    I have a used iPad and the setting have been reset but when I try and set it up I get this message:


    This iPad is currently linked to an Apple ID. Sign in with the Apple ID that was used to set up the IPad.


    I have tried to contact the seller but have yet to get a response. Had the iPad for a month now and can't even use it. Is there anyone that knows what I can do?

    Its one of the newer models. It has the newer charger with it.

    Welcome to iPF!

    There's nothing else you can do at the moment but to wait for the seller's reply. The iPad has to be removed from the former owner's iCloud account/Find my iPad. There's no other way to get rid of iCloud's activation lock.

    You'll find the methods to get this done on this site:
