I can't set up "Find my iphone," because it only tells me where the iPhone that I AM HOLDING IN MY HAND is. I have tried to set up three iphones to this account, and two iPads. The only device that it shows on the "All Devices" screen is the iPhone that I AM HOLDING IN MY HAND.

I know where that one is, because I know where my hand is.

Why won't all my other devices show up? I have location services turned on, the app is turned on. Apple support communities has a million threads that talk about this. A lot of them are a few years old. Some of them have people saying that the "new Iphone 3s might have some cool new features that will help."

I hate Apple if I can't track these devices. I have three iPads and three iPhones that I told somebody that I could set up. But now stupid Apple isn't letting me figure out how to do it. This looked easy....

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Well, I know that it is supposed to. Today, when I try to go back to look at whatever it was that I was doing wrong, it's like looking for Atlantis. It just seems to be lost to mankind - the whole website is just gone.

SOOOOO I am downloading the app, getting the stack of devices all back out... again.

F'rill this is how? ugh.

Thank You! I did this and it worked for all but 1 iPad and 1 iPhone... I think there is a catch with those two, though.

But yeah, it worked, Thank you!

It has been my experience that if something is lost, look in the last place you'd expect it to be. Chances are, it will be there.
