Hey guys.

So I bought this iPhone 5 off eBay and I'm trying to activate it but it has that iCloud thing on it so i cant without the iCould information.

I believe it is running iOS 7.1 but I cant tell.

Is there any current way to get past this?

Thanks guys

Any help is appreciated

The only thing you can do is contact the original owner (the seller?) and have him/her remove the iCloud Activation Lock. Beyond that there's not much you can do (aside from perhaps simply returning the phone and getting refund).
