Hello, first post ever in the assistance of a friend. Not yet an iphone owner myself but am about to bury the ailing bb and get one, so the timing of this first post is exceptional! His phone was lost or stolen a week ago, blocked thru icloud, and now its been recovered. Although we unblocked it thru icloud, the phone remains locked, and only allowing access to make emergency calls, although icloud no longer recognizes it as blocked. somehow i haven't found a solution. Surely this cant be a first... Help? Please? One day I hope I can contribute something meaningful to the forum but for the moment its only questions Hoping to find a solution! Thank you!
