    My sister said her x husband purposly got on their joined account and changed the password and now the iphone is activation locked. She gave it to me. I understand that currently there isn't anyway around it.

    But, what I'm asking, is the phone worth holding on to? Is someone developing away to get past this? Or should I just sell the iPhone for parts?

    Without the Apple ID to activate, the phone is a paper weight.

    I doubt it. Pretty sure there would be some legal issues.

    Isn't it technically illegal to jailbreak them in the first place? I guess I'll probably just sell it while it's worth something.

    No, jailbreaking is not illegal.

    It can be used in some overseas markets, you may have luck selling it on eBay or something. Most stay away from these types of phones as most have been blacklisted.

    This phone is new. It hasn't been blacklisted. It's clean, it was just working until we restored it. lol

    Thanks for all the help. Honestly, it looks like people are finding some type of work arounds for it. But nothing solid yet.

    Assuming it's server side. I doubt that it will ever be done. I think i'll just sell.
