I am having a really difficult time reaching tech support for my new MBA 13". I am in the Philippines, and the phone support here sucks, so I want to try the online support. I have already signed up for this support, but I cannot access it because of some glitch in their identification system. I typed in my apple id, which is my email address, and my password. However, it does not recognize me and wants me to create a new Apple ID. When I try to do that, using the same information as before, it then tells me that there is already an ID created using that email address. and so I am effectively blocked

I just need to communicate with a live person to resolve numerous issues that take too long to explain here. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

Sounds like your password isn't correct. Perhaps something as simple as having the caps lock on. Have them reset your password via your email address?

the problem is I cannot contact them to reset my password because phone support here in the Philippines just doesn't answer. It is busy all of the time. I do not have the caps locked either. The issue goes farther than that because when I reply to "forgot password" they send me through the same loop as I described above; a virtual Catch-22. I need some way to actually communicate with a real person to resolve this non-access. Any other ideas?
