In order to use the iPhone with a different Apple ID the previous user would need to sign out on that 4s (it will ask for the Apple ID password for confirmation) or they can remove it remotely with the steps below if you can contact them to request they do that.

  • Sign in to iCloud.com
  • Go to Find My iPhone
  • Select “All Devices” to open a list of devices linked to their account, and select the device to be removed
  • Click “Remove from Account”

alollis101616,

Making sure you can get into your new phone is crucial. I’m sorry the previous owner did not clear out their Apple ID.  Was the previous owner able to do the steps deloused provided? If not, we do recommend contacting Apple directly to see what else can be done. They can be reached by clicking here https://www.apple.com/contact/
