    So... I left my phone in someone's car. He's confirmed it's there, but I don't know him that well. He says he'll bring it to me tonight (he's not in the city right now). There's sensitive info on my phone. I used find my iphone to find it and put it in lost mode, but then I read if you're not running IOS 6 you can't use lost mode. I'd wipe it... but then I won't be able to track it. Argghhh. I don't know what to do.

    And yes, I'm pretty sure he'll go through it. Getting peoples info is kind of what he does for a living.

    Gdammit, I'm so pissed at myself right now :/

    It's a feature of iOS 6 and beyond.

    What are you running if not iOS 6?

    lol, I'm panicking so much I'm tripping. I meant I'm running IOS6, but i read it only works on 7? I logged into find my iphone on my ipad tho, and it let me put it into lost mode and set a passcode. So hopefully I'm ok. I'd never heard of lost mode & thought it was only going to work with IOS7, which I dont have.

    It works fine on 6, as said set a code and lock it.
