    Dude please be specific on your tutorials and indicate that this will only work for iphone 4 (NOT WORKING FOR iphone 4s /5 /5c /5s). And those who want to bypass the icloud message activation, they might know that even if you bypass that screen you cant use the phone (you will only bypass that shit, but iphone is still locked and you cant use nothing except the camera, contacts and open the facetime) the phone will stay locked and unactivated until you introduce the icloud acount and password from the original owner…
    Dont let you get fooled by other, icloud locked phones are just plastic without icloud id and passwords.

    Before buying any iphone ask the owner to delete his acount from the find my iphone and let free the phone. Next step is to delete data and configuration and insert a valid sim to the phone to activate him without itunes…

    Regards!! and dont buy stealed phones
