    Exclamation iTunes password resets by itself

    The past few days I was unable to updates my apps because I was running on iOS 4.
    But before that I was able to do that without hesitation, I key in my password and BAM, updates.
    But now, it seems that no matter how careful I am on keying my password, it says its incorrect.

    So that's weird, so I try to reset my password in iForgot, but then I got another error.
    When I finish typing the new password.

    "This email address is already in use or you may already have an Apple ID associated with this email address. Please try again or sign in using your existing Apple ID."

    Anyone experienced this before? Or is it a come and go bug?

    Default iTunes password resets by itself

    I have not experienced anything like that, but I highly suggest you login to Manage Your Apple ID and verify your information as well as change or create a new Apple ID and/or password. You may have to do the latter first.

    But that's the point, I can't even log into my account, my old password doesn't work, and I can't even change it.
    If I create a new one, what happens to my old one?

    Try rebooting your device. Also, if you're trying to troubleshoot via your iPhone, try using a computer. You may have to call Apple.

    Rebooted, no changes.
    Will my Credit Card number be any danger if I just leave it like that and make a new one?
