You take the device and the original proof of purchase to Apple. You will need to prove that you are the original owner in order for them to remove the activation lock.

If you can't product proof of purchase, it's a brick. There is no way to bypass the activation lock.

@ KitledTim => Not necessarily... If you've backed it up on your computer with iTunes you might be able to do a restore from your back up!


I've had the same issue with my brother who used my iPhone, he removed the ownership under my appleid and set it up as his device with his appleid! I simply did a hard reset and restore through iTunes and it worked out like a charm...


But I guess it's because it was backed up previously in my computer and in my iTunes and was registered initially under my appleid... if you do not have a back up I think as KiltedTim said, the only solution is Apple shop with a prove of ownership!
