    I even did another full restore through iTunes to ensure that if I set it up fresh again it wouldn't still prompt for his credentials.

    I am now the proud owner of a white iPad 3 16GB Wifi model running nice and stable 6.1.3! Yay!

    Just a side note: I did call Apple support to inquire about this new security feature, and of course it is in beta still so support is not really expected to assist me with it. But the gentleman I talked to informed me all about it and really cleared up the confusion. It is exactly as scifan57 said in his first response. If you want to sell, trade or gift any iEquipment running iOS 7, you must sign out of your account and deactivate Find my Phone and any features for security before it can be activated by someone else on a restore.

    Pretty good info for anyone who has run the beta on their device and switched back to iOS 6 to sell it.

    Hope you all have a great week!

    Cheers!
