iPhone change email password instructions

iPhone and iPad email password change instructions for Faculty/Staff

 

When you setup your account on an iPhone/iPad (or similar device), you're using the password for your username@concordia.edu at the current time. When you change your password (and you don't change the password on your phone) it will sync with the wrong password. Our network accounts have a "3 strikes you're out" configuration. Using the incorrect password on your username & password 3 times will place a lock on the account. So if you have a smartphone or tablet configured with your network account follow these instructions below:

 

IMPORTANT: Your computer access, Blackboard access, and email access use the same credentials as your iPhone email.

For this reason, once you completed these steps, you MUST follow the instructions at the Faculty and Staff Password Reset document.  

 

Also, please peruse the Password Requirements doc re: the criteria your new password must meet.

 

  • First you're going to put ALL your devices in Airplane Mode (if you have multiple devices with your email, you'll need do this for EACH device). 
  • Click Settings
  • Flip the little switch next to Airplane Mode to ON
