Bypass Activation Lock With iCloud Removal Service

Apple introduced the anti-theft feature in iOS 7 named Activation Lock to Find My iPhone service, which ties your iPhone with your Apple ID, so that a lost or stolen phone can’t be restored or used without login credentials.

This feature has been quite effective; law enforcement agencies reported in the US that the feature has helped in reducing iPhone related theft in major cities. There were several cases where users purchased second hand iPhones, but couldn’t use it because the previous owners didn’t turn of Find my iPhone before shipping the device.

A company called ChronicUnlocks has lately announced a new iCloud removal tool where users would be able to secure the Activation Lock security feature. The service is priced at $149.99.
This will remove iCloud Lock for anyone who has a device stuck on it, whether you are locked out of your own unit (and are in a place like Saudi Arabia which has no Apple Store to present invoice), or you bought a unit second hand from a seller who didn’t remove their iCloud login from.
The service will allow users who have purchased used iPhones connected to the iCloud accounts of previous owners, and are not able to contact sellers to disable the feature on a remote basis. The company says they won’t remove the Activation feature for devices that is in ‘Lost Mode’ to ensure they don’t let users activate stolen or lost devices.
We will NOT remove iCloud from a unit in “Lost Mode”, meaning that the login area of the “Activate iPhone” screen has a Message From The Owner place, usually asking to call the number. This is serious, we can not see this on our end (without incurring cost) but our supplier will see this and refuse to refund if you ignore this rule. We will also make sure to attempt to retrieve the number from the database and will call it with your information if you do this. Again, very serious. Email if you have questions about this. 
A couple of hackers said in May that they had bypassed Activation Lock, the anti-theft protection measure. It looks as if Apple didn’t patch the update in iOS 7.0.2.
