    I want my iPad back!

    My iPad2 went missing yesterday and I don't think I had mobileme or anything like that. If someone restores it to factory settings or turns it off will I be able to track it down?

    If you did not have one of the tracking apps like Find My iPhone on it, then there isn't anything you can do to find it. Even then, if it was a thief they probably know enough to turn it off and/or restore it as soon as possible.


    If you believe it was stolen, report it along with the serial number to the police. You might get lucky and they will get caught with it still in their possession.

    That sucks, sorry to hear it. What's the story behind it being stolen?

    If you had created an iCloud acct on your iPad, your iPad will show up via the "Find my iphone" function at www.icloud.com if whoever has it has the iPad turned on and it's tapping the internet. This goes for wifi ipads as well... they just have to be using wifi to show up.

    I didn't realize this function was available until my son showed it to me yesterday. So, logging in to your icloud account, and clicking on the "Find my phone" button at icloud's home screen will pinpoint the location of your ipad on the map if it's currently connected to the internet. You can also instruct your iPad to make a sound, or send a message to the iPad.

    That's one good reason to have iCloud. And when I went there I would be wearing my tee shirt that says "Body piercing by 1911".
