Iphone turn off location tracking

Some iPhone users have experienced a very annoying issue; their iPhone will randomly turn itself off, despite having battery charge remaining. Sometimes this is just a matter of the iPhone battery indicator not updating properly, sometimes it’s software related, and sometimes it’s actually related to the battery hardware itself.

If you’re experiencing the random shutting itself down problem on your iPhone, we’ve got a few troubleshooting solutions that may fix the issue.

For many users, simply draining the iPhone battery all the way down to 0% (not just to the point of shutting down, but actually letting it completely drain) and then charging it back to 100% is enough to get the random shut-off problem to resolve itself. This usually only works if the issue is related to the iPhone battery indicator not properly showing the charge remaining.

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.

Find My iPhone was one of the best things Apple showed off on Monday at WWDC—track your phone, send harassing messages, etc. It works, but whoever pinched your iPhone can just turn off tracking right from the phone.

So, if you wanna steal your friend's iPhone and not have them know where you absconded to, all you have to do it go into Settings, then hit Mail, Contact, Calendars and click on the MobileMe account. Turn off Find My iPhone and all your friend will get is a little yellow warning symbol when they try to track it if the phone's been previously located (see above).

Even if they're not smart enough to dig into the MobileMe account setting, all you have to do is turn off Location Services under General settings—that also cripples Find My iPhone long enough to get it back home to wipe it out completely so it's untraceable.
