    Hey,
    My phone went crazy today. I was syncing wirelessly and a message came on up on iTunes halfway through saying the device could not be read and the phone must be restored etc. Plugging in, rebooting, nothing would fix this. So I did a restore and restored from iCloud.

    Upon restoring from iCloud it was downloading my apps and emails were popping up to authorize to download various apps that are on my phone. However, one email that came up I have never seen in my life. What could this mean? Has someone hacked my account?

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Can you elaborate on what these "emails" were that were popping up, especially the one you'd never seen before?

    For example my Apple ID asked me to input my password to verify my apps so they could install. My father's account popped up asking me to verify and my sister-in-law's popped up asking me to verify as I have apps from all these accounts on my phone. After I verified these a email from a @yahoo.com account popped up asking me to verify. I don't know anyone that uses yahoo and also I went into my iTunes to check the email associated with every app and this email was not listed as the purchaser of any of my apps.

    So why would this email have come up?

    Seems very strange

    Sure does seem strange. And you didn't recognize the email address at all? You could always send an email to that address inquiring as to who they are...

    Has your phone been in anyone else's possession at any time recently? Maybe they logged you out of your iTunes account and logged themselves in, downloaded one or more apps, and then logged themselves out again? Just brainstorming here...

    No, not that I am aware of. I am the only one that uses my phone.

    Well, don't know what to say then. Try sending them an email and see what happens.
