no
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It shows activation lock screen
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 month ago

Ok this means the phone is locked still under your old ID and password. You have to enter that to unlock the phone.

I have no record that and that is where I sit frustrated.
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 month ago

It is an anti-theft so there is no workaround. There is a team Apple has that can reset the antitheft but it requires documents like the original proof of purchase and others.

No problem. If you were the original purchaser of the iPhone you could either to an Apple Store (make a Genius Bar appointment if you do) or by contacting iTunes Support online (http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/) they can remove the iPhone from the account - they are likely to want to see proof of ownership before they might help e.g. original receipt with the serial number on it
