    How long does a device make the pinging noise when you tell it to play a sound so you can find it? minutes, hour, forever?:confused:

    The few times I've tested it, it's been within seconds.

    Wrong end of the stick I think :)


    I just tried it and got sick of it before it stopped. If you use it to find a misplaced iPad around the home, it's great. Also good for scaring people if you leave it at home.

    So it stopped in a few minutes or like a half hour?

    Should have been clearer sorry :). I stopped it myself after about 10 minutes.

    It works rather quickly.. but you have to remember if its off it won't do anything. It could have been stolen, died, etc.

    I lost my iPhone once and the only reason the guy returned it was because he couldn't get the ringing to stop :)

    So, I am guessing you do not have an ipad or iphone.

    Are you thinking of getting one?
