iCloud Unlock with Original Owner's assistance
Here is the problem: When the iCloud Activation is ON, it locks you out of the iOS and it will ask you to enter the username and password of the original owner’s iCloud account (Apple ID and Password). On an iPhone with the iCloud Activation Lock enabled, all you can do is  powar on / 0FF the iPhone.

How to unlock / bypass iCloud Activation Lock Screen on iPhone

There are plenty of reason why you should unlock an iPhone locked to iCloud. Some think of it as an iCloud Unlock, but that's not technicaly speaking true. The problem is that an iPhone that is locked with iCloud cannot be activated.
In fact, it can only be activated if you log in with the Apple ID and password that the iPhone is linked to. And once you forget the iCloud password and can’t recover it (Through Apples website), you are in huge trouble. No matter how much you paid for your iPhone, the person who previously log into Apple iCloud can BLOCK you from using it.
Thats why you need to remove the iCloud account from your iPhone if you are buying a used oneeven if you don’t see the Activation Lock Screen. Otherwise, you cannot activate or use the iPhone without fear of getting locked out.
If you see the iCloud Activation Screen and just want to remove iCloud Lock, the best way around is to use the Official and Legal methods that are available, for a successful and permanent iCloud Unlock.
Those iCloud Removal Methods not only allow you to deactivate the Find My iPhone of iPhone, but they can guarante you a safe, secure and, most important, a Legal solution for your iCloud Lock iPhone.
A Quick Summary: Removing iCloud Activation Lock Screen Legally
If you dont want to read the whole this article, here is a quick sumary: I have probably tested all ways to unlock iCloud-locked iPhones. Online and offline. Even mobile (repair) shops don’t know how to get the iCloud Lock removed from an iPhone.
There are plenty of shady iCloud activation unlock services online, so my recomendation is to avoid all of them. They do not work and it is extremely difficult to get your money back!
There are basically 3 ways/methods which are legally approved. The first is the Original Owner of that iPhone (Request his/her permission – Which has very good success rate), the second one is through Apple support (More difficult method, but using the Ready Templates will increase your chances) and the third one, is the combination of the Original Owner and Apple (Which is the best approach).
You can learn more about all those methods from the “How to Legally Unlock iCloud” ebook, which contains real-life examples and all the templates that will increase the chances of unlock the iCloud Locked from your iPhone.

Method #1 to Unlock iCloud: Ask Original Owner to Remove iCloud

The first way to get iPhone iCloud Activation Lock remove is by contacting the original owner of thatt iPhone.

It is very difficult to find the contact details of the original owner because Apple is very restrictive with that information.
What you need is a way to contact the original owner and ask him to unlock the iCloud Activation Lock or with the Apple ID, Original Owner’s full name and a copy of the comunication between you and him-her get help from Apple.
