After having my first iPhone stolen, I decided to try the app "Find my iphone" on my friend's loaner iPhone 3GS to see how and if it really works.
When I turned it on, I ensured that these were all setup:
- Location Services: ON
- Find My iPhone: ON
- Cellular Data: ON (3 Bars Service at the time)
- WiFi: ON and connected to the router
- Internet utilizing apps: ON and in use
Doing all this, I went to iCloud.com and decided to locate the phone, and test out the Find my iPhone feature. After 5 attempts to locate and 1 attempt to send the phone a message, it still came up as "No Location" and then "Offline".
I was browsing the internet on iPhone's Safari App, while these "finding attempts" were going on. What a miserable fail.
Now I'm wondering if whoever stole my iPhone 4S is actually browsing the internet and having a wonderful time while I sit here miserable, thinking that this feature actually provided a service that I could use to find my phone. Appears to me, through my experience, that this is a total fluke.
My sister's Droid actually has a phone finding app that works. It was very disappointing to hear that her non-Apple product topped the abilities of my iPhone 4S. As much as it hurts, I actually decided that I will switch to that new Samsung sIII in the following week. I feel like I got jipped by my favorite company
Did you actually come here for some help, or just to whinge and tell us you're switching to a Samsung?
Find my iPhone works perfectly for me and for many, many other people. Basing your whole decision to switch to another platform simply based on one single experience with one single feature seems rather over dramatic.
