  1. @nailscarredhand, the find the iphone is a free service
    from mobileme. it works great only if the iphone/ipad/ipod touch is
    connected to the internet during the time that you are locating the
    device, if not, it’s useless.

    • I know, i just discovered that now! How disappointing! Coz if its stolen, most likely theyll turn it off! Oh well…

  2. yup this is really cool. I think you have to have mobile
    internet always ‘On’ though, or else you won’t be able to track the
    phone😛 but still not bad. @nailscarredhand yup they made it free
    just recently. It’s the only free part of Mobile Me. The Mail,
    Contacts, and Calendar part are still paid services. (ako na
    bibo)

      • works great too if you’re spying on someone. hide it in his/her car/bag/etc, then go Find your iPhone! haha kidding.
        Try it on Del😛 lol

  3. Find my iphone is free only to iphone4, ipad, and ipod touch 4th gen. if you have lower models than those then you have to have the paid mobile me account. Mobile Me can detect what model your registering. no other work around

    And that’s right you have to have the internet connection if you want to find your ios device. Its proven useful to iphone since your data plan is always in used. unless you turn it off which is not s straight forward thing. For ipod touches it must be connected to the internet. But its worth setting up just in case.

  4. this may come in useful if you wanna track someone, say your spouse/bf/gf who claims to be going to a “business trip”!

  5. Hey Chico –

    Here’s the link on how you can run it on your pre-2010 iOS device- iPhone 3G, iPhone 3Gs.

    You can create a free Find My iPhone account on any iPhone 4, iPad, or iPod touch (4th generation) running iOS 4.2. Once you create an account on a qualifying device, use your Apple ID and password to enable Find My iPhone on your other devices running iOS 4.2.

    You can only make three MobileMe accounts per device.
