    Do you have a SIM? That is to activate your cell service with the carrier.

    No, no SIM card. It says all these weird things when you do click on it... it says it's a 3rd party app and some other crazy things about accessing otherb peoples devices

    What kind of weird things?

    Can you provide screen shots of the sequence of events when you select that?

    I'd be very surprised that your stock Settings app includes a function that takes you to something nefarious...and it would be difficult (and would require a rooted device) to have something hijack (replace) the Settings app to do this.

    You're not rooted are you?

    Here's a couple things I can still get into, however i can't activate as my bf disabled a few things that make it run. And idk anything about this kinda stuff.

    And i tried an app to unroot my phone as we thought it might have been rooted, it states my phone isn't rooted...

    What exactly did you press / touch to get that screen?

    Those images are just a copyright notice for a diff(erence) utility that I'm sure is harmless...

    This really isn't what it was before, I'm tempted to restore everything that was disabled so i can show you all

    I bet your phone has been rooted before and then restored is this a brand labeled phone like AT&T T-Mobile or is that unlocked or something

    If you are really concerned, you can always flash back to stock.
