Directing all the open threads to here now, and closing any new threads.

Now that OS4.2 is a unified release, this section should be the place to have all the posts.

It's not free, you need a MobileMe account :(

Apparently Find my iPhone\iPad is the only "free" MobileMe feature that is coming with iOS 4.2. You still need a full blown account for everything else MobileMe.

Is there any way of downloading the iOS update without having to actually plug your device in? I wont be home till late but can access my Mac remotely from the office?

Cheers

Hmm, I still think you have to pay after the initial trial period, but I may be wrong :)
There's nothing to indicate it's only a trial. The small print definitely uses the word free:

Create a free Find My iPhone account on any iPhone 4, iPad or iPod touch (4th generation) running iOS 4.2. Once you create an account on a qualifying device, use your Apple ID and password to enable Find My iPhone on your other devices running iOS 4.2.
Apple (United Kingdom) - iPad - Find My iPad Set-up

I stand corrected :D

Its also only the Find my iPhone piece that is free.

Mail, iDisk and everything else is still subscription only.

What is to stop Mr Burglar man finding (or stealing...grrr!!) your phone and just going into the settings and turning off the find my phone feature? Is it pin protected?

Or just turning GPS off. Surely it's the first thing that even the most stupid of thieves will do.

As long as I could wipe off the sensitive data, that would be a result for me, but I hear what you're saying.

I think you could still do that without GPS being on. Unless they turn the phone off? I suppose it's one step closer to finding it but not perfect. Certainly not worth paying for though!

I would imagine if they can remotely alter settings, pin codes, etc, then they could remotely enable GPS.

Will this be for the 3GS too?

If GPS is off it uses Assisted GPS like on the WiFi only iPads to find it.
