    I ordered my new iphone 5 last night, to replace my 4S. This morning I checked Find my Phone on the cloud, and instead of locating my current 4S, it pinpointed my location on Infinite Loop/Apple HQ. :p I assume there is a warehouse of phones there and it's mistakenly locating my new phone??

    Not possible. You need to first connect a phone with iCloud before it will work. Because only you can do that by physically having the device, it won't show up in Find my iPhone until you enter your iCloud password into it. Apple doesn't do that, it is up to the end user.

    He is saying this because when you first load up find my iphone on icloud it shows apple hq. Once you click which device you want to find then it goes to where it is at.

    Yes, Tim is playing with your new (now used) iPhone as we speak. Sorry, but you're getting a used tire.

    Find my iPhone

    The default location is Apple's campus. It just isn't finding your device. On a side note, I found a mysterious second iPhone that is offline on my iCloud.com Find my iPhone app.

    ok... i tried the same thing as the op and he sure is an idiot....(i sold me iphone 4s) so when i just logged in and clicked find my iphone, it just shows you a map of apple campus...There is no arrow or pin or anything that says your iphone is there...its probably just a glitch.

    I can blame them, they have been waiting and waiting. I am somewhat excited but been through this so many times. Not as excited as I used to be but understand why others are.
