    Hey guys! :P
    So, my little brother just bought a used iPad 2 on ebay. However, when he tried to setup it, he needed an activation code. It seems the iPad is still linked to the previous owner's iCloud. We contacted Apple but they can't help us since we don't have any purchase proof. Is there a way to unlock it, free or not I don't care, I'm just trying to help my little brother. Thank you very much! :)

    I forgot
    There's not much you can do to remove iCloud locks. You'll either have to get the password from the person who sold it to you, or bring it into an Apple store with proof of purchase and have them remove it. Otherwise there isn't anything you can do.

    Congrats you bought a really expensive (probably stolen) coaster!

    Option 3 is to replace the motherboard
