    To clarify, are you trying to locate your iPad via your iPhone? If so have you installed the application on the device you are trying to locate? I have an iPad wifi version also and I can locate it using the find me app.

    I am on my 3G iPad at the moment and I just checked and found my wifi iPad right away.

    Well I am sorry I just noticed your location. From what I understand, this feature only works in the US right now. I could be mistaken though.

    I know it works in the UK and Greece, and I believe any where in the EU, although that still doesn't help you much.

    I have installed the find me app on my Ipad and went through the process of installation, mail etc however I can only locate my pad and Iphone when using my MAC. Another words, I can not locate my Iphone using my Ipad. Both devices have the same log in and passwords. What gives?

    Then make sure you followed the directions when loading and setting up the app and it should work. Double check in other words. It does work on my wifi only iPad as well.

    I thought the location only worked on 3G models?

    Mine finds me instantly all the time. Even in my home, it seems to know about what room I'm in lol

    "Find my" works in most countries.

    The countries I've read that it wil not work in are:

    North Korea
    Israel
    Egypt

    "Find my" also works on both wifi only models and wifi+3G models.

    Also, make sure that you select "ON" for find my iPhone, and select "Allow" or it will not be enabled.

    There are other things that can prevent your "Find my" from working:
