Mend My iPhone
I have genuine requests each week from clients who need to iCloud unlock a device they've been given by a family member or that they've just plain forgotten the sign-in details for; this often includes access to the very email address they need to reset this information from.
So does anyone know any service provider who can actually and reliably unlock an iCloud lock off an Apple device so that I can at least help some of these poor souls if I know it's a genuine need rather than someone trying to deal with stolen property.

Thanks in advance

Its a interesting subject and Ill be interested to see what others have to say, I have at least two phones here iCloud locked, I know the people, but they either no longer have access to that email address or apple id, for genuine reasons, i.e the kids set it up. Receipts are long gone, I.E 5S and 5C.

Ill be interested if anyone has had any success at all.

I have seen services offered but never tried them as the cost is usually around £100 !!  A lot of money but I guess given the circumstances it may be worth it to some people

There is no legal way to remove an activation lock without going through Apples reset process. Anyone claiming to be able to remotely remove an activation lock are just scammers.

Recently there had been a method in which you can remove the NAND from the iphone logicboard and reprogram it with an unlocked imei. This is obviously highly dubious as you are effectively hijacking someone elses unlocked serial number and using it on a locked device.
You may have noticed that Apple have taken down their activation lock status page where you could check if a phone was locked or not. This is to stop people from using this page as a means of searching for unlocked imei's.

Thanks for confirming that for me. I was just hoping someone somewhere knew a trick. I have some genuinely absent minded customers with expensive bricks sadly from time to time. 
Have a good day and thanks

There was a good way for doing it on non sim card devices (ipad,ipods etc) but thats closed again.  There is also a tricky way to do it on 3g ipads, but ive never tried it.  Search google and you will find answer, (dont want to post as its links else where).

The paid methods are not great and id avoid, unless desperate!!

I hate Icloud, I totally understand the reasons behind it and fully support that.  However there should be a legitimate way to unlock them if original proof of ownership etc was supplied.  OR let people use their iPhone easily without icloud, rather than been integrated with everything.
