    If you know your iCloud username and password, then log in first before deleting the icloud from the settings app. Its called ACTIVATION LOCK, wherein thieves would not be able to use the phone without the original owner's iCloud account.

    If you forgot your password, you can reset it using ifrogot.apple.com

    Finally if you don't remember both, you can TRY to go to Apple with proof of purchase in tow and ask if they can remove it for you.

    You can use an iPhone without iCloud. But once it’s been assigned to an iCloud account and Find My iPhone has been turned on, you can’t reset (reformat) the phone without entering your Apple ID and password.

    It is much simpler if you just log in your icloud account. Did you forget you login details? You can always retrieve it.

    Yes, they phone is effectively worthless. Lesson learned, don't buy iPhone from random strangers. You can re-sell it for parts but its not worth much anymore.

    Hay naku this is what happens all the time. iPhone mura lang but it’s locked in to someone else’s account. Buyer discovers too late.
