It won't let me do anything until I enter their email and password? Is there any way I can go around this so I can actually use it or?
Theres a bypass with a dns server but you can't get past that unless you talk to apple. I tried it before :/
So nothing I can do? It was a good offer that's why I took it but the fact I need this Apple ID is shit, I've tried the whole connect to iTunes and that doesn't work it still asks for it, literally no possible way I can do it?
The iPad could have had Find My iPhone/iPad enabled which is a feature of iCloud. Usually when you sell it you disable it so the next person would have no issues. Most likely the iPad could have been stolen before? So your friend probably purchased it cheap thus sold it cheap.
As the above user said, you can search the DNS bypass via Google or maybe Apple can or can't help....
