    Default I can't get past the Activation Lock after my update

    My son just did the update and he thinks he remembers what he used for the Apple ID. It gives the first part of the email used for Apple ID. We tried the password he would have used and it says that that Apple ID cannot be used to unlock this phone. Does anyone have a suggestion. We have tried everything.

    It's has to be the original Apple ID that was on the iPhone. If he does. It remember he can go to iCloud.com to reset it.

    Use the password reset option on the iCloud website.
