Long time forum lurker here. First time posting because my wife and I are in desperate need of advice. We are currently traveling with a tour group through Asia. While in China my wife’s iPhone 6 suddenly stopped working. Before leaving the country, we bought her a brand new XS from what appeared to be an official Apple store. On our flight to the next country (Taiwan), we were setting up her new iPhone XS and found out, according to T-mobile, that the phone was reported lost or stolen. They said the phone is both carrier AND activation LOCKED! We are able to power the phone on, connect to WiFi, and get to the home screen to browse with Safari. But we haven’t tried logging in to her iCloud account yet. My question is, is it safe to log in to iCloud on a locked device? Does Apple allow you to log in and use the App Store and iMessage even if the device has a bad IMEI? My wife urgently needs to download her employer’s app so she can continue to work from abroad. She can get by for now without cellular service, but she really needs access to the App Store and iMessage. Do you think it’s safe for her to log in to iCloud?
