    Hello Helpers ,
    today i bought a stolen Iphone . When i tried to activate the iPhone it meant that someone didn't delete the iPhone :(. My parents told me that they didn't know about that and when they contacted the one where them
    bought the iPhone he didn't help . Is there anyway to get it working without the passwort ? I have already tried somethings from YT but nothing worked for me and i don't want to download something idk or where i'm not sure if it's safe/clean .
    THank you and sorry for my bad english

    Its iCloud locked. Its for theft protection.. You cannot bypass the iCloud lock.

    There is nothing you can do. Don't buy phones without checking to make sure they aren't blocked by activation lock in the future.

    Also jailbreaking doesn't offer the ability to bypass iCloud lock so this forum isn't the place for this post.

    Is it only by the new Iphones ? because i have a Iphone 4s (1.7.2) and maybe it is possible to activate the older ones ? (please ._.)

    iCloud lock was introduced in iOS7. As long as the original user had the iPhone on iOS7+ and enabled "Find my iPhone", the iCloud lock will be used.

    I would stop trying to use a stolen iPhone and turn it into the carrier (if you know it), or the police department.

    [MOD NOTE]
    As noted there can be no help with phones that have the iCloud lock. There's no reason to keep this discussion going.
