It might be best to factory reset the phone, as this will remove any and all login credentials from the entire phone. It will make it as if you had bought it from an Apple store

My first question is do you have a facebook account already, or are you literally trying to make one from your phone? You can go to the android market place and download the facebook app, so as not to be using your browser ever time you want to log in or check your page. If you download the app, you just enter your email and password and login, if you are trying to set up a new account from the phone, I recommend you just use a computer, it will be much faster and a lot easier to navigate!

You can use the same Apple ID that you use with iCloud to access many Apple services, such as the Apple Online Store, the iTunes Store, the App Store, and the Mac App Store. When you're asked to sign in using your Apple ID, enter the same email address and password you used to turn on iCloud.
You can find your iCloud account information in these places:

  • On your iOS device, go to Settings > iCloud.
  • On your Mac, choose Apple Menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud.
  • On your Windows 8.1 computer, go to the Start screen, click the down arrow in the lower-left corner, then click the iCloud app.
  • On your Windows 8 computer, go to the Start screen, then click the iCloud tile.
  • On your Windows 7 computer, choose Start menu > All Programs > iCloud > iCloud.

How would i remove i cloud from a phone i bought and owner no where to be found

There is no known way to bypass an iCloud unlock unless the previous owner provides the correct credentials for the account in question. Performing a factory restore will not remove the lock since the lock requires authentication through Apple's servers. Hypothetically even if you could restore the device to a previous firmware, the lock will remain.

Used iphone 4 needs an apple id and password for the old owner

The only possibility is contacting the previous owner. Without his id and password there is nothing you can do with the iphone. It's the "find my iphone" option under icloud in the preferences app. There are A LOT of apple products (iphones, ipads etc) which are locked to an icloud account and people try to sell them. DO NOT BUY such phones/ipads!! They're perfectly useless!

Bought an iPhone 4S and it's telling me to enter my icloud password something about being lost or stolen

In this case you have a expensive coffee coaster. Only previous or should I say current owner can unlock it or release it from his iCloud account. Otherwise you can sell it for parts (screen, battery, case, buttons etc. except for mainboard). This is a way Apple protects its customers. Only the rightful owner can use this device.

By pass activation screen for iphone 4

If it's running iOS 7, it cannot be unlocked without signing into the iCloud account of the previous owner. If this is the case, you unfortunately have a phone that will do you absolutely no good. This was a new feature in iOS 7 to deter theft.
