Jason Boyle:
You really need to contact the person who sold you the iPhone ( hopefully the owner of the iPhone ) and get the password ). You'll need to have an Apple ID for your account. The serial number and the IMEI/MEID number of the phone won't be changed, so you still need to find out about the phone's ownership. If this wasn't a dealer who sold you the phone, but a private individual, you may need to contact eBay to file a complaint if the owner doesn't know the password or want to help you out in any way. If you give the information to Apple, they may be able to steer you in the right direction, or at least know if the phone was reported stolen. You can then contact eBay and file a complaint against the seller. Good luck and I hope you get this mess resolved.
Jason:
apple ID required?

well

sounds like you have a stolen phone there friend

if you know for certain the seller is the owner .. contact them and ask for the password

once thats been done it can be properly reset

if not

you own a neat package of spare parts

though

I did read recently that a phone locked with apple ID can be hacked for a reset

Im not sure what troubles that may cause

stephieSD:
Contact the seller and ask for the password.
However, you should also be able to reset the phone by plugging it into your computer and syncing it to your iTunes account.
Insane_mad_maniak:
you will need to contact the seller, if you cant contact them through email, you can click on 'help' in ebay, and type in 'seller contact details' and you can request the contact information of the seller.

this will list their phone number which you can call to ask for the pass code to unlock the phone, or ask them to remote erase the phone for you if they are connected to icloud.

Plug the phone into itunes and but it into factory mode (you can youtube it) i dont remember
