So when you get a used iPad, but the original owner still has Find My iPhone enabled on it, when you go through set up, you need to enter the original owner's Apple ID credentials to get past it (or the owner turns off FMI).

I was so lucky to get one of those iPads, but the thing is that I have no contact info on the damn owner. Sigh.

So now this iPad is useless and I can't do anything with it.

"But Hazard, why can't you just talk the person that gave it to you?"

It was lost and I decided to take it home.

Welp. Guess I might as well sell it.

Is the IPad not factory reset? I'm pretty sure you can just fix that on ur pc.

Already factory reset, it's still in setup.

The problem is that the iPad connects to iCloud and it's like "wew this iPad is connected to this Apple ID" so no matter how many times you put it into DFU mode or recovery, it won't work. You'll never get past it.

True.

I called Apple, they said the only way I could unlock it is if the owner unlocks it, or if I had proof of purchase.

Who wants to make me a receipt? :noh:

If you still need it you can probably use an Amazon receipt with a legit order number.
