Did a Hard Reset on iPhone and Old Voicemails Came Back
I have an iPhone (6, if it matters) and lately some odd things have been happening with it. A few months back, I'd misplaced it in the house while unpacking into a new place, and the location showed it was in the parking lot of the local police station, which was bizarre, but my fiance and I thought maybe I'd dropped it outside and someone took it and dumped it there.. It was found in the house on a different floor. We aren't wanted by the police, we aren't crack-dealers, or any other flavor of unsavory, so not sure why the local police or any police for that matter would interfere with my cellphone and invade my privacy, but then what explains the location showing up where it did?
This month 6gb of data was eaten up but I'm a light user and rarely go above 3, so I called AT&T and was told that it I used the data up when in fact I didn't.
A few more things: sometimes I, and the person I'm speaking with, hear distinctive clicks, I recently heard a mans voice for a split second coming thru while I was on a call, and a select few pictures that came from my family via text, showed location information from where the picture was taken, other pictures I've been sent by others don't show any location information. Why is this?
I googled looking for some insight and it seems that the aforementioned things indicate my phone may be tapped, some kind of spyware present. I then did a hard reset based off advice I read, set up the iPhone as new, created a new Apple ID, and a bit later the same day, a few old voicemails came back. I'd like to know how this is possible?
I'd also appreciate anyone's two cents regarding the odd behaviors that went on before the reset, what I can do to ensure I'm on a spy free phone.
Thank you for your time!
