Find My iPhone With iCloud

One of the best features of MobileMe is the find my iPhone and find my iPad feature.

This is one of the best features and reasons to get MobileMe ( cost $119).
When you log into your MobileMe account there is now a " find my iPhone " icon.

MobileMe log on panel find my iPhone
When you click on the icon the following will show so you can see a map of where your phone is.

 You are also able to send a message to your phone if you say ,left it at work , saying you will be back to pick it up , which will appear on your phone screen.
You can also activate a sound to play so if you drop it in your house , under a bed etc , you are able to get your phone to play a sound , even if it is on silent so you can locate your phone.
If the worst happens and you are not able to get your iPhone back ( if it was stolen ) you are able to wipe all settings , numbers , and information from your phone.
So what else do you get with MobileMe.

  • 20Gb of storage
  • Mail Account
  • Cross Syncing of mail , contacts , calender , across multiple computers ( and is cross platform Apple and Windows )

But to my mind the best feature is now " find my iPhone "
