My old phone died so I borrowed a friend's backup phone to use until I got my new phone. After switching from his old phone to my new phone I keep getting the message that my Apple ID has been disabled. I have reset my password multipe times and I still am getting the same message. Help!?!

    Ouch, if even God isn't going to intervene when you're off at church, then you may be really stuck there


    Hopefully it gets sorted out somehow. I'm wondering, where is your old-phone now? Did you give it to someone? Is it still turned on? I'm wondering if it is re-logging in constantly (or trying to) with a different pw, which could be forcing your account to become reset.


    That's my guestimate at the moment.

    Why would you even want the same apple id if someone may possibly have it? There are not that many features of an iPhone that request your apple id, the app store, iMessage and email are the primary, even iTunes not matter, no?

    Been having the SAME issue for several months.  My account was hacked so I reset the password and got everything working just fine, then whenever I try to update my apps on my iPod it keeps saying the account is disabled.

    The website ( says nothing about a disabled account, and everything is "verified".

    I've called them as well and get the "visit the website" option when I tell them what I need (still haven't talked to a real person yet).


    VERY frustrating, and seriously thinking about throwing this iPod at a concrete wall and sending Apple a video of it.
