no, this is apple's new option to prevent selling stolen idevices. the only way to get by this, is to have the owner sign in to their icloud account and unlink it. contact the person that sold you the device and see if he can do it. if he can't you prob bought a stolen device and it will remain to be a useless paper weight.

What about Downgrading? People say its possible on the iPhone 4?

not without the owner un-linking the device.. like i said above, if it's stolen it's a useless paper weight..

Do you have an iPhone 4, Which was stuck on activation, and tried downgrading? Nope, your just throwing quick answers at me and predicting the device is stolen, it's called second hand.

(04 Oct '13, 15:04) branzehh branzehh's gravatar image

no, i have tested this on a ipad mini, iphone 4 and iphone 5.. dose not matter if the device is stolen or 2nd hand. don't change the fact it's just a paper weight until removed from the owners account..

Sure, I More or less asked for Help, Not all your opinions, so please let me wait for another answer to come through.

as you can see i never use this site and have wasted your time using your pathetic ratings.

@markhack is right, you bought yourself a paperweight if you can't find the "seller."

(04 Oct '13, 15:16) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

@branzehh you might want to start reading here:

It's not opinion
its not useless
its fact

Sorry you bought a paperweight, but you will refrain from the attitude and harassment if you wish to continue posting here.

See the little diamond by @spockers and @Mark Hack and my name? Means a mod. We arent just some yo yo spouting stuff, we know this.

Take a few moments to reflect on that

Wow, the most helpful people in the world and some asshole still pops in and calls their help bullshit. This is why we can't have nice things.

@el batro No, you cannot. Do some research before trying to help thieves.
