Apple testing 'Find my iPhone' ahead of other MobileMe improvements - Page 2

post #41 of 65
So I wonder what Stellaclose was referring to?

Is it that once an iPhone 3G is remote wiped, using the 3.0 functionality, rebooting while holding keys "undoes" something, possibly by restoring the previously erased software encryption key?

And I guess we're thinking the 3GS sports hardware level encryption so whatever that is wouldn't work on the new models.

She can track you while you're tracking her. It's the new foreplay.

You can cancel the the remote wipe by holding down the Home & Sleep/Awake buttons at the same time as the iPhone/iPod starts up.

It's more likely your phone would be stolen to be sold to a pawn shop, not for the data on it unless you have credit card info easily accessible.

I wish they would make this a one time pay app like $10 dollars and we could use it without mobilme. I love this idea but i really dont want to buy the mobileme service.

I think that's pretty much the idea. Add enough stuff to Mobile Me so that it seems worth it.

For my money, they're not quite there yet, but they're getting there.

Works perfectly, although I did not test the wipe feature. But find my phone and send message and tone work a treat!

AT&T has a service, I think for $2 a phone per month, that can locate your phone on their network. Id figure it uses the cell towers, not GPS, but like the MobileMe its not detectible to the user.

Change the IMEI = jail term. Only one unlocker for the iphone gave you that option and it was removed (and that unlocker doesn't work any more).

Someone who's hawking a phone for drug money etc. isn't going to go to the expense of working out how to change the IMEI (on most phones that's very hard to do anyway). They'll see it's been bricked and therefore worthless and throw it away - it stops them running up your phone bill etc.

OTOH if you wipe it they can still use it - and sell it.

Tracking not working while roaming in Germany...

Is it supposed to work while roaming? I don't think that was ever really said one way or another. Anyone know?

You can only do this once. Once you wipe, as of now, you can't re-wipe. ewww, that sounded bad when I said it out load.

The price of jumping in head first.

I was finally able to get me.com to find my iPhone, send it a message and then attempt to remote wipe it.

The issue was that I had Fetch on manual and Push turned off, despite having Find My iPhone turned on in the Mail preferences for Mobile Me. if both are turned off my phone cant be found despite still getting mail from MM and having Maps find my location via GPS. After I turned either of them on the whats up? message and remote wipe I sent nearly 24 hours ago popped up.

Another issue, as stated earlier in this thread, is that you can hold down the Sleep and Home buttons to turn off the device before the wipe executes. When you restart the wipe command is gone and the MM site has no record if it was wiped or not. I hope they fix this. If not, presumably this wont be an issue with the iPhone 3GS if the HW encryption has to merely delete a the encryption key. I doubt we could turn it off before that executes.

Are you a registered iPhone developer?

If so, it sounds like you didn't put your big long ID in your account before upgrading.

I am sure it is recoverable. Ive done anything and everything to my iPhone and never had a permanently bricked device. There are forums on developers site for that, there are also Apple support pages for consumers that walk you through the iPhone and even a toll free number developers can call to get help.

I just found an odd omission for an Apple product feature a week from launching and after the GM was issued. The Find My iPhone option can be turned off and the MobileMe account can be deleted without the use of any password or passcode. I think they should use your MobileMe account password for to alter these settings since you may very well give your PIN to someone to temporarily or not even use a PIN on your device. Even if you have set a PIN set someone could disable this option before the device locks. While seemingly unlikely, it’s an oversight that needs to addressed, IMO.

Just tested this on my MobileMe account. If the volume has been turned down very low, MobileMe sends the notice but you will not be able to hear the alert. If they can override the silencer they should also override the volume controls.
