    I updated my iphone yesterday and now have spent hours trying to setup the so called free feature of finding your phone with no success. Now I am so confused with user names and passwords I can't remember my own name. Now Me.com says I am verified and my iphone says it is not verified. I am now at a standstill so life is too short to keep trying. By the way I also have a new HP6000 wireless printer & my ipad says cannot find printer. Door is closed. Had to tell somebody. jim_joh

    If you're trying to use the MobileMe "Find My Phone" feature, one thing I learned was that you need to do it while in your Wi-Fi network. I had no success doing it while in 3G, but as soon as I was in my house, it set up without a problem.

    You have to have certain printers to get the wireless printing to happen on a windows computer. I have a HP printer but it is the next model down and does not support eprint which is what the iPad requires. Oh, well, I can still just send a document in an email and print it at home. No biggie.....

    Well I guess I have to eat my own words about finding my phone. I said everything worked but I just went me.com and it said nothing was registered. I am not going to spend anymore time setting it up again because it must be very unreliable. jim_joh

    I will stay away from the updates until the 5th gen phone and 2nd gen pad come out. I'm happy with the way things are now :)

    But, of course, I have my devices jailbroken ;)

    I had my choice of several iPhones. I do wish they will make a Mac version though.

    I have android phone. And windows computers. None of these work on me.com. So if I misplace, lose, forget my iPad I cant "find" it


    Ok edit I was able to get it on the pc..though last time I tried it wanted to click to install. So let me try something on my android....maybe I'm just having mental block.


    Edit 2.... Ok I was dumb, had to make my phone browser appear as desktop then I got the expected response... Until then it just wanted me to install the app, which wasn't right.

    I am having trouble activating my iPad on MobileMe. When I try to send the activation e-mail, it says the email was sent to ".". Any help would be appreciated.

    Just use the app TekTrak

    You do not need to use an ios device to track your phone, just any computer or method of accessing the web. Easy to set up, you can see where you have been, where your phone is now, and even ring it's little chime.
