About a week ago my dad's iphone 4s went to diabled mode. He has recieved several iphone found message although the iphone isn't lost. He tried reseting it using itunes and today in the itune process he was asked if he wanted to continue or cancel. He hit continue and it went to iphone block mode.

Many thanks!

I voted What to do? Any suggestions on your part then? s/

In all seriousness, was the iPhone bought second hand?

I bought it on ebay and it was new. I used it for a year and he is using now. It is linked to my icloud.

I tried googling it, but couldn't find anything.
