    Hey guys.
    Since Find my iphone is only free for iphone 4 and not 3gs or earlier, AND mobileme is closing at 30june, is there no way to protect my iphone from thief?even if i pay?

    Where does it say that it's only free for the iPhone 4? Then again, I don't really have to worry about this since I paid the $99 for the full MobileMe subscription back in July, and it was just extended for free until July of next year.

    I don't see why you couldn't sign up for the free service and then set up a MobileMe account on your iPhone and download the 'Find My iPhone' App from the App Store.

    It says its only available for the iPhone 4 when you try to download the app "Find My iPhone" from the App Store.

    Well i have the iphone app but it requires a @me.com account, which i don't have and cannot create.
    From apple's mobileme site:
    So what can i do?
    From apple's Find my IPhone site:
    soooo... to enable Find my Iphone on my 3gs i have to buy an iphone 4 or ipad or 4th gen ipod touch first?? What kind of crap is that?

    You can use someone else's iPhone 4, iPad 2 or new iPod touch to activate a free mobile me account and then you can use the free find my iPhone feature on a 3GS and 3G.

    My sister's 3GS has find my iphone enabled and it works fine. I set it up originally on my iphone 4.

    cool. Do you guys use the same account?
    My brother's buying an ipad 2 soon so I'll get the feature from him, but I'd prefer to use different accounts. Don't wanna be tracked unless lost :p
