  Posted by Guest - What Does Icloud Locked Mean On Iphone? :
What does it mean when they say the iphone is icloud locked. I see alot of cheap iphones that I can buy online but many of them describe the phone as icloud locked. The prices are really good though but it concerns me that they are this cheap and can I buy the iphone and remove any icloud lock on it?

Guest Says:
Iphones have built in security and its called icloud lock. This is a GREAT feature iphones have, and what this does is if your iphone gets stolen and someone else tries to wipe or reset the iphone back to factory, they cant do it. It will require the icloud password of the original owner, which means you are stuck.  DO NOT BUY an iphone that is icloud locked! You will not get past it and you will end up with a paper weight.

If people are selling it that way then it means its stolen because otherwise they would put their password in and wipe it so they can sell the iphone for a higher price! They might have a bunch of excuses why its icloud locked, but you can bet its stolen and they are making excuses.

If you know the original owner they you can give them the iphone and they can enter their password, and that will wipe it, then you can set it up as your own.  The other thing is you cannot turn off find my iphone either, which means the original owner can see on the map where the iphone is located, and it will show your house and it may look like you are the one who stole it.  The icloud password is needed just to be able to turn off find my iphone so buyer beware. These are great features if you are the owner of an iphone though.

I gave the man who was trying to sell the iPhone 6 he just bought for  $450.00 for only  $1.00 dollar. The address of where I saw the add and it had been removed, I guess my other reply helped get a scam removed .

Guest Says:
Those are typically scams where they say they can unlock your iphone for $, so you pay the money and its going to china or russia, etc, then you never hear from them again.

Guest Says:
Dont forget that an icloud locked phone can also be tracked by the original iphone user. You cant turn off find my iphone and you cant wipe the phone without their icloud password, so the owner can see the last location when you turn it on, so it may show them your house.  

I like that feature by the way but if its not yours then thats a problem. :)   Always make sure its wiped before ever buying a new one.

Uj Says:
Can't we call or msg ..... Or cant we do anything..if iphone is icloud locked

Guest Says:
UJ, no, if its icloud locked then that iphone is pretty much useless (unless you can have the previous owner wipe it clean of course, then you can set it up as your own).

When you turn the iphone on it will ask for the iCloud account details (i.e. username and password). If you dont know it then you never get past that screen and you cannot do anything with that iphone until you have that information.

This means no phone calls, no texts, you wont even get to that part of the screen. The rule of thumb is before buying any used iphone you should make sure the seller has cleared the icloud lock, and if they give you any type of excuse why they cant do it, then obviously its stolen.

Guest Says:
What people are forgetting is with icloud you can track your iphone on the map. You cant get rid of that capability and you cannot wipe the phone without the icloud password.
If you turn the iphone on, you are notifying them on where exactly the iphone is located.  That alone is a great deterent to stealing iphones.
