Lost iPad

Actually think it got stolen. Looked all over for it, think my 5 year old daughter took it outside while I was working on my moms galaxie and left it out there. I used the find my iPad app and kept hitting the button that makes it play a sound. Walked in the garage and heard a sound, opened it and walked 3 houses down and it got louder. When I got a couple houses down I could hear people talking where it sounded like the iPad was making noise from because their windows were open and then it stopped. I figured 1am was a little late to be knocking on someone's door basically accusing them of stealing something. I'm so angry I figured the best thing to do is to wait until the morning. My guess is they will deny having found it outside or stolen it but I might get lucky. I blame myself for not checking to see if my daughter had it when we went back inside. Just ranting, thanks for listening.

I'd knock too. I remember back in my highschool days i would "find" ipods, iphones, cell phones and google how to wipe them clean and sell them but times have changed so I'm sure it's more difficult now

I didn't want to be knocking on doors after midnight so I waited until this morning. Of course I got the responses I knew I'd get. The last door I knocked on happened to be the house I'm pretty sure I heard the iPad beeping from just happened to be a guy that was outside yesterday when I was working on the car. He had came over and introduced himself to my wife. He was outside with his kid. I'm not 100% sure it was them so I'm not just going to accuse them, that's a dbag move. I'd feel like a real dbag if I found it at home. I have looked all over though and no luck. I did think it was a coincidence though that I heard the sound it makes when you use the find my iPad app though coming from that area. My guess if he did have it its gone now, saw him leaving shortly after. I had told him I heard the sound coming from somewhere by his house. I already set it up so if it connects to wifi it will delete the hard drive.

That's scary especially with the cloud and all. The movie "Sex Tape" comes to mind.

Ha no worries about the sex tape as there is nothing like that on there. Only info I had on there was passwords for my video game accounts, nothing money related just stat info. Only pics were of my car. As soon as they log on the iPad should erase the hard drive so they won't be able to use my iTunes account. Everything was passcode protected. My daughter already bought me a new iPad Air 2, I had the iPad 2 so it's a huge upgrade.

Only if you have an iPad with cell data. GPS also only works on iPads with cell. You can get a Bluetooth GPS box for wifi iPads.

It will only give you location if you are connected to wifi with mine because it's a wifi only model. I use my smart phone when I'm out if needed, the iPad ad is for recreational use at home and work.

I'm just glad I'm not 10 years younger, I would have handled the situation much differently. Just not worth it, got to look at the whole picture.

Obviously they needed it, if I found an iPad I would've returned it to the owner. That's just the way I am though. Never looking to get over on someone led, that's childish.

Mine too. I think it has to be connected to WiFi though. Activating find my iPad will show me whether it's at home or at work. Handy when I've misplaced and can't remember if I left it at work or at home.

My cell phone walked off back in November. I was able to use Google to lock it down before they turned it off at least but never got it back. Lost a lot of pictures from like March 2013 to Nov 2014. I mean a lot of them went onto FB and Photobucket but its still ****ty.


They need to make an app that'll overload the battery and make it explode in the thief's hand...
