Here is the story

“I thought that I would just share about how my sister screwed up and lost her iPhone and roped in my help to help search for it and I just want to rant as I did not get any credit for my help and am just finding an avenue to make some noise.

  1. Sis lost her phone, most likely while she was at my mom’s house.
  2. She drove back to my mom’s house to look for the phone and my mom tried calling it.
  3. It’s on silent, so calling it from another phone won’t make it ring.
  4. She attempts logging into icloud to use find my iphone
  5. She forgot her icloud password
  6. Her icloud password is on her “password manager”.. which is just a note on her lost iPhone…
  7. She couldnt use my moms Samsung phone to reset her icloud password. You must use another apple product.
  8. She then calls me from my moms phone, freaking out. Asks if we have any apple products to do the password reset using Apple Support.
  9. I tried using my macbook, but you can only get the Apple Support app on iphone, ipad or ipod touch
  10. I got my trusted friend to attempt password reset
  11. It tried sending an access code to the trusted phone number listed in the iCloud account
  12. My sister used her OWN phone number as the trusted number (whyyyy)
  13. If you don’t have access to the trusted phone number, it sends an access code to the associated email address.
  14. at this point my niece was having a tantrums because it was past her bedtime, so my sister had to leave my mom’s place.
  15. I had to guess my sister’s email password to get the access code. (Which I found out this morning SHE DIDN’T EVEN REMEMBER LOL)
  16. Got my friend to use the code but then…
  17. IT ASKS FOR THE MASTERCARD INFO ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPLE STORE ACCOUNT AS PROOF OF IDENTITY. what in the world lol
  18. So because she went home, we couldn’t proceed until the morning.
  19. She went back to my mom’s house in the morning, I got her cc info, I got my friend to proceed with the attempt to access icloud.
  20. There is a 24 hr hold for apple support to get in touch by email to say how long the account will be locked out and to send password reset information.
  21. My sister almost went crazy as she really needs a phone in the meantime.
  22. She got another phone at with the hope of maybe still finding the original one and transfer everything and sell the old phone or the new phone
  23. She remembers that the daycare is set as an emergency contact and will make the phone ring/vibrate despite it being on silent
  24. She goes back to my mom’s, calls the daycare from mom’s phone, and gets them to try calling 3 times in hopes of hearing ringing.
  25. But unfortunately, she remembers that she already put the sim card with her phone number in the new/temporary phone so it is calling that not the old phone.”
