On a recent vacation trip I lost my Ipad (left it in the Airplane mag pouch) and on the next day lost my Iphone (slipped from my pocket and fell in my Hertz rental Car) I am normally a careful person and have never lost my mobile gadgets before. Apparently keeping track of family people in the hectic vacation and tracking the mobile gadgets proved too much for me. Mobileme to the rescue. Since I have mobileme, I thought, I can easily track, locate, lock and send a message to anyone who finds it. But alas , that was not the case. My Ipad is wifi only. So I couldn't locate it in mobile me as It never got connected to any internet in the next couple of days that I was desperately trying to locate. My airlines was helpless in locating and the cleaning crew got back saying there was no Ipad in my seat. But two days later I got a call from a person who had sat in my seat for the next leg of the flight. He found my Ipad, took my contact info from it and called me !! After heartfelt gratitude I arranged for my Ipad to get shipped to my address. The technology didn't help. Just plain old kindness from a stranger that got my Ipad back. My Iphone is Iphone4. You would expect atleast my iphone will show up in my findmyiphone app. Nope. My Iphone had lost charge and so it didn't show up. Not even the last place before it went out of charge. So I couldn't locate my Iphone either. I had sent an email ( yes an email !) to Hertz lost and found as I could never get them on phone. Lo and behold ! One week later an Hertz agent calls responding to my email. They have my Iphone !! Again, Just plain old kindness that got by Iphone and not the locator technology. I got both my Iphone and Ipad back . This is a miracle for me. My vacation reached anxiety peak as I kept loosing my expensive mobile gadgets. Though I can't have photos to fondly remember the random act of kindness by strangers, they will be part of my sweet memories of a, NOW, great vacation.
