Finding your lost iPhone or Android phone

Had a friend ask today how kids in her high school could locate a lost or stolen smartphone.  Instead of answering by email, I decided to write it here for all.

These methods will work only if your phone is turned on, and is in a place it can make contact.  If it isn't these methods can wait until the phone is visible on the cell network.

On a PC, go to icloud.com

Login with the phone owner's iTune username and password


When this page appears, click "Find My Phone"
