Hi, and thank you for asking your question. You will need to manually delete the phone from your iCloud account itself, in order to turn off the "Find my iPhone" feature. May I set up a quick, secure remote session to check the account now? Please reply back using the box below. Thank you.

yes I'm sorry it takes me a while to read ant answer back I have poor eyesight and have been struggling to switch iPhone finder off
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Hmm, I see - absolutely no issues. Please carry out the following steps carefully now, to disable the "Find my iPhone" feature on the broken iPhone: Using a computer (and not a phone/tablet), go to www.icloud.com and sign in to your account with your Apple ID and password. Use the same Apple ID and password ***** to the phone that's broken. Once signed in, click “All Devices” on top center of the screen. Next, click on the broken iPhone that's listed. A new window will appear displaying the device you selected. Ignore it and go to the next step. Back in the center of the screen, you will see that your “All Devices” has now changed to the name of the broken iPhone. Click on this name and a list of the devices will drop down again. This time, you will see an “x” to the right of the broken iPhone. Click the “x.” You will be prompted to remove the device: click “Remove” and you’re done.

Hmm, let's go ahead with a remote session now, so that I can check the screen for you. Are you currently replying to me from a Mac computer?

OK. Let's get started with the remote session now. Please open up the following link:http://www.justanswer.com/remotedesktop/join.aspx?Session=63efdd13-5619-4195-8f29-53cde9400315 On the page that opens up, click "I Agree". Download the remote file when prompted, and then OPEN/RUN the "Elsinore Screen Connect" file downloaded (at the bottom of your browser window.) I'll then be connected. Thank you.

it will be better for me to call you because I'm struggling to read my eyesight is not good
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Hmm, I see. Alternatively, could you kindly provide me with the iCloud login details (email address and password), so that I can check and remove the broken iPhone from your account? Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes that would be better for me thankyou these are the details***@******.***\password ***** I hope you can sort this problem for me
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
OK, thank you - one moment, checking the settings now.
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Okay, there's just one "iPhone" listed - could you confirm if that's the one you need to disable the "Find my iPhone" from?
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
OK, I have removed that iPhone from the iCloud account now - which means that the "Find my iPhone" feature has been automatically disabled for that device as well. This, in turn, will allow the repair reps to unlock the phone and repair it accordingly. If you need further assistance with this issue, please reply back using the box below. I'd appreciate it if you could kindly take a moment to submit a positive rating at the top of this page. Thank you :)
