remove activation lock from iPhone 4

I guess i never signed out of iCloud a few years ago.

trying to restore to factory settings using the apple method by connecting iTunes and force restart, then restore.

Had to use this method because on this phone there is an old apple ID, and i don't remember the password.

I tried to change the ID before i went to this restore method, I couldn't find anywhere to change it.

So I tried to restore via iTunes and i am stuck on Activation Lock.

Problem...  old apple id  ..  apple does not recognize it.

and, forgot password ...  don't know if it wold work anyway

device does not show in iCloud..  so cannot remove it


any ideas?

iPhone 4, iOS 7.1.2
