  • Find My iPhone is Live!

    MMi member jjh4ck3rs just contacted me and notified that the new MobileMe Find My iPhone feature is live. I logged into my .me account and there it was operating just fine.

    If you remember last week when it was announced, Find My iPhone allows you to track your iPhone's location, send a msg to it (with annoying audio alarm), and even remote-wipe all your data. The feature is meant to be used in case you iPhone is lost or stolen to help you recover it and remove personal information.

    I can confirm that location tracking is working and the send message feature is working. MMi member jjh4ck3rs says he tried the remote wipe feature and it worked instantly! The iPhone just shuts down with no warning, stays at the Apple for a long time booting up, and the starts with all your personal data removed.

      I imagine you have to have location services turned on. I don't know about you all but I leave that off unless I am using it. Its a massive power whore.

      When I upgraded my iPhone to 3.0GM last week this was the first thing I went to and it worked for me. I think this a great tool seeing how i always misplace my phone. Now if it could tell me what room it was it that would be awesome !!!!

      i cant condone paying 100 bucks for an email client that will just give us tracking features.People should just hold onto their phones.
