So last Friday I had a get in the gymnasium. There were rows of desks that we had to sift in. We were told to put our phones on the ground next to our desks. A few people's phones weren't there after the test.

Anyway, I gave my friend my iTunes password so he could install some apps, but he kept using it to set my phone off during class with find my iPhone, so I turned it off. I also turned off iCloud because it was full and wanted me to pay for more memory. Is there any way besides tracking my SIM to find my phone?

Not really. Your friend sounds like a douche though. Why would you give him your password at all if why didn't you change it when he got whatever the heck he wanted?

It was only for one day, I was going to change it when I got home, but my phone got stolen. And he is a douche, he's not even taking responsibility for he fact that I can't track my phone now.

Not that I ever would but If I stole an iPhone the first things I would do is power it off, remove the sim card, then put it up on Craigslist.

Find-my-iphone doesn't do much of anything if your phone gets stolen, so I wouldn't blame your friend since it wouldnt have made a difference.

Sorry to hear you lost your phone :(

I got it off eBay, but it was bought from a store 20 minutes away and I was given the receipt. The mic stopped working at one stage so I went in to the Apple Store to get it fixed and they replaced the phone, I wasn't given a new box.

----------

Most of the people at my school are pretty damn stupid, that's why I'm confident I'll get it back. A good example:
Kids phone gets stolen during test.
Thief brags about it.
Thief didn't check who's desk the phone was next to when he took it.
Thief bragging that he took a phone during test.
He was bragging to he kid he stole it from.
The kid he stole it from is 6 foot 2.

On something like this yes. I would never give out any iTunes information because that password is the same as your apple id one. So he could have logged onto your apple id on his device and bought many apps if you had a credit card on there.

Probably the dumbest story I've read this year.

I hope you aren't over 21, OP.

So you're saying that if a friend abuses your trust, it's all your fault?
Yes, it's your fault for giving away personal information to someone who you can't trust or don't have enough trust in. Only family members or close relatives should you give away this type of info to.

Welcome to the real world.

I speak fluent typo...

What does "I had a get" slang for?
Allow me to try and translate... I'm fluent in typo and I dabble in gibberish.

So last Friday I had a get in the gymnasium. (I had a test to take at school. Based on the number of test-takers, they held it in the gym.) There were rows of desks that we had to sift in. (There were desks to SIT in).

Sounds like it's jethro talk for, "get together", or something along those lines.

Two different answers. I guess I have to trust the sausage king of chicago.

When I let my friends download apps using my Apple ID I type it in for them, so they won't know it forever and be able to do dumb stuff like send alerts to it using Find my iPhone.

He talking about testing a test in a gymnasium, from that alone you should be able to articulate that he's in high school.
Finals are sometimes taken in college gyms as well, you know. I had to take 2 of them that way. Space is much harder to find in colleges because classes go past 3pm, unlike public schools, and college final exams go on for hours.
