    Is your phone's UDID registered with his account?

    my guess is it's not...

    The OP will likely need to put his phone into dfu mode, and restore to 6.1.3 or .4

    ​Plug the device into the PC and open iTunes. Press and hold the sleep/awake button and the home button for 10 seconds, then release the sleep/awake button but continue to hold the home button for 15 seconds. You will get a message in iTunes that the device is in recovery mode and needs to be restored.
