    Default True tales of Find my iPhone

    Last year my car got broken into and my iPad 2 stolen. I went to Find my iPhone immediately but despite it being a 3G iPad, it didn't register. I guess they were smart enough to turn it off.

    I kept trying for a couple days but got nothing, so I sent the remote wipe command.

    A couple days after that, I received a confirmation that the wipe was successful.

    I'll never know if I could have tracked them that day instead of sending the wipe, but I didn't want to take any chances with personal data, passwords, etc.

    Anyone else ever had to use Find my iPhone? (Aside from using it to find your iPad or iPhone around the house, behind the sofa, on the table, etc., haha)

    I have actually never had to use Find my iPhone. My iPhone is almost always in my hand
