The risk of acquiring an iCloud Locked iPhone is lurking in every online used iPhone purchase.
What will play the most critical role in any iCloud unlock attempt is nothing more than the iCloud status which should be primarily CLEAN.
Let’s see how we can verify the iCloud status of an iPhone (With an iCloud Activation Lock Removal Check Tool), how we can get a guaranteed iCloud unlock when it’s clean, and what our options are in case the iCloud status is lost.
What does iCloud Status Clean mean?
As you have already unfortunately realized, you can not do much with an iCloud Locked iPhone since you are permanently stuck on the Activation Lock screen.
However, what is not directly understood is the iCloud status.
iCloud Status Lost
If, on the other hand, you are faced with one of the following screens then iPhone is officially lost to Apple iCloud Databases.
Consider yourself very lucky if there are contact details of the original owner with whom I suggest that you get in touch as soon as possible otherwise you have very specific options.
Before we even talk about any type of iCloud unlock, what needs to be determined first is the status of iCloud since there is a huge difference between Clean and Lost iCloud Removal.
How to get rid of iCloud lock
A quick online search shows that we have infinite choices, some of which are totally free, but the truth is completely different.
Beware of free Activation Lock Removal tools
Free or not, using any tool that promises to hack iCloud Lock is practically suicide. As far as iCloud Removal is concerned, the iCloud lock is bulletproof.
Apart from the fact that you simply throw away your money, there is a great risk of falling victim of a real hacker, especially if you are dealing with iCloud Unlock software downloads.
iCloud Clean Mode Unlock
The only real iCloud removal service is iCloud IMEI Unlock and it has only one condition: iCloud Status must be clean.
It has nothing to do with the iCloud Hacks I mentioned above, but it’s a great service that will remove iCloud Lock using only the iDevice IMEI number (just click on the i icon on the activation lock screen to find it).
In no more than a week, you will get rid of the lock screen once and for all, as the results are 100% guaranteed according to our tests and guest reviews here at UltraSnow.
Unfortunately, this service is only available for a short time due to frequent iOS security updates, so it is wise to take immediate action as soon as you find one.
You write up has been very informative, continue with your good work.
Please, my question is this:
Which trusted and reliable iCloud unlocking service can you recommend for the unlocking of a clean IMEI?
Thank you for your nice words, they help me to continue write as best as I can!
Now, for your question, unfortunately there is not an iCloud Unlocking service available. They are all fakes! I suggest reading our “Unlock iCloud Activation Lock” article, which will explain you how to initiate an iCloud Lock removal request through Apple and the Original Owner of that iPhone.
I have an iPhone 6 plus. I bought it from a friend of mine. After one month I upgraded and the iPhone became iCloud locked. I am stuck with the first owner’s Apple id.
How can I open the iCloud Lock because I know only its email and I do not know its password?
I did not understand your question. Is this iPhone purchased from a friend of yours? If yes, then please contact him/her and ask him/her to remove this device from his/her iCloud account. If you cannot find him/her, please read the following article to learn how to remove the iCloud Lock from your iPhone through Apple.

I’ve got an iPhone 6+
Find my iPhone: ON
Is that an unlocked iPhone because iCloud and blacklist status is clean?
This means that your iPhone has an iCloud Lock (The Find My iPhone is ON and iCloud status is CLEAN), and the Blacklist status CLEAN means that it is not reported as LOST/STOLEN from a Mobile Network.
This does not mean that your iPhone is UNLOCKED since it does not contain any info about the Carrier status.
If you want to check the network/sim/carrier lock of your iPhone, please get a full iPhone GSX IMEI Check Report.
How do you contact the original owner when he’s buried 6 feet under?
I can send you the link to his obituary, but don’t expect him to answer his email from the other side.
This is a unique case, indeed.
If you have proof about this tragic event, you can contact Apple and inform them.
They should be able to assist you!
