HOW TO: Set Up ‘Find My iPhone’ Feature On Your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch Running iOS 4.2.3

Apparently today Apple will push iOS 4.2.3 and with it we will get the ‘Find My iPhone’ feature for free on any iPhone 4, iPad and iPod Touch 4G. Let’s see how to set it up:

NOTE: save your blobs and do not update to iOS 4.2.3 as soon as it drops

Find My iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch — the MobileMe feature that helps you locate your missing device and protect its data — is now free on any iPhone 4, iPad, or fourth-generation iPod touch running iOS 4.2.3 Once you set it up, you can find your lost device on a map, display a message on its screen, remotely set a passcode lock, and initiate a remote wipe to delete your data. And if you eventually find your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can restore everything from your last backup.

HOW TO:

1. Make sure your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch is running iOS 4.2. If you’re creating a free account for the first time, you need an iPhone 4.

2. Tap the Settings icon and choose Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

3. Tap the Add Account button and select MobileMe.

4. Enter your Apple ID and password. If you have an iTunes Store account or have ordered from the Apple Online Store, you already have an Apple ID. If you don’t have an Apple ID, tap Create Free Apple ID and follow the onscreen instructions. If you’re already a MobileMe subscriber, enter your me.com or mac.com email address and password.

5. Verify your account. If your MobileMe account says “Not Verified,” check your email inbox for a message from Apple. Click Verify Now and sign in with your Apple ID.
If you don’t see a verification email in your inbox, select your MobileMe account and tap Resend Verification Email.

6. Return to the MobileMe screen and switch on Find My iPhone. When the Find My iPhone message appears, tap Allow.
