Glad it is working, it was a forgone conclusion that Apple would
have to
fix it,

Not at all. No where on the planet is there a law that compels
Apple to
unlock a device without proof of ownership.

Wrong.
https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/consumer-rights-guarantees/consumer-guarantees

Where does it say Apple has to unlock a device that someone has
forgotten their password for?
Smile it is unlocked not withstanding all your crap, QED

Oh right, NO WHERE.

Neither "password" nor "unlock" appears anywhere on that page.

:) it is unlocked not withstanding all your crap, QED
Says absolutely NOTHING about proof of ownership.

Says absolutely nothing about unlocking or bypassing passwords.
Smile it is unlocked not withstanding all your crap, QED

It is unlocked because the owner was able to provide a valid receipt
with a serial number, and for no other reason.

He would not have needed the serial no

He *DID* need a valid receipt with a serial number. His original receipt
was rejected and he was told he had to provide another one. Despite all
your blustering, it was not until after this second receipt was
submitted that Apple did anything, and even then they did not unlock the
previous iCloud account, they simply removed the activation lock on the
iPad so he could set it up with a new account.


He does NOT need a receipt with a serial number on it, he WOULD need to
produce the serial number however.

He *DID* need a receipt with a serial number.


Legally, he doesn’t in this country.

No need.

if someone forgets their password *and* can't answer the security

completely meaningless and easily faked. anyone can create

Yes, but no thief can know that that was done when the device
was setup initially, when the thief steals the ipad years later, so
it is evidence that it can't have been done by a thief of the ipad.

> that's why apple sends a verification email to the email on file,

Which they must have, because Don did use that Apple ID to
setup the ipad initially.

No need to do that years later.

Doesn't matter, he clearly did that when he setup the ipad initially.

Another bare faced lie with the receipt that was provided THREE times.

Which they initially rejected until Apple got
someone with even half a clue onto the job.

He always had that, the Apple ID that was used

No point in doing that years before the ipad needs to be reset.

And a receipt with the serial number it is even easier to fake.

Keep desperately attempting to bullshit and lie your way out of
your predicament and fooling absolutely no one at all, as always.

Pity anyone can fake a receipt with a serial number on it.

Apple always had proof that Don owns that ipad, the
Apple ID he used to set it up contains Don's company
name and since that setup was done years ago, Don
can't be a thief who is trying to claim he owns that
ipad now.

:) it is unlocked not withstanding all your crap, QED
Says absolutely NOTHING about proof of ownership.

Says absolutely nothing about unlocking or bypassing
passwords.
Smile it is unlocked not withstanding all your crap, QED

It is unlocked because the owner was able to provide a valid
receipt
with a serial number, and for no other reason.

He would not have needed the serial no

He *DID* need a valid receipt with a serial number. His original
receipt
was rejected and he was told he had to provide another one.
Despite
all
your blustering, it was not until after this second receipt was
submitted that Apple did anything, and even then they did not
unlock
the
previous iCloud account, they simply removed the activation lock
on
the
iPad so he could set it up with a new account.


He does NOT need a receipt with a serial number on it, he WOULD
need
to
produce the serial number however.

He *DID* need a receipt with a serial number.

Legally, he doesn’t in this country.

Despite all your blustering, you've produced not a shred
of proof to this absurd and ridiculous statement. Not one.

YOU made the pig ignorant claim that that is legally required
in this country.

No. I said that Apple requires proof of ownership to unlock an account.
You claimed that some law in your country compels Apple to unlock
devices without proof of ownership.

I never said that.

You are a lying sack of shit. It's right there IN THE MESSAGE YOU
QUOTED:

Me:
Not at all. Nowhere on the planet is there a law that compels Apple
to unlock a device without proof of ownership.

You:
Wrong.

Fucking worthless troll.


That is saying something quite different, that there
is no mention of proof of ownership there, as I said
after the bit you quoted and have now flagrantly
dishonestly left out of the quoting.

completely meaningless and easily faked. anyone can create
any apple id they want or claim they own any existing apple id.

Yes, but no thief can know that that was done when the device
was setup initially, when the thief steals the ipad years later, so
it is evidence that it can't have been done by a thief of the ipad.

thieves can find out all sorts of stuff about the original owner.


But finding out Don's company name YEARS after he has used it
in the Apple ID to setup an ipad he bought YEARS ago is completely
useless for a thief who wants to steal Don's ipad and then ring
Apple claiming to be Don and get Apple to reset that ipad so
the thief can use it.

And it is completely trivial for Apple to call Don on one
of his company contact numbers and check if it really is
Don that is calling them now to get the ipad reset.

that's why apple sends a verification email to the email on file,

Which they must have, because Don did use that Apple ID to
setup the ipad initially.

he did not know the password to the email account, so he could not verify
it.


No point in verifying it, its got his company name in it.

> that's why apple wanted a receipt.

Which is in fact trivially easy to fake with a serial number printed on it
so that proves absolutely nothing about who the owner of that ipad is.

At this point, can I ask a serious question, and get a sensible answer?

Is there anyone that has an iPad serial on a receipt, and can prove it by posting a masked version (for your own
security), similar to what I have done? See: http://www.dontronics.com/apple.htm

There is so much emphasis on there being a serial number on the receipt.
It must be false, because there is no serial number on it!!!
I had to really push hard to get a serial number on my iPad receipt after 3.5 years, and just wondering what the normal
procedure is.

I have sold electronic items since 1964, and never put a serial number on a receipt for hardware. I have in recent years
for software, as it often ties in with a web delivered product, but never for hardware.

Cheers Don...

all he needs to do is reply to the verification email. he couldn't, so
the next step is an invoice.

apple is not going to release a device that's activation locked with
just a phone call. that's *way* too easy to fake.

you've been given sensible answers. you just don't like them because it
means admitting fault. you'd rather blame others.

receipts either contain a serial number and/or it can be looked up via
the order number.

just because the store from which you bought it failed to do that
doesn't mean other sellers don't. next time, buy from a different
store, or better yet, don't forget your passwords.

Yes, just ignore the fools that keep desperately
claiming that Apple never fucks anything up.

None of mine have. But then I'm not actually stupid
enough to buy stuff from Apple authorised resellers
because of the ripoff prices they charge, not even
with stuff as basic as a lightning cable.

Quote:

It must be false, because there is no serial number on it!!!


And they are so fucking stupid that they don’t even realise
that it is completely trivial to fake one that has, and are so
fucking stupid that they can't bring themselves to admit
that sweet fuck all idevices bought used would ever have
a receipt with a serial number on it.

Quote:

That most sellers don’t have the serial number on their receipts.

Apple authorised resellers may well do, but even Apple
realises that lots of stuff is bought from other than Apple
authorised resellers and that it is in fact illegal in many
jurisdictions for Apple to require that their stuff can only
be bought from Apple authorised resellers.

Quote:

I can't remember the last time I ever got
a receipt that had a serial number on it.
No idevice ever has had one.
