    My husbands phone was stolen and that is a great app as long as the phone is turned on. It wont be located if the thief turns it off unfortunately. It is very handy though for finding it when lost. Luckily we caught the creep that stole the phone because he was on camera but he had already sold the phone to someone downtown. Hopeful but doubtful to get restitution. These iphones are not cheap to replace.

      That’s unfortunate about your husband’s phone. :( I wonder how they avoid turning it on? Isn’t is useless otherwise? I suppose crooks will always find a way to thwart the system, though. Hope it turns up. :(

    We use the app at home to find our devices. But we did use it one time to find an iPod touch my son had set down at the drug store. When we realized it was missing we called the store but it hadn’t been turned in. We used the app and could see it was still at the store. We went in, had it play a sound and found it on top of children’s medicine boxes at kid height. Awesome app! Awesome story Queen Bee!

    Doesn’t GWL have cameras in there hallways? I would think they would have. They could then see who took the phone in the first place. They should at least have them on the desk I would think. Glad you found the phone.

      Kathy – They probably do! I suppose that would have been our next recourse had the phone not been returned.

    I love my Otterbox Defender Series case for my iphone & I just got one for the ipad. Seriously, I’ve dropped my phone many times and it there is not even a scratch on it! The Find My Phone would have been handy to have when my husband got his original iphone stolen a few years ago.

    Thanks for the tip!

      From what I experienced, I loved the Otterbox I had on my phone. I just ordered a replacement from Amazon last night. They seem to do the job!

    My 17-year-old daughter and I both have “Find My iPhone” installed on our phones. One day she called frantically from her job saying she thinks she lost her new iPhone. I logged into the “Find” app from my computer. When I selected to find her iPhone, it located her phone at her work address. She then said, “Oh. I just found it in my back pocket!” Really?! lol Gotta love this app!

    The “Find My iPhone” app is seriously the greatest thing ever!!! And it works for any Apple device!!! I love it!! You know when you miss place your phone in your own house it’s bad – but you can pull up the website and play an alert on it (even will play on Silent)!!! You can do it on any devices on you cloud – so if I need to get ahold of my husband but he’s not answering, it will play an alert until he looks at it!! LOVE IT!!!!

      Natasha – I hadn’t realized you could make it play an alert even if it was set to mute. That sounds like a great way to find it!
