While browsing through ebay to buy a second hand iPhone 6, I saw one listed very cheap but it says iCloud locked. What is this and is there anyway to unlock it if I buy the phone ??

Its probably a stolen iPhone. No point buying it as you cant bypass the iCloud lock.

For more details on the iCloud lock:

An iPhone that is iCloud locked means that the phone cannot be used without the original owner of the phones Apple ID and password. You cannot unlock an iCloud locked iPhone without the Apple ID and password. The reason why the eBay seller is selling the iPhone cheap is because the phone they have is just a paper weight that cannot be used

Well, could have looked in the F.A.Q, could have googled it, but it means someone is selling a stolen device, and no, there is no bypass for it. If you buy it, your money is wasted
