@jobeard I think I asked this question before, but not sure. My iphone SE & iphone 6 Plus DO NOT have a phone number , yet a friend called me, how is that possible??

Good question. There's a difference between DO NOT HAVE vs Does not have a cell provider account (have they EVER?).

IF I'm understanding you correctly, both have never had the cell button on

Then your IMEI (GMA number) or MEID (CDMA number) could have been used to access your cellphone.

you need to CLOSE the account if you expect to be inaccessible
