I bought an iPad on eBay and the owner will not remove it from the m their sprint account. Try to contact the seller without any luck. Even when data still active, I don't want to use some else's data and sprint won't cancel their service or unlock it to use at another network. I was thinking on buying a logic board the one I found has a clean IMEI but Is iCloud lock. I just want to know if the iCloud block will be transfer with the logic board?

by

The logic board is equivalent to the "computer" that the various peripherals plug in to, and so it follows that the iCloud lock will stay on the logic board regardless of whatever "peripherals" are connected to it.

What do you need help with? The iCloud activation lock will follow the logic board.

Replacing your logic board would make your iphone 5 a completely new iphone 5 or at least a different iphone 5. If you forgot your pass code you can turn the phone off, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes and restore.

With iOS 7 and Passcode lock, replacing the Logic Board or having the previous owner unlock the phone are your only alternatives.

you can buy legit clean affordable logics off of ebay for every model iPhone then just take it in to your local iPhone repair shop and they'll do all the heavy lifting for around 30-45 bucks! beats buying a entirely different device despite the controversy

What is the difference if any between "Logic board" and "motherboard"?

I have IPHONE 6 plus iCloud locked and need it removed. In order to do so, do I need to replace both or just one of these?

Or what do I need to do? Please help!!!
