Your best bet is to report it to the police. It is the right thing to do and if it has the latest os you probably have no other good options as it would not be possiable to restore without the previous owners password. They do this so it they are stolen they become useless and the criminal will have little choice except to sell it to some one who doesn\'t know any better. If that someone was you, you are also the victim of a crime and should report it. At least the origional owner might get it back and might say thank you. At best, with both your description of the seller and that of the origional victim, the cops might just be able to catch the P.O.S. who caused all the trouble. On the other hand if you are the one who stole it, well no one can help you here as your problems are deep and far reaching, probably requiring professional help on an ongoing basis, and I wish you good luck.
I hope you are not the thief. However, if you had any idea that it might have been stolen when you bought it well then you deserve this hasssel. If either way, go to the cops because you aren\'t going to be able to make it work and if you try to sell it the next guy might go to them and they will come find you. Also if the person had "find my iPad" turned on they probably have your gps location already and you better have a good story ready for when the man comes a callin. Best to get out in front of this. If they do ever catch the thief you might even get some restitution. At least you will be able to sleep better at night knowing you did the right thing. Someone really liked that thing and it hurt to have it taken. You just might restore thier faith in humanity. Just give them this gift.

I bought an ipad air 2 i think it is for my daughter and te guy left the activaton password on it ive been trying to contact him for 3 weeks and hhe will not answer is their a way to get past this


It sounds like it may be stolen? There is no activation password on an iPad.

When you get it, it should be at a Factory Reset state and you enter your own details.

You need to go to a computer and download iTunes. Set up an Apple ID and password. You will need credit card details for this as it gives access to the App Store and iTunes itself. Most apps are free.

Connect the iPad to the computer and tell it to Factory Reset the iPad. It will remove everything on it and put it as a new unit. Work through the wizard putting your own information in and you will be fine. Write down your Apple ID, you PAssowrd and your Lock Code if you set one.

How do I activate


Cellphone?? If so there is a IMEI number its registered to which ever company it was originally under. The only possible way would be to unlock cellphone, if possible aka Jailbreak, and register under a different cellphone company. That "Serial IMEI" is no longer valid under the cellphone company which your friend had "aquired" the cellphone from originally.

Hi I forgot my password for my ipad


The biggest problem with Apple product's is the password. If you forgot your password you need to connect it to you PC/Mac and sync it with iTunes. From there it will ask you for your user I'd which is your email address and pasword. If you've forgot it you have the option to choose forgot password or user name. Either enter the user name and password or select forgot user name/password. If you remember it, it will sync with iclould and you can reset the iPad to factory settings with no password. Now the second option will send an email to you with a link to reset your password. The most important thing is that you remember your email address and password you signed up with when you bought the ipad. "If your in pad says Authorization lock....well you must have activated find my iPad or it is stolen and the iPad is bricked and there is no simple way of fixing this short of going to Apple with your proof of purchase.

How can i activate a iPad if i don't know the previous owners id and password


Call the previous owner.

They will likely tell you the iPad is stolen, but you already know that.

I suspect no one is going to help you with this question.

At least they should'nt.

How to restore a stolen iPad to factory settings


Even if you restore the device to factory settings and clear the previous owners settings, images etc from the device the device will still have the same serial number which apple or the previous owner may be able to trace when the device goes to register online (something it will need to do to access the itunes store).

There are also apps which allow owners of stolen devices to take a photo of whomever is holding their device which they can then bring to the police along with the GPS location settings showing where the device is.

Of course, if the previous owner had the device set up to upload images to their cloud account images you have taken of you, your friends and surroundings may already be in their possession......

Questions: if the device is indeed stolen,

1 - do you really want to answer to the police why you are in possession of a stolen device?

2- if it was your ipad that had been stolen, wouldn't you appreciate someone helping you get it back?
