A few weeks ago, I lost my iPhone. Usually this puts me in a state of panic, but I had finally gotten around to installing the Find My iPhone App and guess what – it worked! I had left my iPhone at TJ Maxx. Thankfully the manager had placed it in a lock drawer. I was able to retrieve it (Thanks TJ Maxx!) no problem.  After this incident, I’ve become a self-appointed public spokesperson for the Fine My iPhone App.

How to Use Find My iPhone App on the iPhone

First things first. Install the Find My iPhone app, it’s free.  Download Find My iPhone (also works on your iPad and iPod Touch!)
