    With a single user Mobile account, is it possible for me to have both my iPhone and, let's say, my mom's iPhone set up with Find My iPhone and Remote Wipe? Is this possible on a Family account?

    I believe you can, as long as each MM account is set up in their respective iPhones (if that makes sense)

    Yes, but all she (or anyone else) would have to do is go into the settings and flip a switch to access your .me email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks.

    On the me.com site, how do you select between the iPhone and the iPad? Perhaps I'm just missing something. Just curious, are you on the MobileMe mail beta? I am. I just looking for a connection or a work around. Thanks.

    Do you have Mobile Me set up on both devices?

    FYI - It is my iPhone that won't show up on the web. I restored the phone (iPhone 3G). I turned Find My iPhone off and back on to see if some internal setting was incorrect.

    I just got off the phone with AppleCare. MobileMe and Find My iPhone can only be used with 1 device at a time. If you have a family pack, you need to setup on account on the iPad and another on the iPhone. That doesn't work when you have 8 devices for 4 people with MobileMe accounts.

    They suggested I post feedback to the MobileMe developers at
