I sold my old iPhone and forgot to delete my icloud account off it first. I deleted my account off my new phone and created another one with a new name. Now when I back up my icloud account I get all the new owners contacts onto my new phone. The new phone is a completely new contract and new number.  HELP. Getting really frustrated by it.

    Remote wipe it with find my iPhone, otherwise they can look at all of your stuff.


    To do this, go to, click find my iPhone, click your iPhone that you sold on the map, and click remote wipe.
