Hello,
I look forward to helping you today.

What does it say on the iPhone screen? Is it asking you to create an Apple ID or is it asking for you to sign into a pre-existing one?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.
Thank you,
Jason

I’m activation lock say the this iPhone is linked to a Apple ID
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 7 months ago

So the iPhone is used, I assume. That means that whoever sold the phone to you has it locked. The only person in the world that can unlock the phone is the person who owns that Apple ID. Even Apple cannot help you. Can you contact the person who sold you this locked phone and request that they unlock it? They can log into the Apple ID on their end and then choose to remove the phone from their account or they can give you the password ***** Is that possible?

I got not contact with that person so I was hoping you can unlocked
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 7 months ago

Nobody in the world can unlock it because Apple's security is very high. The only possible way to unlock it is to contact the person and ask them to unlock it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
