Hi,

If you setup iCloud on the device - you can login to iCloud.com with your details and it will show you the location of the phone. (Provided the location settings are turned on)

go back to the field and call your phone from another? Take a few friends with you...

Dude, I searched all night and early this morning, no sound no light, and the field has long grass :twisted:

/feels self
:erm:
If those are balls then they relocated far north, on their own
:whistling:


if your phone is on, was the volume off?

All I can think of is to take a dog and call the device, it is possible the dog will be curious and direct you to the phone - give it a shot.

Try to remember take a step where you chased your friend. Long grass should be hard to find but less chance it stolen.

Friend? Sound will pique its interest and even give an indication of the general direction - get to the SPCA or ask a friendly SAPS dude. Which iPhone?

How can I get a dog at the SPCA to help me look for my phone, thats ridiculous and they dont just give dogs away.
Its the iphone 4

Yes they do, they have a specific breed trained to find Apple devices....Golden Delicious Retrievers.

Bottom line is that if the location services for find my phone wasnt turned on or setup in icloud then you cant use gps tracking.
Also the tracking will just tell you that it is in the field or play a sound on it to let you try find it.
Are you 100% sure it was your phone that was thrown and not something else?
