Hi

I sold my iphone 4S on ebay last week..it arrived to them today.

I restored the phone to the point where you have to do a new set up..or so i thought.

Just looked at my ipad and iphone 5. A message popped up with the person who has bought the phones email. I couldn't read it quick enough but I think it was access to my imessages?

Does anyone know what I've done here.

I dont want someone having access to my emails ..contacts..messages.photos

I changed my apple account password ..and my gmail.

Im wondering if they have restored from a icloud backup of mine?

I have no idea what is going on!!:eek::confused:

Your fine. If you erased all settings then that's that. No one can access iCloud from that point without a password to restore from back up. Die you buy a new phone? If your new phone has the same number and the same carrier your old sim is dead if you didn't take it out. Also if you don't think it erased log into iCloud.com and find my iPhone app. If it still shows up then you know you screwed up and you can just remotely erase it from there.
