Sad. That was probably the best job that the thief ever had...I wish police would prosecute these people for theft. Nope. TSA just fires them.
It was quite effective for me at locating a misplaced iPod Touch.
I saw this a couple of weeks ago on the news. I thought I posted it here. I guess I didn't.
The best part of this is he blames his wife for stealing. There have been quite a few Find My iDevices success stories. They only catch the dumb ones though. The smart ones get away with a cool gadget.
I've used "find my iphone" a couple of times, usually to confirm that I've left my phone or iPad on my desk at work.
My wife left last night for a weekend school trip; she called about a half hour after she left (using a friend's phone) as she couldn't find hers (a dumb phone). She'd charged it at home, and thought she'd packed it.
I called her cell from mine, running through the house listening for it -- nothing. Of course I was assuming she'd turned it on, something she neglects to do on occasion...
She found her phone at the bottom of her bag a while later, turned it on, and gave me a call to let me know she'd found it.
...And then she got on the bus to enjoy an overnight bus ride with 87 7th graders!
Don't think "find my..." works too well when the device is turned off...
Find my Phone won't work with the power off and live internet connection.
Also if someone got your phone and remove the sim card and do the restore then you won't be able to locate it.
Another good app that can help locate an iPhone or iPad is Find My Friends. If you and your spouse, kids, etc. are set up, you can find each other -- or at least your phones. AND it shows up on a map and works even when the phone is set to mute. (I think Find My Phone will override the mute function also.) But the phone DOES have to be on!
In addition to having Apples Find iPhone on my iPhone, I also have IcaughtU Pro. Pretty cool.
That's a cool app, thanks.
