I do not know my apple id

I bought a iPhone 4s about a year ago, I used it for about 3 weeks then went back to my android... My android is now dead. I restored everything on my iPhone because it had a load of music and just stuff I did t want. Then when I went through the set up after restoring it the phones asks me for my old email and password. I have no idea what this is, not even from the starred email is shows me.. ( p***********s@me.com) iv been on apple support and they say sync it with the last computer it was used with and this will lift the passcode etc.... How on earth do I get around these very unnecessary apple ways!!!!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Apple's ways help protect you from theft by making it hard to use by those who would steal from you.

I am the only owner of the phone though. It was bought brand new, I just have no idea what my email or password is, I used it for about 2-3 weeks about a year ago and never touched it until last week. Are you telling me I bought a £180 paper weight?

And yeah I understand stand why this is happening. But what about a case like mine where I have genuinely forgot my details... There must be away around this... Can I not buy a new motherboard or something?? Surely that will be cheaper than another new mobile?

Because when u bought the phone it still must have had the last owners icloud account activated on it with find my iPhone.

If you don't get the iCloud account off that person then I'm sorry to say the phone is useless

1. do you have the files backed up somewhere?

2. If you have then try a Factory Reset and you will get the IPhone in a Beginning setting as if new. Any old files will not be there but you will be able to start it with your Apple Itunes account instead of someone elses.
