No, not without help from the thief.

    I bought a iphone 4 from a guy on craigslist, I knew about ios 7.0 having the lock thing, but when I met him, his simcard was in the phone, I tested the phone with his simcard in from of him. The phone looked great with no problems and I even got the box with the accesories, so I knew it was his... I then did the reset on the phone (erase all data... from settings) and it went through and activated and everything was good... I used the phone for about a month with no problems at all, even had my apple ID in the icloud and everything... well ios 7.0.6 came out and I used my computer to restore the phone, because I feel that the cord and computer gives it a better restore, it did great no problems, and when it went to the part where I went to activate the phone, I get a enter your apple id and password to complete activation... Wait... why is this up i thought, I thought I did everything like I suppose to to succesfully switch it to me, the new owner... but now its asking for some C******@yahoo.com.... I only have @gmail.com emails and none start with a C... The guy sold me the phone because he was switching to Verizon, and I tried to call him, and now the number is disconnected... I guess he switched to Verizon with a new number... Now im stuck with a paperweight that costed me $200.00... What can I do at this point... Please help me... I restored it to give it to my Step Son as I just got me the iphone 5... Thank you for ANY HELP in advance... Thank you again.

  • My iPad will not switch on, its the first edition so I am wondering if that is it. I can't access the serial number either so I can't fix it over the phone with an apple expert.

    My ipad is the first edition, it refuses to switch on, its fully charged. I can't access the serial number to tell the apple expert who I spoke to and I am still waiting for a call back. Has it died noting its nearly 4 years old now? I hope not. Can anyone advise?

    Try reset iPad
    Hold the Sleep/Wake and Home button down together until you see the Apple Logo.
    Note: Data will not be affected.

  • Hello, i recently switched from 3gs to 4s. i gave the 3gs to a friend who uses it as primary phone. will my icloud stuff get pushed to his phone? (he uses as just a regular phone, but i signed onto his phone with my apple id once)???

    will my photos, music, etc get pushed to his phone if his photostream, icloud is on etc?
    how can i check which devices have access to my icloud???
    thx

    before i gave the phone, i did 'restore to factory setting' and put his new sim card into the phone.
    but then i logged into the phone with my apple ID (he is simply using the phone as a regular phone without 3g, so he only uses it on wi-fi) to download apps...
    so he is using it as a 'new phone' with all his contacts etc on it, is there any way he could have still accessed my stuff while my icloud was activated?
    i should say that it is not technically a 'friend' but i sold the phone to him, so i'm curious what information he had access to while i had my icloud activated...
    thx all

  • I bought an iphone and I could not contact the owner it is in caniadian

    I tried too much to see if there is a solution but no way it seems i have toys in my hand what shall i do to activate them while it seems i have no contact to the owners since a one bringed to me from canada...................
    anyone can help me

    If the previous owner has set up Activation Lock using iCloud, only he can unlock it, either by giving you the ID and password, or by removing it from his list of devices - please see:

    If you are unable to contact him you will be unable to use the phone, and I'm afraid there is no way round this.

  • I had a one on one with my apple rep yesterday.  They backed up all my photos on my computer.  I was advised to delete photos from Photo stream on my iPhone and iPad and then back it up.  I did backup the iPhone, ipad back not possible not enought space

    Hello,
    I had a one on one with my apple rep yesterday.  They backed up my camera roll from my iphone as well as my ipad on my computer as I was not able to backup to icloud due to lack of space.
    They advised me to delete photos from my photo stream on my iphone and ipad and then do a back up.
    I deleted the photos from photo stream on my iphone and ipad.
    I was able to backup my iphone but NOT my ipad as it is saying that there is not enough room on icloud to do this back up.
    Any solution?

    If it says Not Enough Storage Space on iCloud then you can get more Storage space for iCloud if you want to backup more Data on iCloud Storage. You will find the Pricing for Additional Storage Space and how to Buy Storage Space for iCloud from your Device in the Link below.

  • In my first iPhone 5, the speaker didn't work and people could not hear me on Speaker phone when I used it. When I used the video recording it did not record sound at all only a hissing/static sound, no voice.

    In my first iPhone 5, the speaker didn't work and people could not hear me on Speaker phone when I used it. When I used the video recording it did not record sound at all only a hissing/static sound, no voice. I wished for a software fix. I did a hard reset, nothing. I did a full restore to factory settings not putting my backup on and the problem persisted.

    I did every step in the link that i have been provided with (thank you), but I’m
    still experiencing the same issue. My experience with Apple has been
    excellent and this has been the first time I have experienced something
    like this with an Apple product. I hope we can find a quick solution.
    In order to get the iPhone 5 as soon as it launched (being a major fan of
    Apple products!), I purchased my iPhone 5 from the UK through a friend of
    mine who lives there.
    My question is: can I have the faulty device replaced within Saudi by one
    of the official resellers here (we have 3: STC, Mobily and Zain)? I want to
    avoid the disruption, complication and expense of sending it back to the
    UK.
    Could you advise whether this is possible or not, and if not how should I
    go about having the device replaced?
    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Nice try! Take a hike.

    I have also tried extracting the individual components to the temp file and attempting to install them individually despite being unable to remove the previous install of Apple Software Updater.  The outcome, both Apple Software Updater and itunes encountered the same error message during the install process.

    Is there a way to get a search protocol of the "Find my iPhone" search app and icloud ? And where can i find a protocol of the chat with a apple support worker

    Thanks for the reply however this does not help.  When I check the cloud it shows that I have only 20 photos.  In reality I had a lot more than that.  All the photos on the cloud are those that I have taken since I was at the Apple store.  When I check cloud storage usage on my phone it says that I have 5.1 GB of photos.  This is a lot more than the 20 that I can see.  I am not sure what the Apple employee did to my phone.
    Still looking for answers.  It is really too bad that I can not talk to an Apple person to get help since they messed up my phone.
