iCloud / Find my iPhone and Google / Samsung Account Locks

We require that each device sent to us has the iCloud / Find my iPhone removed prior to diagnostics starting.

If your device arrives with the iCloud / Find my iPhone turned ON, then any diagnostics will be placed on hold pending account removal.

The account can be removed on the device and if it does not power on it can be removed remotely from a computer as per the below guide.

Android / Google Activation Lock
You can remove the google activation lock from your device both on the device itself or online if the device no longer turns on or is no longer in your possession, for more information see here (If this does not work for you please contact Google directly):
