    If you know and control the email in question, you can reset the password for it through Apple's iForgot tool. If you know neither the email or password in question, then I'm afraid you're stuck.

    A jailbreak will not help you bypass the activation lock screen, by design.

    Most cases, user forgets password but not Apple ID. As Orby says, request a reset of password should do it. As for email Apple ID , there are only a few emails u may have used , try each one to see if it works. If you bought this stolen , then it is a paperweight from now on, a deterrent for thieves.
