Has anyone bought a new iPhone then later discovered someone’s notes on it?
I bought my iPhone 5 back in like 2013 and it was my first ever iPhone. I had an itouch that I used for music and games and what not but other than that it was my first apple product.
I bought my phone at a Verizon store where I picked out the color black and then proceeded to open the box it came in. I started my new iPhone up and went through the first time start up process while I was at the Verizon store because they had to initiate my service and make sure it was all good. Nothing out of the ordinary.
I was younger (18ish) and it was my first iPhone. I really didn’t use some of the preinstalled apps right off the bat. Who gets an iPhone and is excited to open the compass app or notes first thing. Not me. So after hours of downloading apps and trying out all the cool ones I decided to look at the notes app.
Right away I spotted one note on my brand new never used before iPhone. At first I thought okay my my girlfriend wrote something on it while I wasn’t looking. As I started to read this lengthy note I quickly realized that my girlfriend did not write this. Nothing was making any sense. The time stamp on the note was like from 2 years before I even purchased my phone…. bizarre beyond my comprehension.
I, to this day, still have that note and often look at it to try and understand how it got on my phone, who this person that wrote this note, and is this common to find other people’s notes on your phone???
I have no idea but I decided that today I should ask the 2.2m iPhone users in this sub if they have ever had any similar situations with their new iPhones.
I will include the note below so you can get a sense of how confused I was when I read it not knowing how it got here, why is it my only note, why it is from 2 years prior from the purchase of my phone, and who the heck are these people!

End weird note.
Hopefully the person that wrote this note is okay with my sharing but you did somehow manage to get it on my phone so I guess it’s mine to do what I want with? I don’t know this is still so weird to me.
What do you iPhone owners think about this? I hope I’m not the only one this has happened too!
Bought a my first new iPhone that contained someone’s love letter dating back before my phone was even created…
