    Ok, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, and why this is happening.

    So, me and my girlfriend have the "Find My iPhone" app. We both have our accounts with our emails and pws.

    For some reason, whenever I log into my account with my iPhone, it will show the location of my phone.

    Whenever she logs into her account, with her iphone, it will show the location of my iphone, no hers.

    For devices, I just have my device, but I want to add more.

    I basically want both of our iPhones to have 2 devices on each account, so that way, in case if one of us loses our phones, the other can use their phone to find it.

    I need some help. I'm thinking of going to the Apple store on Wednesday to talk to a sales associate about how to make it work (don't think i would need a genius for this), but if you guys can help me figure it out before wednesday, that will be better.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just log onto YOUR email using her phone. Activate the Find my iPhone feature and then you'll be able to find find two devices. You can't use separate accounts. You need to be using the same email account.

    No, you don't get it.

    She's logging into HER account, with HER phone, and she see's the location of MY iphone.

    when I log into MY account, with MY phone, I see the location of MY iphone.

    I basically want to be able to log onto my account, and have the opportunity to find whichever iPhone i want.

    I mean, look at the photo. It just has my iPhone, I want there to be 2 iPhones, mines and hers, is this possible? I mean, there is just plenty of space in the bottom to have multiple devices, I just can't figure out how to add more.

    I don't think you understood what I said. Turn off Find my iPhone on both of your phones. Both of you pick one account (Either yours or hers) and you both set up the same email and turn on "Find my iPhone" on your email account. (The same email account on both iPhone's) Then you'll be able to find each others phones.
