How to unlock a Apple iphone 4s 8gb

  ponytail 16:55 18 Oct 2018

My wife has changed her phone and wants to sell her Apple phone to a friends son but it is locked.Can someone tell me the procedure to unlock it.I dont know much about Apple phones but know it uses icloud.I have been told to sign into icloud then go to settings and do a factory reset then sign out of icloud again and that should clear it.Is that anything like I need to do.

Surely she will be using the same iCloud Account with her new phone. That is not what you need to remove.

I think, but am not sure

She does not have icloud on her new phone as it is a Samsung

If your Apple iPhone is locked, resulting in the fact that you can’t update apps or make new purchases on the App Store or the iCloud Store, then you’ll have to Contact Apple Support or visit an Apple Store.

Did you follow the procedure in my link of 18 Oct 17.38?

You do not need to delete the I cloud account in case you need it for a future iPhone or iPad - simply sign out of i cloud on the 4s, and stop "Find my iPhone". Follow the steps in the link. Cannot understand why you wanted to get the back off! SIM comes out when you put a paper clip diameter pin in the hole near it

This is the easiest way to remove an iCloud account on your iPhone.

Hi, Hope this help for you. First open your mobile and then choose your language. Then after it shows you only emergency dialings.dial your mobile id number in the emergency call.After that press dial button and switch button togeather. then after that you will see slide to power off. But you have to cancel it. Then, it shows to create new account. Hope this works for you i tried this when my mobile locked. so, im sharing this useful information to you.
