    It cannot be bypassed at this time.
    I won't say never, but it was designed as a security and anti-theft measure, and at this point in time cannot be bypassed.

    There really is nothing you can do to bypass the activation screen as you are hoping to do. This is the new security measures Apple has taken to make sure the real person who owns the phone what they need to know to get through it. Contact the seller and ask fore their help or simply tell them you are going to return it and expect your money back as quick as you received the phone when he got your money. Hopefully you will get the money or what you need to unlock it.

    If you legitimately bought it from someone, contact that person so that they can deactivate the Find My iPhone lock...should be pretty effortless if you bought it properly and the person didn't steal it that you bought it from.

    I'm just going to go out on a limb though and say that you don't want to hear that...so enjoy your i-Paper Weight.
