    I'm afraid that without the Apple ID and password of the original owner, there is no way to activate the iPad, iOS 7 activation lock will prevent it.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I'm afraid Scifan is correct, without the Apple ID and password the iPad is unusable.......

    The only solution is to get in touch with the previous owner.

    Please do not post twice on your issue as it divides the information given and makes it confusing for members to follow. It is also against our Forum Rules, your other post has now been deleted.

    That's exactly what we're saying. Without the Apple ID and password of the original owner , that iPad is useless. There's nothing we or anybody can do to help.

    when your customer bought the iPad, he should have checked with the previous owner about the resetting to factory settings so the new owner can register it to himself using his own iTunes account, sounds like a shabby and ill planned buy here

    As noted above, and those posts really do mean to say that: unfortunately your customer has already suffered a total irretrievable loss with that iPad purchase. Unless he is provided with the required ID and password, he will get no further than that message.
    It's a security feature, introduced with the iOS 7.x upgrade, and it seems to be pointless to approach Apple to open up that iPad, no matter the circumstances. There was a case very recently where an elderly mother had willed her iPad to a daughter without recording the ID/password. After her death all kinds of pleadings for sympathy were made to Apple to have the iPad reset to factory settings. They refused to do that despite wide unfavourable publicity. At the same time there were comments in favour of Apple's stance expressing satisfaction that if their iPad was stolen or lost at least no one else will be able to use it. Regrettable in this case, but there it is....

    You're welcome!

    Just wish it was a better outcome for you and your friend

    Just loathe thinking of all these people who have wasted their money because they didn't know about this new security measure....and the thought of all these iPads just being useless now. :(
