IPAD iCloud issues

    My boss gave me his IPAD 4th gen to have a look at, the device isn't connected to the internet either through a sim or wifi. As soon as you open it, a message jumps up to log in to iCloud, as its not connected to the internet, it won't accept the password.
    The main problem is that this message jumps up every 3 seconds, so its impossible to do anything with the IPAD, pressing cancel or OK doesnt help, and trying to reset the password doesnt help as it says that its not connected to the internet.
    I have also tried connecting it to iTunes and reinstalling everything, but since IOS 7, you cant do that without deactivating Find My iPhone, and of course i can't do that without getting past the annoying pop up messages!
    Has anyone seen this sort of garbage before? Any solutions?

    If you don't mind loosing anything on it put it in DFU and restore then. Load of videos on YouTube for DFU.

    You will probably need his iTunes password or maybe iCloud afterwords to activate it. Should let you connect to wifi first though.

    Thank you guil. That worked, i didn't activate iCloud as i really don't see the purpose of it.

    iCloud will backup the device so you won't lose anything if you lose your iPad, and it also allow Find My iPad, which again, is great if you lose it. Worth enabling because you'll be cursing yourself if you ever lose it.
