    hi, i just got used iphone 5s. so i create my new apple id and log-in the icloud.
    but the error occured, and this message has poped up
    "the maximum number of free accounts have been activated on this iphone"
    i searched about this problem on the internet and they say if you have another ios device or mac, you can solve this problem. but this iphone is the only apple device.
    so is there anyone who can help me? you just log-in my apple id and activate icloud.
    please help me. just log in and log out please.

    Never heard of that before but if you need another iOS device or Mac, I'd suggest simply go to any retailer who has them on display and (in your own words) solve your issue.

    So I log in with your ID and then you change the password and my phone is iCloud locked to your account or something along those lines? Sounds like a scam. Don't think so.

    I think you might have purchased an hiphone by mistake.

    Check this out: http://appletoolbox.com/2013/07/icloud-the-maximum-number-of-free-accounts-have-been-activated-qa/

    So, create new account on your PC/MAC and login with that new account on your device.
