Thanks Ashik, appreciate your advice.
I have no way of going onto his phone to check whether he has Cydia on it.
He has recently changed his iPhone to the iOS 8.1 and changed his password, I found out he was having a close 'friendship' with someone and having been caught he deleted all her texts and hence I think is tracking me to see if I am going to see a solicitor. I realise this is not your problem. He tried ( at my insistence) to retrieve the deleted texts using a program he paid for, but it only retrieved about 15 texts, all benign and as I saw hundreds of texts, 20-30 texts per day (too many to read), I think he may have permanently deleted them. Though he has agreed to go to the Apple store on Sunday to try to 'retrieve' them. I don't hold out much hope.
If I decide to call forward, is there any particular phone I need to use? Not bought a phone before. Can it be pay as you go? Presumably I can restore the function to my normal iPhone when I need to.
Thanks again Ashik,
Can he tell from his phone whether the call is being forwarded to another phone?
Many thanks Ashik.
Am complete novice with computers whereas he is very good with them.
Appreciate your help.
Sorry to trouble you again. Have got a new separate iPhone but can't send mail from iras I am 'not subscribed to a mobile data service'. Does this mean it is because it is not linked to the internet? If I join the internet service at home then can my husband see what I do on this device? Do I need something else? The phone says 'imap.gmail.com' is not responding. verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail settings. when I go to mail settings the gmail goes through to my new email but says outgoing server smtp.gmail.com as my primary server. What is SMTP server? How do I add another?
I have managed to send 1 email from the persons house who is lending me the iPhone .
Can you help?
I think i set up a new apple id this morning on the new phone. Will he be able to tell whether a new phone has been accepted onto our home network?
By cellular network do you mean a big corporate wi-fi system?
I am sorry to be so bad at technology but what is my carrier network?
will ask my friend to do this for me as it is her phone.
you are a star!
Sorry to trouble you again but I have just received an email from apple saying that my apple id was used to sign into a device 'sally's iPhone 4' at 8.23am this morning. I was in the shower then as my husband was taking the kids to school. I did use my apple id at the bank about 11am this morning and I have just switched off my iMessage on my proper phone to see what would happen. Are either of these a possible trigger for this response from apple? and would they take almost 8 hours to tell me or is the time wrong that they issued? sal
not quite sure if it has been changed. still seems to be set up only normal email address and password ***** the right number of dots to correlate with my password. Is it possible that he can delete things from my phone using the iCloud ?
thanks. Did that this morning. think it must have sent that message when I signed off and then back on iMessage on my proper iPhone just now. As he has access to my text messages are you sure he can't delete them? sal
Don't quite understand. He can wipe my iPhone remotely?
Oh dear.....! Will have to write all the texts confirming his 'too close friendship' out. Thanks for that.
Just a quick question. Is there any way for finding a history of how many times 'find my iPhone' app has been used. I think my husband was tracking me yesterday as well as last week.
Unfortunately have not changed Apple id on my normal iPhone or iPad/mac etc but just have borrowed a friends old iPhone and created a fictitious email address with new apple id so that he can't trace anything. I haven't even allowed it to sync with our home WiFi in case he realises it is there. Hopefully will get cellular/mobile WiFi on it tomorrow. I want to be able to google search and email solicitor etc ( if needs be) without him knowing about it. When I turned my phone off last week he told me he had called and that he knew the phone was off, rather than engaged.I don't think there is a difference in the messaging. If he is tracking me then I want him to be able to think he knows where I am, even if I dump the phone and go elsewhere with call forwarding to a different number. Are you sure there is no way of knowing when the 'find my iPhone app' has been triggered? If I change my Apple ID then he will know I am onto his tracking. Sally.
Thanks for that but I guess that means watching the phone every second which is , realistically, not practical. Appreciate the help though, thanks. Is there an alarm that could be set to tell me when the phone is being tracked? Sally
Thanks anyway. Appreciated.
If an iPhone is completely switched off then can I put it on to charge without it synchronising or backing up to anything on the iCloud? Sally
Thank you. I am sorry to be such a pest! Sally
Sorry to pester you again. Have now found that 3 icons on my mac have been paused and require my husbands apple id to open them. One is pages and I can't get into any of my documents without his password, the other 2 symbols I don't know what they mean. One is a lectern and the other is a 3D representation of blocks which are of different heights. Can you tell me what they mean?
Thanks for that.
Sorry another quick question. I have just been accessing my emails remotely from my old work computer. I have come home ( about***** and none of the emails I received or replied to have yet to come through to the family Mac computer, and yet they are on my iPad which was sitting next to the Mac. Is this a sign of hacking? As I type this to you the emails have come through more than 1 hour after they were sent.
Thank you for you help over the past few days. A very quid question, mu husband has found a unknown server attached to his mac book air. He does not seem overly concerned about it though has said he will take the mac book air with him on a business trip to Chicago and see an apple store there. Could it mean someone has hacked into his computer or is it really safe to leave this 'unknown' server 'for 8 + days attached to his computer? Is it possible that he has bought a new iMac (his credit card bill this month was > £1500, as opposed to £5 last month) and it is registered to him. I think he believes I have hacked his computer and phone. I absolutely deny this. Tampering with anyone else's phone or computer is illegal ( that being said because my phone and iPad was set up on his account, he has complete access to mine!) I know he has bought a new iPhone (fingerprint access) but could he have done this and bought a new iMac for £1500? Sally
my husband allowed me onto his macbook air and as I was searching I pressed 'recent history' button. This came up with with a list of history stuff and at the end of the list showed 'servers'. Beneath this listed Nick's Mac, Nicks' phone (iI think) and at the bottom of this list showed 'Peter Redfords iMac'. I do not know a Peter Redford and my husband denied knowing him as well. I will ask my husband to show me the barclay card itemised billing. Initially my husband wanted to know who this person was and as I have nothing to do with hacking his computer or phone I denied all knowledge of this. Eventually he said he would contact apple store to find out who/what this server was. This occurred last Saturday and he is flying to Chicago on this Saturday and says he will takes the macbook air to US with him and talk to apple store in Chicago. Should he be more concerned than he is or is it possible he has bought another iMac and labelled it Peter Redford ?
Have become so paranoid. My husband is telling so many lies that I now can not see the woods from the trees. I am sorry to drag you into my world. I am normally completely straight forward and usually live such a dull life. I am not used to all this computer stuff. Thanks for your help.
I have noticed over the past 2 days 3 times when a white location arrow has appeared for a few seconds medial to the battery symbol on top right hand side of iPhone screen. There has also been one occasion when the screen has lit up when no one was near it. Is either significant? Or does the location arrow appear regularly and I haven't noticed it before?
