How to Create a Free Find My iPhone Account

Apple has posted a quick guide on how to set up the free Find My iPhone service provided with iOS 4.2. Find My iPhone is a MobileMe service that helps you locate missing or stolen iOS devices, an extremely useful and valuable service.

To create a free account you need an iPhone 4, iPod touch 4 or iPad running iOS 4.2. Here are the steps:

  • Update to iOS 4.2
  • Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars

  • Add Account, choose MobileMe

  • Use your current Apple ID (iTunes Store account or Apple Online Store account). Or create a new one

  • Make sure that you verify your email

  • Under that MobileMe account you will see Find My iPhone, enable it and choose Allow

  • To test it just go to me, login and locate your device

If you don’t own any of these devices and still want the free Find My iPhone service: find a friend who have an iPhone 4, iPod touch 4 or iPad and create the free account on their devices.
