Yesterday I upgraded to the new OS with no problems and since then has been living hell trying to install the free find your phone feature. I assure you I am not a newbe but I have spent hours with no success. At this stage I am so confused with user names and passwords that I can't now remember my given name. me.com says the phone is verified and the phone only says it has to be verified so I am at a standoff with no end in site. I guess I will have to make sure I don't lose my phone as life is too short to keep trying. Had to tell somebody. thanks jim_joh

Agree it is not a user friendly install.

I had to set it up on my iPhone 4 then my wife's 3GS could be registered.

I tried it the other way around and got a message that the 3GS did not qualify for free MobileMe account.

Once a established an account via my iPhone 4 I could download the app on the 3GS and sign on with that account and both phones became visible to me.com and each phone.

Don't know if I could repeat the process again successfully

I installed it the first day, and it worked. Then I turned it off for the 2nd day. Turned it on the 3rd day and it did not work. My iphone 4 says cannot verify my account. After a few tries, I deleted the account, and installed it again, and it is working now. Just hope it stays working.

Well I guess I have to eat my own words. I said everything worked but I just went me.com and it said nothing was registered. I am not going to spend anymore time setting it up again because it must be very unreliable. jim_joh

Might make an appointment with the Genius Bar and have them do it for you.

me.com is still working for me.

I was under the impression that find me is only for Iphone 4 not for 3GS. Is that accurate?

You have to first activate it on an iPhone 4 or iPod touch 4. Then you can activate it on earlier models...

Apple only give you it for free if you have their newest idevice. You can still start with a 3GS but you have to pay for it...

It's me again. Find my phone & ipad is working again. I guess it was my fault because when me.com opened me me user name & password was showing as default and I should have used me apple user name & password. live & learn. jim_joh
