comment Once I've signed in with a previous owner's Apple ID, then set up iCloud with my own Apple ID, is the activation lock transferred to me?
This question is marked as a duplicate, but it is not. The other question mentions a SIM card, but that's not relevant in this case. The setup process has a two-step questionnaire regarding the iCloud ID, but it's not clear what happens with the iCloud ID you entered once you've bypassed the activation lock. That's the nub of the question.

@Tyson, it's on another iPad, and yes I can.

@IconDaemon it is using mine, yes. It's not clear to me that the activation lock ID and the iCloud ID are the same thing, though.

I can't get that far. I'm in the welcome/setup process screens.

@Tetsuijin, how would I reset it? I am seeing the welcome/setup process screen, there appears to be no option to do that. If I don't connect it to Wifi or iTunes, it refuses to proceed; when I do, it asks for the Apple ID.
