Update! The iphone is now connected to my iCloud a/c and all the previous owner’s data is removed.
Yesterday, in response from a message on the phone that its OS should be updated I connected it to my laptop and signed into iTunes. The small phone icon that was displayed at the top left of the page when I set up my partner’s ‘new’ iphone via a separate a/c with his iCloud ID, did not display when I connected my ‘new’ iPhone. Nothing appeared to be happening so after trying to get the phone to appear, I disconnected it.
Apparently it was busy D/L all my contacts from the laptop, which I didn’t want it to do as I wanted to install ‘Telstra Device Care’ and upload the Contacts from my old iPhone to my computer and D/L them onto my ‘new’ phone. (My iPhone list is much shorter, as I don’t want every friend, relative, colleague, business, or government contact from here or overseas on the phone.)
I can only guess I had missed turning off ‘sync this phone’ or some such directive.
Now everything is turned off other than Clock, Contacts, Find iPhone, Maps, Safari, Settings and Weather.
I have two questions, please:
Is there a way to set Location Services so apps such as Maps and Get Directions, will respond when I click their icons on the Home screen? It is mentioned in settings as an option to come on only when an app requiring it is in use, but gives no directions on how to do it.
If I click ‘Delete contacts on this iphone’ is that all it will do? That won’t take them off my computer? They are not stored on iCloud.
Should I set up a third User a/c on my laptop to transfer the contacts I want via the Telstra app so I don’t accidently mess up anything ?
I’d sincerely welcome some clarification please.
