Activation Lock issue plagues some iPhone 7 owners

Thankfully, Apple support and employees at the company's Genuis bars in Apple stores have proven understanding of the problem and have managed to resolve the issues. In case your iPhone suddenly acts up, calling Apple or taking the handset to the nearest Genius Bar will be your best bet.
Apple hasn't addressed the issue yet.

This is a way worse than the exploding Note 7 units if you ask me lol Just tried the new 7 today at the mall, and man, I gotta say I loved the new Touch ID button. Too bad iOS aint for me.

"This is a way worse than the exploding Note 7 units if you ask me lol" So you'd rather potentially take a trip to a hospital than to the Apple store. How incredibly stupid. This is easily the dumbest comment you have ever made on this website.

I agree. 1. I think sarcasm for the most part is harder to recognize in writing then in speech per se. 2. All the trolling on this site makes sarcasm even harder to recognize. I know I've miss read posts myself...

Go back to an S7 Edge. Wait for the IPhone 8, or Note 8.

I think the biggest question here is... What email address are they setting to on 1st power-up or factory reset? If it's not the user, what or who's email address is it?! I presume the fix is easy enough by restoring from a cloud back-up, which is great... but where along the line is this erroneous email address being generated? If it's a code placeholder that goes nowhere until a user address is input, then it's all well and good. No harm, no foul. If it's other user email addresses somehow being mis-routed to the wrong device, then Apple programmers are slacking on the job, big time, with buggy code creating questionable security practices. IF... if there's an accessible backdoor email address Apple created that's been hidden up until now... then there is a major issue at Apple.

I'm assuming IF the worst case that these emails aren't computer generated and are "someone's", than it would be the same as trying to access someone's iCloud using your own device - which would be impossible for your everyday Joe. And no, the iCloud and google cloud servers were accessed thru social engineering and phishing processes - which would make my point still valid!
