I have a first generation iPad, which has some apps bought long ago using an old Apple ID. I can't remember the password for it, and tried to use the Apple ID web site to recover it.  When I asked for a reset using the backup email address, nothing came. When I then asked to use the security questions, it wouldn't accept my birthday! So I am stuck.


Do I assume that this id has been eliminated, since I get no emails and it doesn't recognize my true birthday? If it is gone, how can i get updates from the App Store?  Do I have to purchase the apps in question again?

iPad, iOS 5
