    Question : I bought a apple watch 3 on ebay( seller in GA)
    The watch looks reset. When I tried to pair it with my phone( I am in MN) ,
    It come to a page with title " Activation Lock"
    verbiage "This Apple Watch is linked to an Apple ID. Enter the Apple ID and password that were used to set up this Apple Watch."

    "b*****@y****.com " ( this is not my apple id)

    How can i link it to my phone, without shipping the phone back to the seller to unparing it.
    Can we do a remote unparing?

    Thanks in advance

    Unless the person to whom account the Watch is locked intervenes, there's nothing you can do. Period.

    Contact the seller and tell them to hit unpair in the Watch app on the phone.
    If he already did that, tell him he has to remove the watch from his iCloud account under Settings > iCloud.

    If the seller does that, you can perform a reset on the watch and be able to pair it to your own iPhone.

    Ebay has protection plan. If you can’t get the seller to unlock the phone Ebay can get you a refund and u can send the watch back
    I never deal with an ebayer who doesn’t have longevity being an eBay member. And I definitely read reviews.
