Report to ebay and make a claim, you will get a refund and the seller will have some explaining.

If the serial number has been entered into a stolen phone data base then you are likely out of luck, unless you can find a service provider who does not check that list.

It is illegal to unlock a lost or stolen phone.

How can I unlock iCloud?


Hi Malibu , If you've locked your phone through entering an incorrect pin number 3 times then you need a Puk code, Ring your service provider and they will give you the FREE Puk code.....
If you lock your phone again some time in the future and you're still with the same service provider you can use that same Puk code.. CHEERS..

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.

Hi Liz
I believe the phone number is assigned to your Sim chip.
Your Mobile Network Service Provider can reassign your Phone # to the new Sim Card. Not sure what country your in.
Pity you didn't have an iPhone with "Find My Phone" activated.
You could have (or the police) tracked the signal to the thief and caught the culprit or you could wipe the data off the iPhone and lock it,...so that when next used it could not be unlocked without a password.
Cheers

How to reset icloud id on a iphone 5 that i buy on ebay?


You really bought a phone that is locked. Perhaps even the owner does not know you have it.
Only the person with the Apple id, ending with .mac.com knows the password. If he is willing to give you the Apple ID and the password, this phone was setup with, you can unlock the phone. If not, you won't be able to do so.
I don't want to frighten you, but most likely you bought a stolen phone.
The security in that phone is so good, nobody, till now has broken this.

Bough an Iphone 4s on ebay. It is locked. How do I unlock it?


There is no workaround to this without help from Apple. The lock is not on the iPhone itself, the lock is on Apple Servers. So you need to call Apple support for advice. But the only way they would unlock it for you is if you provide a proof of purchase that states the device serial number.

Iphone 4s from us sold on ebay cannot be unlocked and used in australia


Go to reset phone under the settings. ( I think) You can reset the phone that way. But if its locked take apart remove SIM card and leave out. Try putting back in now...if that doesn't work then you have to call your phone carrier and explain you bought it from (?) and they will definitely walk u through how to reset it. But not saying it is...but if the phone wasn't bought and is hot ( stolen) then that might throw a red flag. But good luck!! I've been there also. I got help with my computer which was locked and come to find out was stolen!! But call the maker of your computer there's a # on it just call them. I promise it works!

Unlock t-mobile 8700 blackberry and use in in hong kong csl netwo


You need to contact the service provider for the phone. If its locked by the phone company (bought used) you can't unlock it. If the previous owner has a unpaid bill or phone is reported lost/stolen it is no good and can never be activated unless the original owner settles the account.

Unlocked iphone


As of right now no iPhones will work on any carriers other than AT&T, unlocked or not. AT&T has exculsive rights to the iPhone until 2012, so unless you put an AT&T sim card in the iPhone it will not transmit.

Plus even if you could get the phone to work on another service providers network, as soon as you plugged the phone in to your computer, iTunes would disable it...

Sorry
