    You need to restore as new using recovery mode.

    Sounds like you bought a stolen phone...

    Your phone was most likely hacked and/or jailbroken by your friend.

    Almost always means you hacked/jailbroke your phone to unlock it, Apple's servers have detected such, & are preventing your phone from activating. Apple does not support hacking/jailbreaking iPhones.

     

    You can fix, you just can't get help from Apple or here. You'll have to use Google to search for a site that can help you.

    You don't. At least you're not going to get help doing it here.

     

    Discussing hacked/jailbroken phones is forbidden by the terms of service. Get your money back from the "guy" you bought it from.
