    Hi,

    I lost my iPad today and it was found by a girl who wanted to get it back. It was difficult but she did it and I thank her. My question is: how can i put a message/contact info on screen to show up on start along with the "Enter passcode" screen? Android has that option so I think iOS must have something like that or better.

    Thanks upfront...

    Can't you go into iCloud if I remember and under where you setup find my phone, You can type a message so when you utilize the feature this message comes up on your lock screen? It has been awhile but i am pretty sure you can do this.

    Find my iPhone has an option to send a message to the missing device.

    Not on the iOS devices, AFAIK... but there is an option for Macs.

    But simply adding text to your favorite wallpaper would do the trick... either with Preview (OSX) or Paint (Windows), it should be a simple task to accomplish.

    What Karen confirmed is what I was talking about with the message and find my phone.

    (Laughing)....Dude, I was minding my own business when one of our sadistic members caused me to become ill at the image that I depicted from his last post. He should be broken, banned and burned from all areas of this planet for such a heinous act.....
