I have recently gotten an iPhone bought from someone I know.
I know the iPhone is genuin, however, my Apple ID only works on the computer and as I am trying to start up my new iPhone it isnt working?
Are you sure the phone isn't asking for the previous owners info?
Sounds like the person didn't wipe the device first before giving to you. They need to do that with THEIR ID, before you can use yours.
