    My apple ID works fine on my computer in itunes, same ID works fine to purchase apps, I also just turned on Genius apps, and for some reason when I try to log into iCloud it doesn't work, and also for Find my Friends?

    I know this is old but I had the same thing happen a lot to me. A quick fix is to change ur password but after a few weeks it starts back up again, anyone know how to stop this??

    What are you using to log in? Is it a username or an email address? iTunes only likes the latter now.

    If you're still using just a username that is not an email address, go to http://appleid.apple.com to change it to an email address and update your password too.

    What happened to me was when I got and activated my new IP4S I inadvertently opened a new Apple account. I wasn't aware of this until I had the same problems as you. You need to log on to your Apple account on line and try to determine which account is which and then once you have confirmed the correct username and password go into everything that uses your Apple ID and log out and back in with the correct ID. You can still be using other Apple functions and be using the wrong ID without knowing.

    Find Friends Incorrect PSWD

    First pour yourself a beer on ice... nothing too lite. Maybe a Yuengling or something that color. If you dont like beer then just have a nice cab or a spritzer. If you dont perfer that or maybe youre a little to young for that then how bout a fresca, Danny? Hmmmm? HMMMMM? Now, after it says you have entered your pswd incorrectly choose "iforget" , I KNOW YOU DIDNT FORGET- JUST DO IT!!! Now jump thru the hoops to change your password (its probably time you should do that anyway since youve never changed it before). Now double click your home button. This should display all recently used apps. Hold your finger down on the first one till it starts shakin.... now close all of those apps (its probably time you should do that anyway since youve never closed em all before). Now go back to find friends and enter your freshly changed pswd. Viola! Now you can get back to stalking people and, AND you dont have 300 apps running in the bkg anymore! Youre the best around and no one's ever gonna getcha down...YOURE THE BEST!

    Try using your @me.com email as the login name with your usual password. That's what I have to do.
