On the plus side, I have finally restored my iPhone. Of course, to do that, I had to disable “Find my iPhone” before iTunes would restore my iPhone. If course, when you do that, you get this friendly email from Apple:
- Find My iPhone <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Find My iPhone has been disabled on iPhone.

Find My iPhone has been disabled on iPhone.
With Find My iPhone disabled, this device can no longer be located, placed in Lost Mode, or remotely erased using icloud.com/find or the Find My iPhone iOS app.
In addition, your Apple ID and password will no longer be required for someone to erase, reactivate, and use your iPhone.

XXXX you too, Apple!
Apple is really pushing the iCloud thing. Really pushing it. Like, “you know you'll be XXXXXX if you don't use this, right?” pushing it.
No, I do NOT want to use it. And yet, I have to keep telling Apple that over and over and over again as I run various applications.
