    Is there an app that will allow me to dial my iPhone 4 and cause it to ring even though the ringer is turned off? It stays on vibrate all the time, so it is difficult to locate when I set it down.

    With Find My iPhone you can play a sound even when the phone is on silent.

    There are a lot of one star ratings on that one. Is there anything to be concerned about?

    How do I activate the 2-minute ringer if I lose the phone and don't have another iOS device? Phone a friend?

    You can find and make the noise from a web browser.

    Apparently I have to sign up for a MobileMe account. It's not accepting my Apple ID. It says I have to use an email address.

    You need 4.2.1 installed to setup the free mobile me account.

    Not sure why there are 1 star ratings, that one was created by Apple themselves and should work seamlessly with the iphone. I've been using it since last year as part of MobileMe service and it works great for me, Luckily I havent had to use it from losing my phone, but I test it out all the time to make sure its working properly.

    You have to install that on the phone itself (the app)
