    I'm really screwed got so many date in it.

    And I off "Find My iPhone" :(((( I really have no idea why I did that.

    If Find My iPhone is off on the lost phone itself, even an Apple representative wouldn't be able to help you find it. The only way anybody on this forum could help you is if they actually find it somewhere, so your odds aren't looking terribly good.

    Why would you turn off find my iphone? There is no reason that should be off if you plan on keeping it...

    No there is really nothing you can do except report it as stolen so they can blacklist the IMEI number.

    Nothing you can do besides calling it and hoping someone will answer and return it to you.
    Besides that you're out of luck.
    Take it as a lesson learned.

    While hardware is important and all, much more important and valuable is the information on it... because that could take a LONG time to replace and it can also be exploited.

    Hopefully you had it password locked. So they just wipe it and that's it.

    I turn Find my iPhone on right before I lose it. You know, to conserve battery. :)

    Call and hope that someone answers. If they don't answer, your phone is about as gone as the wind.

    It's like losing anything else. If you leave a book somewhere and it's gone when you come back, there ain't no tracking it. Buy a new one.
