    Is there a way to tell if I was using Find My Phone? I think it may be Default On these days, but not sure.

    I'm not 100% sure that I was signed in to iCloud, but I was using Photo Sharing with my family.

    When I log in to Find My Phone on iCloud in a browser window, I do see the device listed. I did not have iCloud backup turned on however.

    Thanks for any help.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    If you see the device listed when you log into iCloud then it was enabled.
    And no it's not a default.
    The user needs to turn it on themselves.
