Intro: iCloud Lock & How to get iCloud Contact Information
iCloud Lock and Find My iPhone were introduced to Apple community with iOS 7 (2013). Since the beginning, they were proved to be great security measurement when someone loses the iPhone or if the iPhone gets stolen because:
- An iPhone needs the original owner’s Apple ID and password in order to activate it
- The original owner can locate his/her iPhone by using the Find My iPhone feature
So why someone would risk stealing an iPhone if he/she is not able to use it or he/she even may get caught?
The answer is easy! Because the thief can always use an online store, like eBay, Amazon or Craigslist, or even a local store and pretend that he/she is the original owner and sell it through them. They can’t really determine if he/she is the original owner and this is how you ended up with an iCloud Locked iPhone. And of course, this is why you are stuck in iCloud Activation Screen
iCloud Activation Lock Screen and Original owner’s information
So, when you turn on an iCloud Locked iPhone the only thing you see is the iCloud Activation Screen:
- It will ask the original owner’s Apple ID and password
- It will tell you that the iPhone is LOST. STOLEN or ERASED
- It may have some message from the original owner with contact information (like an email or a phone number) in order to get in touch with him or her!
- So what happen if the original owner didn’t leave a message with his/her contact info?
- Why is it so important to know how to get iCloud Contact Information?
”Simply because ONLY the original owner can disable the iCloud Lock and Find my iPhone”
The online or local stores don’t know who the original owner is and Apple won’t share his/her personal contact data with them or you. But you really need to know How to get iCloud Contact Information!
