Work through your clerk to contact the Global Service Center. They will be able to help you unlock the device for your own personal use.

It takes up to 14 days after you return from your mission for the command to comedown to your device. Make sure your data is off the device.

My iPad is still locked by the church from when I got home, is there a way to get it reset?

I have a missionary out in the field and his iPad was left on top of his car and run over by other cars when it fell off.
Is there any insurance on the iPad for damage? Or do I get to pay the $81 fee and then buy him another $380 iPad??
If I have to do that, is there any way to get insurance on the next one???
They make kids (their parents mostly) buy them and if anyone knows a kid with a phone, you NEED the insurance plan!

The church doesn't not have insurance on missionary iPads/tablets. However, in the new android tablet program (my mission had it rolled out to them 9 months ago), missionaries can buy their Samsung S2 tablets with insurance from the place of purchase.

My mission office has a loaner program for missionaries that can't afford, or can't afford to replace, an iPad/S2 tablet. The missionary can borrow a tablet from the mission office.

That being said, you will need to contact the mission office of your Missionary's mission for more details about your options. You likely have more than you think! Please reply if this helps, or if you have any other questions.

I love it when the original post's author never says "it worked!" :P
