    Tom, age 53, lifelong Windows user since computers first showed (pre-hard drive) up in the home.

    I owned a iPad back in 2010, screwed up, sold it for pennies on the dollar. Stupid mistake.

    Considering switching my entire home over to Apple products. As it is now, I have netbooks in areas like the livingroom for the tv (can control internet, vidcalls, music, Hulu+ and alot more), one in the kitchen for recipes and cooking, a tablet in all 3 bedrooms (communications between rooms in the house, and each also has skype communications programs, as well as software that can be used for security inside/outside my home (recording images using motion sensors and then uploads images to a secure site). I have also created a 6TB file server and digitized all my music & movies, boxsets and television on VHS, CD/DVD that can be accessed from any room in the house.

    But there is still so much I want to be able to do. So I am starting out with an iPad. But thats the rub... I bought a used iPad 2 (Wi-Fi) 16GB, wiped it, and found it locked to adead girls account:


    with Apple absolutely and completely unable or unwilling to do anything about, both of which is unacceptable. And before you ask, I got it legitably and in good faith. But if I can bypass the ios 7 icloud activation screen, I can continue my research into what can and cannot be done using Apple products around the home. As a main server I was thinking of using a sup'd up iMac with a external storage of 12-16TB.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    That's quite a setup you have!

    As far as your iPad is concerned, as Scifan has responded to you on your other thread on this issue, there is nothing that can be done without the previous owner's Apple ID and password. Sorry, that it's not a good result for you.
