    So i noticed this little problem today while searching for my phone at home. When i couldnt find it i went to to play the sound on the phone for easier searching. But funny thing is that icloud couldn't find my phone so the sound was put on "pending". When i finally found it and pressed the home button to activate screen the phone started ringing. So i tried it once more after 5 minutes and this time everything worked perfectly, the sound played on the phone without me activating the screen. Just 15minutes ago i tried it again and yet again it didnt work. So i had to, once again, click the home button for the sound to start playing which is more or less useless since it diminishes the whole idea of the "play sound" thingy. Also the last known location of the phone was from 3 hours ago, but the phone has been turned on the whole time... Anybody got any ideas how to fix this?

    Are you on WiFi or cellular connection when you are doing this?
