Hello,

Please try to activate the iPad . If iPad shows this device is linked with (abc@icloud.com) then it can be removed easily. if shows this device has been lost or stolen then cannot do anything.

Normal Process: Requirement is the POP(Invoice of the device). If you have the bill of this device.

Just call AppleCare they will assist you better. They will remove this within 3 days. Only if device not been stolen or lost.

AppleCare need only device bill and tell them you are unable to activate the iPad.

Thanks

Sorry its not possible, just like an iPhone the iPads can't be unlocked without the Apple ID and the password. Apple did this so people wouldn't steal phones. People where being killed! in the process of the theft. Now its junk! if you are not the owner. Sadly, if you buy a used iPhone or iPad site unseen you could be stung by a thief who realized it was bricked!

by Dan

But I called the owner and the number doaent work and he has a new iPad already and I didn't steal it I found it

For iPad 2,3,4 there is a hardware solution by changing some resistors and by converting from cellular GSM or cellular CDMA to wifi model also possible can be done vice versa which will require to solder GSM board or CDMA board to wifi model.

I bought an ipad 2 from ebay, and it was icloud locked. I even tried the recovery mode but it still didn't work.Watched a video on youtube, and the guy shows you how to bypass the icloud lock. I tried to bypass the icloud lock, and it worked,but you don't get full use of the ipad. But you can still go on Facebook, and the internet.

No... Doesn't work that way. You need some iOS bypass software, there is one for iPhone but it doesn't work with the newer iOS's.
