    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.

    This can be done. like this:
    Click on the Settings menu on iPhone 6s > click on "iCloud" > "Delete Account" or "Exit" > click on "Delete" or "Exit" to ensure that the iCloud account is deleted.
    Once you are done, you can remove iCloud account from iPhone 6s.

    but it will ask you for the password for the apple id before you completely delete it, right?

    welcome new member... ingat ingat lang tayo lagi... the activation lock is there for a reason, to safeguard real owners of these devices.

    My sister's iPhone 6 was stolen last year. Find my iPhone was activated and the phone marked as lost. We've never gotten any notification of it going online. Are there still no workarounds for getting past the activation lock? Makes us feel a little better at least knowing that the thieves got no use from it.

    Mm..ironclad answer: no password no entry. PERIOD. You can’t delete. You can’t reactivate. You can’t do jack shit if you do not have the true owner’s password. Apple designed it to be” unbreakable”. Unless you have access to the dark web or to Israel’s Cellebrite software that supposedly can break iphone security. It was the software that the FBI used to break an iPhone that belonged to a mass shooter.

    As answered before, and to reiterate, always ask the seller to restore to factory default ( the intial state when it was first bought) before buying the iOS device.

    The first screen you should see upon powering up is the language selection screen. If it is not there, it has not been properly restored to factory default. Don ‘t buy it no matter how tempting the price. If the vendor refuses to do a FD, it is 100% stolen.

    We are safe.

    Now, the security feature that prevents thieves from using your iOS device may prevent you from accessing your iOS device. You forgot your Apple ID password. That is why it is crucial that you print your Apple ID credentials and keep it safely in your house.

    My iPhone 5 got stolen years ago but after some months I got a peculiar email from Apple that it was at Quezon City. It turned out that it was a phishing email because my stolen iPhone disappeared from my devices list. I do not know if this trickery is still possible today.
