Well now, you might be wondering, how does the preceding thread title will unfold. Lo'behold! Today on the day of the iPhone's first announcement, I simply have lost my 5S. But, how do you ask, is that relevant to you, or how is it forum reading material? Well, carry on reading if you want, but if you don't want, I assure you, you may want to reconsider. Coming to work, I realized that I had forgotten my charger for my 5S. Now, this would not be a problem if the 5S would have had the original 30-pin connector (plenty of people at work with 4S/4). Given that my work shift right now is 12 hours and that I use my phone heavily, I decided to turn off cellular data before getting to work as a battery savings. Right here is mistake number 1. My iPhone does have "Find my iPhone" active and working. So it is always in my best interest to have that connection going until the last possible second. Fast forward 5 minutes after that decision. I decide to stop with my coworkers (who carpool with me) at a local pizza hut (I am in the night shift, for those wondering why pizza in the morning). I get out and use my iPhone and after a quick pick up leave towards work. Mind you at this point, my friend's vehicle is full of bags and pizza boxes. Hoping out of the car we each grab bags and stuff. I didn't feel my phone in the pocket, but I didn't think much of it. In the work area, after 10 minutes of being inside, I needed to make a call. No iPhone. Check pockets, nothing. Check my desk, nothing. Check the car in every corner, nothing. Drive to the Pizza Hut to check and talk with the on-duty gaurd, nothing. Check with video surveillance of my work place, something. You can barely see something hitting the ground on the side I get off. Later within the 10 minute window I was inside several workers pass by the car. Several stop by the car but none, do a pickup motion. I'm heavily leaning this is when I actually lost it/had it stolen. What's my reaction? iCloud of course. Well, thanks to my earlier decision, iCloud has become useless. No cellular data means no connection to the internet. Moreover, Wi-Fi is off. TouchID and passcode are enabled. So no way of the finder to set those on; assuming good samaritan. At this point, I have deadlocked myself into never finding it. Who eve finds it, can't make calls due to TouchID. They can't hook it up to Wi-Fi, and cellular data s off. Hopefully, if they do restore it, Activation Lock will kick in (assuming iTunes checks iCloud) and block the phone entirely. Now, lesson learned here? Never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, turn Cellular data off (unless you are inside of a plane). You have low battery, suck it up. Its always best to have iCloud work with your iPhone to the last possible second, than not having that ability should you ever need it. Of course, the events unfolded here are a series of probabilities that combined to make the mess happen. Feel free to let your negativism or positivism run their courses here.
