So if someone steals a wifi only iPad you're pretty much SOL right?

I really wish there was a way to track it it's not like a phone when you can just keep calling and texting it and telling them you'll give them a reward if they bring it back. I tried to iMessage it and it doesn't say delivered so I don't know if it went through or not. I facetimed it and it just keep ringing and ringing

You may be able to track it if it's connected to Wi-Fi and you installed Find my iPhone on it.

EDIT:Batavian beat me to it!

I don't even know man. I could have sworn I did. Man next time this thing is not leaving the house and I think I know who stole it too. I hate people that steal, selfish lowlifes I hope there is a circle of hell just for them.

I'm sorry but if you think you know who stole it why don't you tell this to the police?

Yeah if you catch it when it's connected to wifi you can set off an alarm and lock it up if I'm not mistaken.

If you did enable Find My iPad, you can log in to Find My iPad (either from the app or from the iCloud website), and your iPad will show up in the list of devices. If it can't be located (it's offline or turned off), it'll indicate it can't be located. I believe there's a switch for notifying you if it ever does come online.
