How to remove icloud activation lock

The only way to remove the Icloud lock is to contact the previous owner and have them provide their Icloud information ( user name and password). Once you have that information you can disable Icloud and remove their account from the phone and then perform a factory reset. This will take the phone back to a new from the factory condition.

How can i unlock my garmin nuvi 200. what steps do i have to do to access my garmin.i bought my garmin from a friend who got it at a pawnshop.and its asking me for a pin that i do not have.can you help me?

Since you bought the device used, it's likely the previous owner did not clear the passwords and data. Short of tracking down the previous owner, there is no way to unlock the unit without doing a factory reset. Here's a guide to reset the Garmin GPS units to their original factory settings.

Every phone ships with a factory reset option. Check out the settings for Factory Reset. This will remove all data on the mobile and will revert it back to the settings as when it was when bought.
