I just upgraded to an iPhone 6 Plus after 3 years with the 4S. To update and restore the items from my 4S I had to first turn off my 4S then setup & restore my data onto the iPhone 6 Plus. It looks like I restored all items correctly, including my photos, contacts, apps, etc. so I now want to reset & erase my personal data from my iPhone 4S so I can donate or get credit for it.
I was surprised when I turned my 4S back on that it still had service (both 3G & wi-fi). It also downloaded all emails that accumulated while my 4S was off. Before I reset/erase my data from my 4S, I have a couple of questions:
Can anyone help with my questions and provide any additional information in making sure my 4S is completely erased.
Here I am to save the day Atombrew! I can help ensure that your iPhone 4s is completely erased. First, I would suggest verifying that you are logged out of your Apple ID and iCloud account on the device in Settings. The next step would be to turn Find My iPhone off, as this is connected to your iCloud account. Werr these steps were taken before a factory reset?
