    I reset my password and it is working now! Just give it time after resetting your password

    I'm so frustated with this. I just bought a new Ipad 2 and when I tried to start using it, it keeps me asking to verify my password, only to always get the same error "This email address is already in use or you may already have an Apple ID associated with this email address". I never had an Apple ID before.

    I still have the same problem, @satish.  Attempting to reset the password had no effect.  Still got the "This email address" message.

    this is absolutely ridiculous!

    it's been a week since the first post, and no one has yet to respond.

    i will be returning my iPad soon if this doesn't get resolved shortly, sent an e-mail to apple support hopefully we'll all hear back soon.

    I was having this problem, I then realised may be many years ago I had an account created with this email address, so I changed the email address (Apple Id) and it was immediately verified.

     

    Strange ... shouldn't Apple have known there was already an Apple ID assosiated with email I used?

    This email address is already in use or you may already have an Apple ID associated with this email address. Please try again or sign in using your existing Apple ID.

    I did a password reset two times. The second time it worked. Not sure if there is a method to it. Or it just happened.

    General reply to those who still have issue with this. I tried fixing it for hours today, and this is my temporary solution until Apple gets their act together. You will need a new email address that you haven't used as Apple ID before.

     

    - Go to Apple ID log in page.

    - Click on "Manage your account"

    - Click on "Edit" beside the email address

    - Change it to the new address and save

    - Check that mailbox and go through the verification process again. This time it should work if this email address has never been associated with an Apple account. At least it did for me.

     

    You will have to use that new email address as your Apple ID for now. For me this isn't ideal because I want to use the original email address for iMessage. So I tried to change from the second email address to the first one, and had the same verification issue again! I could not change back to the second email address either, and had to use a THIRD new one to make it work again. It looks like Apple is not clearing out their database properly when you disassociate an email address... Nuts!

     

    If changing back to a previously used email address works for you, I'd be interested to know. Good luck!

    "Hi all,

    2) Click the Manage your account link on the right sideof the page.

     

    3) Enter the account name (Apple ID) and the password you used when creating the account.

     

    4) Change the email address associated with your account.

    Ok, guys, until Apple corrects this issue, who has Apple ID with Gmail account can use a trick of Gmail.

     

    Google do not check dots in e-mail account. It means that email@gmail.com is the same address that e.m.a.i.l@gmail.com, or any other combination.

     

    So you can use this 'new' e-mail on the solution:

     

    1) Visit My Apple ID at https://appleid.apple.com/.

     

    2) Click the Manage your account link on the right sideof the page.

     

    3) Enter the account name (Apple ID) and the password you used when creating the account.

     

    4) Change the email address associated with your account. (only put or remove a dot from your Gmail e-mail)

     

    5) Send new verification email

     

    You will receive the e-mail on your regular gmail account, but remember that your Apple ID will be the new one with dots

    I think I might have figured it out. This was happening to me for hours last night while setting up my mother's new iPad.

     

    When creating a password for an Apple ID, the password rules say that you can't have 3 CONSECUTIVE or repeating numbers. However, if you do have 3 consecutive numbers, Apple does not reject the password. But then when you go to verify the account from the email link, you get the error: This email address is already in use or you may already have an Apple ID associated with this email address. Please try again or sign in using your existing Apple ID.

     

    It's a bogus error because it's a screwy situation that should be never happen. The password should have been rejected upon creation.

     

    After I noticed this, I changed the password, no consecutive numbers, and it worked! Whew, only spent 4 hours of Thanksgiving family time on this.
