanks!

    Hello all! It's Kat! Thanks, Melissa!

    If any of you have a "simple" firstname style .Mac account, like "john@mac.com" or "steve@me.com", and you're having problems with other people locking you out of your account because they're trying to reset the password...and you've just noticed that Apple is now requiring unique passwords...and you have multiple devices that require updating...you're not alone. Please check Melissa's links above. We've got a group amassing with this problem, and everyone's getting the same answer from Apple...change MobileMe accounts.

    If you're in the same boat, you've probably had the address for years. For some, it's nostalgic, for others it's a business necessity.

    Please e-mail me directly if you are experiencing the same issue. That way people don't have to put their e-mail address on the forum...I already get enough spam, so I don't care anymore. But hopefully if we get enough people involved, Apple might realize that this is a significant (and previously silent) issue, and help. kat@mac.com AND kat@glasskatz.com. My .Mac account is losing emails, so please email both.
