    My wife and I both have the iPhones 3gs. I have a mobile me account, she does not. She does not want one. She uses a different email, and calendars, even different computer to sync. I just want her to have the "find my iPhone" feature, but not have to pay for a MM account just for that. Any Suggestions?
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I don't think you can have 2 iphones on the mobile me "find my iphone" feature which is a shame really

    If you have JB your iphone then there are other solutions such as iLocalis which I have used on my iphone and find it very good. There are a few other and I am sure that other MacRumors members will be able to tell you

    It can be done very easily... my wife and I do this already.

    All you need to do is set up MobileMe on her phone through the 'add mail account' in mail, calendar settings.

    Once you have input your address and information it asks which services you wish to sync (mail, calander, contacts, bookmarks and find my iphone)

    All you have to do is turn off everything except Find my iphone.

    Once set up her phone will now show up i your find my iphone section on MobileMe.com

    Hope this helps.
