Hello =)

i have bought a iPhone 7 Plus and only to find out that i cant use it, because it asks for the previous owners Apple ID and he doesnt pick up he's phone or answer on my text messages when i ask for the Apple ID and password, so my question is if anyone knows how to remove the Apple ID so i can use the phone that i just bought ?

Best regards Boss =)

I'd take it back to the guys you bought it from.

What you have come up against is Apples Security, Anti Theft, Stuff.

If you remember the FBI wanted to access an iPhone in a criminal investigation. Apple declined to assist and it was later reported that a private company had done so but destroyed the iPhone in the process.

Since the previous owner sold the iPhone to you, I assume that he don't want the data inside anymore. So you can use TunesKit iOS System Recovery to do a so-called advance restore, which it's a factory reset.This restore doesn't need password or authorization at all. You can also check How to Factory Reset iPhone 6to get more info. Hope it helps.
