    Perform a full DFU restore as new through iTunes. Do not restore from a backup after it completes.

    Maybe she is just telling you that to spook you out a bit. Have you actually seen the info she claims to have?

    If you have Safari and iCloud enabled it'll sync between the desktop or any other iOS 5.x or Lion 10.7.2 devices. All she needs is your iCloud ID & password.

    It hasn't been out for 12 months though.

    Do a full restore and change your iCloud password if you use it.

    PS is you iPhone jailbroken?

    believe me what she has told me is spot on, every thing i have searched for using safari on my phone, and every website i have looked at, i don't know how she has done it, as when i was with her, only until 2 weeks ago, my phone was always with me, unless she had got up in the night and downloaded spyware on it, it sends stuff to her phone, but she wont tell how.

    ----------

    but we are separated and i have changed all my passwords

    Do a restore. Don't jailbreak it and load your apps from the app store.

    Restore & wipe, set up as new, change passwords, get a restraining order.

    Possibly not in that exact order...

    Google keeps a record of your whole life. Does she have your google/gmail/youtube/Google+ password? They're all linked.

    Also, and this is the more important issue here, why does your EX-girlfriend care that you're on a dating site?

    Seriously, try and fix this technical problem, but also tell her to go away and stop calling you.

    Well, here's some fun trouble-shooting:

    Look up nude photos of Actress A on the Mac. Then look up nude photos of Actress B on the iPhone.

    Wait and see which name she uses when she calls to complain.

    Then you'll have narrowed it down somewhat.

    I don't buy it. If it's true, don't do a thing. Look up "how to poison sneaky girlfriend', "how to tell your narcissistic, self centered, selfish, untrusting signifigant others to hit the road'.

    FYI: http://www.mobilespytool.com/

    If you really think she installed something on the phone, do a restore like others have suggested.

    She would have had to have physical access to do it, unless she's Adele Harlow from The Lone Gunmen. In which case, I'd get back together with her immediately. :D

    Phone has to be jailbroken for this to work. She has his apple id or it's BS.

    If she's truly your EX, they why in the F would she care if you looked at a dating site? She's your EX for a reason.
    Sounds more like she's bat shiat crazy to me. Be happy she's your ex. And to piss her off even more, go looking for websites about naked ex-girlfriend pictures. That'll really freak her out.
    When she calls up and screams, calmly explain to her that she's your ex and its none of her business. And any further attempts to contact you will result in harassment charges. She might claim she'll sue you for posting pics of her, just tell her "prove it was me". Then laugh manically and hang up.

    No, see if she's doing this, she's not nice. She's got insecurity issues and you can't fix them for her.

    Sorry, but this is the most important thing you need to do. Google stores all searches and visits you make, forever. You'll have to disable it.

    CLEARING BROWSING HISTORY WILL NOT HELP

    YOU MUST DISABLE GOOGLE WEB HISTORY
