how to reset iphone 4s without apple id password
my friend recently gave me an iPhone. and when I tried to reset it, it still needed his apple Id and password. But, his dad made them and for got the information and security questions. And I have no working sim for it yet because its an at&t phone but I use T-Mobile, so I need the information to activate it.
I am trying to activate imessage on my phone.
I was having some trouble with it so I turned it off but when I tried to activate it it started insisting that my Apple ID/Username is incorrect.
What is strange is that the my phone accepts the apple id/password combo and so does my apple id account online when i login...the issue is that the imessage software refuses it for some reason.
Appreciate your help.
I cant remember my password so I can update my games etc... My apple ID for the apps is email@example.com this is different from my Id for my internet

I had a problem with my notes, I finally ended up resetting my iPhone and it worked. I had to add a few things that were erased because of the reset. The only thing that I cant fix is the voice mail - it needs a password. Obviously my password doesnt work, how do I fix it so I can get my messages?

I had to take my phone in because the camera was broken. I backed up the data on itunes and took the phone into the Apple store. They gave me a new phone and said to just restore it from my latest backup. When I select the restore point to use, itunes asks me for a password. I didnt set a password when I backed up the old phone and iTunes doesnt accept my iTunes account password. How can I get my new phone restored with the backup I did just prior to giving my phone to Apple?
I have promoted iPhones ever since I got my first one! I have converted countless people to iPhones. Now I dont even know where to stick my head when they all tell me that are having the same issues I am having and that they wish they never got an iPhone. How embarrassing for me (Ill own that). More importantly how embarrassing for apple and Jobs name. I cant believe I type all of my text messages and the keys dont even click until after I try hitting the send buttons like 5 times. Right now I have written everything you read and I cant even see what I am typing. Thats how long I have had an iPhone (I dont need to see the keyboard to know what I am typing). A restore in any way never works. I have maybe 20 apps total on my phone, not a lot of music. Why would I put any music on my phone that barely works. I wish I had a refund.
Spotlight search - off
iCloud almost completely disabled
I dont know what else I can do.
I just want to reset that and have that message pop up so I can choose another option.
I have plugged my iphone in, right clicked on iphone, have chosen reset warnings, but cannot get that message to pop back up. Any ideas?
