I was able to do the hard restore and thought that would do the trick.  However, the ipad is still linked to the prior owner's email/apple account and I can't activate it.  I haven't been able to get hold of him.  How do I get my ipad set up?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Cherriej63...|activate-ipadunable-contact-prior-owner
