    Hello!
    Well, I wrote abote this like a week ago but I kind of forgot about the thread and I can't find it now.

    So, I have a problem with my Location Services. My iPhone 5 can't be located in "Find Friends".
    I checked in the settings, and I've alredy aprooved this app to get my current location but for some reason when somebody tries to find me, it says "Location Unavailable".

    I thought I lost my iPhone the other dat and it was very stressful not being able to loacate it that way. (In the end I found it in another way, long story..).

    So, what should I do?

    Still doesnt work. I read the tips in the Help>TroubleShooting of the app and all things are alright. I can't be found.

    I looked in the Account settings and saw this "Active Device" thing. I have my "Orr's iPhone 5" and I have "OK". I dont know what is this OK. I tried both. Nothing works.

    What should I do?

    That's weird.
    Only other thing I would suggest is restore and setup as new.
    Sounds like a software bug.

    Were you using the same backup file before and used that one for iOS 7?
    There's not more I can think of.
    Setup as new and test it out. Then restore from backup and if its still the same then you know what's up.
