    Get your money back from the "friend" and give him the phone back.

    Hook it up to a laptop then restore it as a new iPhone then it should wipe it clear of everything

    I guess he's really not your friend, after all. Best case, he ripped you off. More likely, he stole somebody's phone and sold it to you. I guess there really is no "best case".

    Okay? I'm not "spreading misinformation" I left an answer that I thought would solve his problem. If it was wrong then fine. It's really not that serious
