iCloud Account Password

I have an iCloud account which I set up for iMessage & FaceTime. I have never changed the password but since upgrading to iOS 6 it keeps prompting for the same & says that my password is incorrect & I should reset it. I know the password is right, I have not set any recovery options so I'm locked out, any help?

You may have to contact Apple if you are truly locked out.

This happened to me not too long ago (not upgrading to iOS6 but for when I signed up to iCloud). The problem was, my Apple ID was using a very weak password (6 characters, all alphanumeric, no capitals)

Apple had changed their password policy to this:

When creating an Apple ID to use with iCloud, your password must have a minimum of 8 characters, a number, an uppercase letter, and a lowercase letter.

To get access to my account I needed to change the password to something that followed these guidelines, and of course now I use a super secure password.
