    Hi,

    I was recently sold an iPhone 4 for $190 and soon after turning it on I noticed that it was linked to someone else's iCloud account :confused:, is there any way I can bypass this so I'm able to use the phone as I normally would? Preferably a method where I don't have to pay as the phone took a fair amount out of my budget.

    Not possible to bypass the activation lock.
    Take it as a lesson learned and be more careful next time when buying used.
    You should test it out carefully in order to make sure you don't get scammed again.

    There is no way to bypass the lock. Contact the seller and ask them to unlock it.

    It's a little funny that it says Safari on iOS 8.1 isn't a supported browser lol

    Man... you got ripped off twice... 1 for getting an Activation Locked iPhone and 2 paying $190 for an iPhone 4.

    Your iPhone is useless.

    There is an option, I've done it with a iPhone 4... Of course for free, but I'm not sure if it is legal to post it here, I don't want to get banned :D. Do more researches in google, I can guarantee, THERE IS A FREE OPTION :)!

    That is the most unintelligible sentence I've seen in 11 years of perusing these forums.

    He's speaking in code. It's rudementary, but code nonetheless.
