Is there any way I can connect my phone to wifi without access to it

okay hi so basically my phone won't turn on and the home button is broken so i cant reset it

i found a page on this site that helped me out the first time that told me to go to icloud and erase the phone off your account

my only problem now is that you need your phone to be connected to the internet for that to work.

so basically; Is there any way I can connect my phone to wifi without actually having access to my phone (preferably via itunes or icloud)

also is it a good idea to remove the iphone from the account or will that mess something up?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Remove the device from your Apple ID / iCloud / Find my iPhone and it will have the activation lock removed like gigabit878 said. The buyer can restore the device when needed.

Show to the buyer (on hand / meetup if preferred) that it has no activation lock via if that is the correct link.

I would just fix the home button

If you do this, take the whole display assembly off, like in the guide. You could damage the logic board if you try it with the display still connected. Or, you could find a local repair shop, they'd probably do it for $30
