My iphone4 was stolen tonight and I tried to locate it using mobileme but it couldn't locate it. I'm just trying to figure out why. I have the feature activated on my phone. If the phone is off shouldn't' mobileme still be able to locate it?

It could be a bunch of stuff. Phone is off, in airplane mode, or they turned Find My iPhone off. Just keep trying to see if they turn the signal back on. When it goes missing, best thing is to immediately check and passcode lock it. Although someone can still restore it, if they don't know how to with a passcode lock on, you might get some luck.


This is why cel phones aren't allowed in secured government locations...even if "powered down". Because they aren't truly "off".

Now if the battery is remove, or completely dead, that is another story.

What government locations are you talking about? Depending on your clearance you can be anywhere with a cell phone. :rofl:

I guess a General's phone is more secure than a civilian's phone?

My building has a repository for phones as you walk in. Anyone caught with a phone will be considered violating the security policy and will incur a CMI. Those things can take stripes... :hsugh:

This is a flaw in the whole find my iphone feature IMO. It should prompt you for a pin code in the event you want to disable the feature. If I stole an iPhone, that'd be the first thing I'd check and turn off. It's annoying having a passcode lock on the phone, specially if you are active on it throughout the day with emails, texts, etc.
