    Hi,

    I had a small (paper) notebook with the passwords to
    my Apple ID and to the e-mail address I had linked to
    it. This notebook got recently lost and the passwords
    to both accounts got lost as well. It wouldn't be a
    problem to create a new Apple ID but I already had a
    couple of applications I had purchased for my older
    iPhone. What do you recommend me to do?

    Thank you, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    If you cannot remember the id, password or the email address, then I'd say your options are quite limited to creating a new one.

    Hi maflynn,

    Thank you for your answer : ) !!!

    Yes, it is what I was thinking!
    What happens to the applications
    I bought, will I still be able to
    use them?

    Thank you again, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    First off, check every email address that you can have access to, and then look, or search the emails for any receipts from the iTunes store or the App Store.

    If you have access to any of the songs you ever purchased with that ID, Getting info in iTunes will allow you to see what email songs were purchased from.

    Also, when signing up for an Apple ID, you would have registered a rescue email address.this email address is where Apple will send you ways to unlock your Apple ID account once you determine what the registered email address is.
