    You can choose not to activate icloud when you set up your device for the first time. Also, you Apple ID doesn't have to be tied to iCloud.

    You’re screwed.

    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 option is to enter the correct password. If you cannot, you are simply SOL, and you now own a pretty, albeit expensive, paperweight.

    If the device is truly yours (or your buddy's), use the link (https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid) to reset the login.

    You can have your friend contact Apple Support for a password reset and then he can remove the account from the phone so you can activate your own.

    I find it interesting that problems like this always start with "getting a gift from a friend", or " I bought a iPhone".
    Be honest with yourself, you were either given, bought, or stole a stolen iPhone ...

    Look up Doulci, I've always wanted to try it, but I don't have an iCloud locked device and I don't want to reset my own devices.
    On iPhone 4 there is still the limera1n exploit and it can be used to establish a connection between a pc and the iphone using ssh. After you connect it, you can simply navigate to the system app folder and delete setup.app. This only works on the iPhone 4 and maybe on the iPad 2, I'm afraid.
