I did almost nothing to prevent iCloud from wiping my device, after having programmed it to do so.
After turning on the iPhone, I just used AirPlane mode, removed the phone from my devices in iCloud, made a simple syn with iTunes (everything in the cloud) and voilà, iPhone is back to iCloud list, and can be normally tracked again.

This I found very usefull as I am nearing sane predicament ! I actually found my lost IPhone after 48 hrs. It was snatched in my handbag and when I run to my house and used " Find my phone" it tracked to a church yard! Someone & the police went off to find it but no success it was dark and after midnight! After 2am battery run out so the tracking turned to Grey after 24 hrs. I went next morning and combed the bushes to no avail although I found some stuff letters etc that were in my handbag. But as I had also lost my house keys and car keys I was disappointed not to find the important stuff. I knew iphone must be in in vicinity & the thief would hardly go back after 2am at night! So following day I went for a final look and found my handbag hanging off a Bush! I had not looked up before believing it on the ground! Believe it or not my iPhone plus a mobile charger and keys were still in the handbag! Could not believe my luck ! Only my diary ( which would have been great to find) must be there somewhere and wallet with Driving License were not there! I believe thief was only interested in the cash!! Very little there!
Anyway have just pressed x in iCloud and am waiting phone to charge. It had been in the rain so hope it works. I left it to dry out for 24 hrs. I noticed on pressing x they " Erase iphone" is back to original ! So it looks hopefull
i will follow your method and see what happens! Thanks it was great advise all of you ,

Happy to report my Iphone is on with all previous data intact! ! Maybe you pressed erase Devise and not the "x" as explained above as I nearly did. Or maybe you have not turned on " find my IPad" in settings !
