Hello, nanabuzz.

Welcome to Apple Support Communities.

It's my understanding that the Apple ID you've provided cannot be used to unlock this iPad. This sounds like the iPad is activation locked and I have some articles that may help. You'll need the Apple ID and password that was used when the iPad was first set up. Check out this article for more help:

Let me know if this helps.

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
