iOS7 And Activation Lock Queries

iOS7 is the new software update from Apple and includes a new security measure called ’Activation Lock’, which is linked to ’Find my iPhone’. If the Activation Lock is still activated, the device will be locked to your iCloud account which is only accessible with your Apple ID and password. When we try to test it or resell the device, we will be unable to access any of the iPad or iPhone’s functions and the device will become inoperable.

If the Activation Lock is still activated, the device will be locked to your iCloud account, which is only accessible with your Apple ID and password. When we try to test it or resell the device, we will be unable to access any of the iPad or iPhones functions and the device will become inoperable. Therefore, we won’t be able to offer the full price for it as the device will be locked to your Apple ID and we will be unable to access the iPhone or iPad’s functions.

You still need to remove your iCloud account and you can do this using a computer following these step by step instructions

If the Activation Lock is not removed then we won’t be able to offer you the full price. You may request to have your device returned free of charge within the specified time period.

If you have an iPhone 4 or above or an iPad 2 or above then you may have downloaded the iOS7 software update. If you have a newer Apple device (e.g. iPhone 5s) then your device will automatically have it installed. To find out which iOS version your device is running, please go to: Settings > General > About > Version

Don’t worry. You can still remove your iCloud account or deactivate your Activation Lock remotely by following these step by step instructions

If it doesn’t arrive in that time and you need another, you can request one in the My Account section of the site. Log in to My Account and select the “order sale pack” option.
If your mobile phone/device is worth $0.00, we don’t send a sales pack. Simply, print and use the label from the website.

Packages must be taken to the local post office and handed in at the counter.

Wrap it in 1cm of cushioning e.g. bubble wrap and take it to your nearest AusPost and make sure you get your tracking number, you could use the packaging that we provide, your original box or anything that makes it strong and rigid so it doesn’t move about.
