It sounds like the handset is iCloud locked (find my iPhone hasn't been turned off). This happens too many second hand phones, the previous owner isn't aware of this or u have bought a stolen phone?
If you know the previous owner they would know the apple ID and ID password to activate it, after that you would have to do a reset the phone.
Good luck

Is your sim card csm or cdma? I'm not sure if the iphone can handle both, but I know it works with GSM.

If you have a gsm sim card, then you just need to unlock it. Of course, Apple won't let certain carriers use their phones legally. So you have to unlock it. I don't remember the exact process, but there's a good program to help you through it step by step.

Go to this site and read up before trying to do anything technical with your phone (link)wikee.iphwn.org

There's a lot of informtion there, so make sure to read up to find what's best for you. You'll need to know the firmware your phone is using 1.1.4 to 2.2 you need to know. The site I posted should have all the info for you.

Again, if your sim card is gsm, it should be no problem to use your sim.

Alright, good luck.

I bought Apple iPhone 4s model a1387 I can't login?


You need to be more specific. You can't activate it or you can't login? If it's asking for an iCloud password, that's an anti-theft feature of iOS 7 and you won't be able to use or wipe the phone unless you get the password, or the account owner releases the device for you. You need to contact the seller. If they stated in the ad that it's "iCloud locked out" and don't allow returns, you have no other recourse than selling it.

I bought a second hand phone and when i turn it on it says "please enter sim password". i don't know what the password is, i've tried 3 different sims and it says the same thing. how can i get it unlocked...


Unfortunately the second hand phone has the password request activated and so is asking for the passworrd on switch on.
you will need to reset the software in this case.
