    So I brought my phone to Apple because the battery was acting up, they were going to replace the battery, but apparently they broke something in the process, I think it was the display cable. So they gave me a replacement. When the genius brought it out, he had the old phone and the display would't come on. He restored it with iTunes to make sure all my data was off of it, but I never signed out of iCloud/iMessage, is that going to cause issues?

    Everything seems to be working fine on this end, but if someone gets my old phone at some point will they get my messages? lol

    Just remove it under manage devices in iTunes.

    I looked there. It had two iPhones listed. One said "Todd's iPhone" which was registered today, and one just said "iPhone." But that one was greyed out and wouldn't let me delete it.

    Will it really cause an issue?

    I'll look when I get home. I was more worried about iMessage and stuff, with all the issues people have with old devices still getting messages. I guess it will be ok though, does the restore process sign everything out automatically?

    Yep you should be ok. But if you are worried you can always sign off devices you are not using on the icloud.com page under settings and my devices.
