I keep my phone on silent or vibrate most of the time. This is because I get a huge quantity of mail and various notifications, and the phone is always chirping which annoys some people! Yet there are times when I just can not find my phone and I go into panic mode. Because the phone is on silent, I cannot hear it even if I call it from another line. This nasty problem (if you've ever encountered it) can be easily solved with Find My iPhone!

You may not want to pay for the MobileMe services available for your iDevices. However, a friend pointed out to me that Find My iPhone though part of the paid subscription to MobileMe, is now free for anyone with an iPhone 4, iPad, or 4th generation iPod Touch. In order to use this app though, you will need to be updated to iOS 4.2. Just sign in with your Apple ID on your device and turn on Find My iPhone to enable your device to be located at all times.

If you lose your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch while on the go, simply install the Find My iPhone app on another iOS device, launch it, and sign in with your Apple ID. Note that the app must already be configured on the missing device. You could also go on the web to http://me.com and sign in to MobileMe to locate your phone that way also.

You’ll see your device’s location on a map and you can choose to have it display a message or play a sound, remotely lock the device, or wipe it to permanently delete all of your data if you think that it won’t be returned. For added security, the app will automatically sign you out after 15 minutes, or you can manually sign out at any time.

Please note that Find My iPhone enables you to locate your iPad or iPod Touch only when it is on and connected to a registered Wi-Fi network. Find My iPhone is not available in all countries.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Find My iPhone is a super handy tool to allay your distress any time you misplace your iDevice!"
