People In Tech Support Must Be Saints
Last night I get a phone call from my dad. He's lost his iPhone. Being the AMAZING son that I am, I helped walk him through how to use the Find My iPhone app.
After being lead around the yard and mistaking a goose for the sonar ping, my dad fessed up and admitted to possibly roto-tilling his phone into the dirt in the garden. As you can see from this screenshot, I think he's right. Since the phone's battery is dead, there's no longer a Find My iPhone icon, it's more of a "Here Lies My iPhone" icon.
Download Find My iPhone from the App Store.
