    Ok, so I have an iPhone 4 with Find my iPhone set up on it. I already went through Settings, Mail, MobileMe, etc.

    Up until a few days ago I was able to go to me.com and log in in order to see my iPhone on a map. I didn't have a paid me.com subscription but I started using it when they opened up find my iPhone for free to everybody last fall. When I tried to log in to me.com today I got take to this webpage:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4597

    Since I still do not have a paid me.com account, I was not extended to 2012. Where exactly can I go now if I want to track my iPhone without using another persons iPhone app?

    My free Find my iPhone is still working when I go to me.com and enter my Apple ID.

    You tried it today and it worked fine for you? Now I wonder if it's just me, because the message I get says "Your MobileMe subscription has ended and can't be renewed. This Apple ID can still be used for other Apple Services. Learn More" and that's when it links to:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4597

    When I go to that webpage I can't find anything about find my iPhone.

    I just tried it. Does your Apple ID end with @me.com or @mac.com?

    Just tried it after seeing this thread, and it works for me.
    I go to www.me.com. I was not logged in so it asked for my Apple ID and password. My Apple ID is not @me.com, but rather a different e-mail provider.

    I was able to log in and see my iDevices on the map.

    Sorry folks, I think I'm an idiot. :eek:

    Looks like I was attempting to log in with an old .me username that I had done my 60 day free trial with before they made Find my iPhone free. Once I tried logging in with my email it worked fine. Ah well, at least it's working now. :cool:
