    Well rIght now yes they replied back to me and they say they said they need  the order number of one of my purchases

     

    - the answer to each of your 3 security questions (3 answers total needed):

     

    And two items from this list:

     

    - your birth date

    - the billing address listed on the account

    - the phone number on the account

     

    Is this what you went threw to reset your account ?

    I too am having the same issue. My son can't remember his answers. This is very frustrating...I'm not a patient person when it comes to technology!

    Seems to me after reading many comment on this issue that one of the following three is the logical answer

    1. help is designed to frustrate so that no responsibity is take.

    2 The staff have not been given any training.

    3 The staff are all just making it up.

    Idk where, but you have to go to a location on itunes, enter your current secerity settings, and then change it.

    Check actual time and Time Zone settings

    HI,

     

    I am afraid that my experience with the Apple ID page is different.

     

    I can get to this page

    Apple - My Apple ID
    Uploaded with Skitch!

     

     

    Then using the Menu I can see this page

    Apple - My Apple ID
    Uploaded with Skitch!

     

    At this point each Security Question is a drop down showing your the other options.

    I can change the Questions and the Answers (If I can't remember the current Answers) with out needing my Password.

     

    Changing the password is slightly different  (But this thread is about changing the Security Questions)

    Hi,


    Do you have Access to the email listed on the First page ?

     

    An @mac.com name for instance is not an Email address in itself.

    As a name linked to a MobileMe account it could be used as a Email name with the @me.com account.

    Of course MobileMe has now ended.

    You may have Linked an Existing ID such as @Mac.com to an iCloud ID (again likely to be an @me.com name).

     

    You could also try the options that Sandra285 suggests on the 16th June.
