    I recently went thru a bad relationship that ended in an even worse breakup. And I screwed myself over with some bills that are in my name that he paid because he wanted the services but didn't have a clean credit history to do so in his own name. Now I'm stuck with the balance of those bills and I cant do anything about but pay them off or risk getting bad credit myself (lesson learned). His iPhone 5s that he already had before we were a couple, went missing the same night of our breakup but he is certain it was when he was out with friends. So he reported it stolen.


    Yes a small part of me feels like a complete asshole because I know its wrong, but most of me feels better that I at least got some kind of revenge.


    Anyways, I don't want to use it as a cell phone, I only want to give it to my daughter to use as an iPod. I took the sim out and destroyed it right away. But the phone is password protected so the only thing I can do is turn it on and then I get the password screen. Is there anyway to completely wipe the phone and just use it as an iPod? Is that possible or should I just smash it with a hammer because its completely useless now?

    He had an icloud account linked to it, so I dont know if this is even possible to do now. Has anyone ever been able to do this and use it as an ipod afterwards?

    if it has an iCloud account linked to it and the phone is reported to be stolen...you can't do anything...there are some forums in which some people say that they can get rid of the linked iCloud, but that is not true...you can wait for the doulci guys to see if their software is good for something, they say that they can get rid of it for free...i don't know though
