Password? I have a notebook with about 8-10 pages of passwords.Some were only used once for an online auction for baseball jerseys. Others I ignore now. They are in a code that I'm the only one in Tennessee who knows it.

If you cannot find a record of your password (as indicated, it's a good idea to have passwords written or recorded somewhere), one thing you could do is make sure your new i-phone is set up as a new device i.e. a different name.  That should be considered a new device and you should be able to set up a new share to your camera.

Greetings,

Its also possible to reset the network settings on the camera, which will treat a connection to a new device as new.

I agree.  You need to clear out the network connection to the old phone.  It only works with that phone’s MAC address.  You need to define a new connection to the new phone’s MAC address.
