Find iphone when turned off

 

Thanks for the info Lisa! It's important to know how to turn it off for me. I manage corporate account, and when a user return a company cell phone when he/she leaves the company without turning it off, then I cannot do the factory reset to clean it out for a next user since it requires iCloud login for the previous user to do that.

My problem: I need to turn off "Find my phone" to do a restore. I cannot turn off "Find My Phone" because I cannot get into "Settings." "Settings" crashes immediately upon touching the icon- a quick flash to a bland gray screen then back to home page. This is the reason I was doing a restore in the first place- to hopefully get my Settings function to work again. I'm in a death spiral. I can't do a restore to repair Settings without turning off "Find My Phone" and I can't turn off FMP without getting into settings. What am I suppose to do?

Thank you for simple, easy to follow instructions...and great use of screenshots! I can't restore my backups without turning this feature off (wasn't required before), and you made it a breeze.

Update 13/03/2017: If you still own an iPhone 6, or are thinking about buying one second hand, should you upgrade now or wait? We say wait. The iPhone 6 is showing its age now as there have been two new iPhones since. While both have a similar design, they brought palpable improvements to the performance, screen and camera.

With big things expected from a possible iPhone 8 in 2017, it's worth waiting to see what Apple launches this year before buying. And, for anyone thinking of buying an iPhone 6 second hand, we'd recommend considering the iPhone SE first.

When it was released in 2014 the iPhone 6 was one of the hottest smartphone on the market. Featuring a completely rethought design, Apple loaded the iPhone 6 with a wealth of custom software and hardware features.
