    He would get a popup to verify password so if he doesnt know the password to start he can't change it.

    They all have to be on ios5 and the number has to be stored as an iPhone under contacts... Not mobile or home.

    Sorry but the number can be listed as mobile or home or whatever. It does not matter like I said before it has less to do with your phone number than most want to realize.

    You could do separate "Receive at" email addresses for your devices

    ie: my iPhone receives at my mobile number, and my hotmail
    my iPad receives at my iCloud email

You just simply sign into the app store with that old ID.
    Same here I have a store account and a iCloud account with two DIFFERENT emails.

    You can just remote lock it.....
    Then you don't need to remote wipe it in the first place....
    Am I missing something?
    And only idiots don't have a passcode on their iDevice in the first place...

    Solution is Simple. Jaikbreak your iDevice. When it gets stolen, Remote Wipe it. when u remote wipe a Jailbroken iDevice, it will never boot up and will get stuck on the Apple Logo

    I don't have a passcode because I don't leave my iDevice outside of my pocket or my hand, unless it's charging at home.

    Hmm?... I was having problems myself and after I stored the numbers under iPhone it started to send messages via iMessage. Guess I had something else going on?

    I have contacts under both mobile and home that are iPhones and they iMessage no problem. So I don't know what your issue was.

    I buy a lot of used iphones and ipods, and have already ran into this a bunch. Texts people send to the person i bought it from at like 3 in the morning going off, etc. Can i remove the appl ID from the phone so that i dont receive said messages?

    Why are you not restoring the device in the first place?

    Most of them come restored, I'm assuming upon restore their account is automatically loaded on to it. Since I personally don't use iOS 5 or above, I guess my question is: will restoring it remove their apple ID from the phone? Will their phone number not remain on the phone until a new SIM inserted? The OP made it seem as though the person who previously owned the phone must add a new ID to their phone in order for it to replace the old.

    You should always do a clean wipe and restore on your on computer and itunes account.

    No the phone just needs to have a proper restore to wipe it clean. The remote wipe leaves behind settings and configurations is what they are saying is causing the problem.

    I am reselling the phones, so if I loaded my own information on it then the person I sold it to would have my information and receive my messages, correct?
