    If you're talking about iCloud Activation Lock, there's no way to bypass it. The only way past the Activation Lock is to input the Apple ID and password of the original owner. If you're in contact with the original owner, he can disable Find My iPhone remotely which will remove the Activation Lock. If you don't know who the original owner is and can't contact him, you'll, unfortunately, be stuck with an expensive paperweight.

    BTW, I've deleted the second thread on this same topic which you started in the Jailbreaking Forum as our rules only allow a member to post one thread per topic.

    Was this from trying to enter the wrong password too many times?
    If you bought this iPhone as a working iPhone from eBay, they have excellent buyer protection which will get you a full refund if the seller did not correctly describe the iPhone as Activation Locked. If you paid with PayPal, they also have excellent buyer protection as do credit card companies, with their chargeback rules.

    Before you hand over your money, connect the iPhone to iTunes on your computer and attempt to restore it. If you get a pop up asking you to turn Find my iPhone off, the iPhone is Activation Locked. If the seller won't help you, walk away from the sale. If you're able to restore the iPhone, it's not Activation Locked and you'll be able to set it up and use it. There's one final caution, though. If the iPhone has been blacklisted it can't connect to any cellular carrier and be used as a phone. Phones are usually blacklisted after being lost or stolen. It's not unknown for a shady seller to get a phone blacklisted after selling it in order to collect on the insurance.

    Yes, there is usually a reason someone sells a high end product at an unusually low price.
