We have had several questions about people buying second hand phones and some have been closed as duplicate.
- How can I bypass Activation Lock?
- How to open iPhone 5c locked with an iCloud account?
- iPhone 5 locked out from previous user
I'm now convinced that we should have at least two questions, possibly three with good votes and great answers to avoid having lots of duplicate posts on this issue. What do people see as a good solution to solve this?
My three canonical questions would be:
- How secure is Activation Lock?
- I know the person (or am the person) that controls the iCloud account that's now locking my device (or one I sold / gave away / donated)?
- I don't know the person that controls the iCloud account locking my device?
Can someone answer or help find / ask these canonical questions on the site and confirm that my thinking is sound here?
