    I would try to get back on touch with person you bought it from. Otherwise it's a paperweight. Sorry

    Apple added the Activation Lock to iOS 7 to combat the rampant unauthorized reselling of lost/stolen devices. There is no way around this lockout… your only options are to contact the person you bought it from and get (1) the Apple ID login credentials, or (2) your money back. If you bought it from an honest/legitimate seller, they’ll help you out. If you bought a stolen device from a scumbag, you are simply SOL, and you now own a pretty, albeit expensive, paperweight.

    You may have purchased it not knowing that it was lost or stolen. But now you know. Do the right thing.
