    Hi Everyone!

    I have a really awful situation. I have an iPhone 5s that i got for my Dad
    but the email is completely forbidden and we cannot go into the system activation. I tried with my SIM card and i tried with other methods but it seems that it just does not seem to work. The iPhone is an iPhone 5s and its on
    iOS 8.1.2 and its really complicated to Activate.

    The email is completely forgotten, and i tried to restore it with his Backup, but its impossible because its locked with iCloud. Is there any other way to actually unlock it? i tried "Doulci" Supposedly they have MAC versions to Bypass but honestly i do not have a windows laptop and everything is .EXE which is windows format. Please anyone can help me to actually unlock my Dads phone,
    this was an accident and i did not know this would happen.

    I formatted the phone cause i thought it would restore through iTunes with a back up but nothing seems to work and I'm extremely worried cause theres not actual way to call him whatsoever..

    Thank you everyone.
    It will be great help for everyone else that commits such accident or
    does not remember the Passwords, or anything similar to it.

    It sounds to me more like your phone is forbidden rather than your email. Seriously, there is no way around activation lock. If he doesn't remember his password then he can use the iForgot option to reset password. It doesn't not matter if he has access to that email or not. If he can't answer the iForgot identity questions well then, you have a brick. What is more likely is this phone has been lost or stolen or sold to you 2nd hand.

    You cannot bypass iCloud activation pure and simple. This topic comes up so often there's really no reason to keep this one going.
