Find My iPhone... Please!!

I have been a proud iPhone owner since the day it came out in good old 2007. I was young, and yearning for the newest technology. I somehow didn't care that an (at the time) six hundred dollar phone did not have an insurance plan... oh no no no. I just wanted my iPhone... no matter what!

Now, my priorities have changed, and I am constantly thinking of the "what if." What if my phone gets stolen, what if I lose it, what if I drop it and it cracks into tiny pieces?

Well, I will tell you a little "what if" story because it can happen!
Recently, my mom lost her iPhone at a hotel. After searching and searching to find it, the phone did not turn up. I called my provider to explain to them what had happened and if there was anything I could do to find the phone. They asked me if I had set up the "find my iPhone" app feature on the phone. I said no because I didn't know about the feature. If there is something that can find your phone..... WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT! I was upset that I had not been told about this feature before, and only until after the phone was gone did I even know it had existed [counterproductive]!
So... I am taking it upon myself to relay the message.

The find my iPhone feature will track your iPhone from your computer and send out a personalized message with a noise until it is found. It also helps if it has been stolen or lost to track down where it is on a map. It is a great service that everyone needs to know about!

So, how do you set it up?

Hopefully you won't loose your phone, but if you love your iPhone as much as I do, set this up as a precautionary measure!

  1. Thanks for the warning, but this application apple known at all times where you are?
    And that I have located 24 hours, I do not like too.
    well, is my opinion.


  2. Not all the time. The only time it is active is when you lose your phone and you use a computer to locate it.

  3. hmmm must check it out! thanks for the recommendation.


  4. Oh gosh, good to know! Thanks, gf! Getting this app now! :)
