iCloud: Remove your device.
How would it drain your battery?
All you have to do is remove the device from your iCloud account.
Nothing will happen to you. You will be fine.
It will just erase that phone next time it connects online.
Yes, most likely.
Sorry for them
You should always erase the device completely before selling it.
The ones that have been wiped just show up because you never removed them, you cannot do a wipe on them as the phone is no longer signed into your apple account under your name. Once someone else signs in with there apple id they become the phones new master.
Remember that Apple added in an "extra" security step.
You Must erase your @me email account and THEN erase all content and settings...iy seems many are forgetting this step...hence phones are still appearing.
Or simply turn off 'Find My Phone' in your iCloud account settings before erasing all content and settings...
If these sold/traded in devices were on iOS 6 or earlier, than if you wiped the device, but didn't manually remove your iCloud account, you would need to manually remove it from Find My iPhone (in which case clicking the Erase option does nothing).
The real question should be...Why would you ever use Gazelle?
He's not the one with strangers running around with phones appearing on your account.
Those extra steps are no longer necessary. All you need to do is erase all contents and settings and the phone is removed from your iCloud account, Find My Phone disabled, etc.
