    We have two I-phones and one I-pad. When I try to find my husbands phone it say's it is off line. His WiFi is turned on. It always located my phone and my I-pad but never his phone and I can't figure out why???

    I will check that. In settings I'm assuming. We are very new to this. Just trying to work out the bugs.
    Thanks

    In iOS 6 it's in Settings/Privacy/Location Services.
    In iOS 5 it's in Settings/Location Services

    No problem. That's what we're here for. Let us know how you get on. If that doesn't do it, something else will.

    Just to confirm, not only Location Services needs to be on, but scroll down the app list and make sure Find My IPhone is also on.
