First of all, i read lot of topics about icloud activation lock and lot of people saying its always the buyers fault and we shouldn't waste time discussing this but here is my situation (im not asking about bypassing it) I didn't know about the existence of icloud activation lock as i am not (until this point) an advanced iphone user. i believe A LOT of people don't know about this issue also (friends of mine for example) since apple didn't make sure to tell everyone about this when ios 7 was released. not everyone who buy/sell used iphones are aware that it might become a paperweight. so my point is: i bought a what now i know is a stolen iphone via internet and i want to find the original owner to give it back or work out something.. but apple just isn't there to help. i mean, apple can tell whose appleID it is and contact the person. why wouldn't they help?? i'm willing to help some person whose phone was stolen. apple should help in certain cases!
