    I only have the iPhone 5C (that I'm on) and an iMac.

    When I look at my opened pages in iCloud I see what's open on my iMac, but for some reason it's showing a Verizon page on my iPhone?

    I don't have anything like that open. Could it be a possible error with an old device? How do I get rid of it?

    I just checked on my iPhone. Safari doesn't list your current device's open pages, only other devices.

    So this means that at some point you had another iPhone that was connected to your iCloud account. This could have been an old device that you stopped using, a phone you sent in for repair, etc. This device had a page for Verizon on its open tabs, which is why it is being displayed.

    To get rid of it, you would have to sign on to your Apple account, and remove the old device.

    It will remove itself after about a week. I wish Apple would add a way to manually remove it sooner.

    So I went to Apple last week and they restored my iPhone. I went onto iCloud and the only phone listed is iPhone 5C.

    When I look at open tabs though it still shows an "iPhone".

    So annoying. There's no way I can get rid of this.

    Have you tried removing your device from https://supportprofile.apple.com/ ?

    Also, try removing the old device from the iCloud backup http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12792

    Here's the Apple Support Page on it...it will reset after 14 days.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5372?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

    Setting up and using iCloud tabs:

    To remove a tab from the iCloud Tabs list, close that tab in Safari on the supported device that shared the tab. Quitting Safari, putting your device to sleep, or turning your device off will not remove a tab from the list. If you no longer have access to the device that shared the tab, the tab will automatically be cleared from the list after 14 days, if the tab is not updated.
