    The only way to locate any lost/stolen iPhone or iPod touch is through Find My Phone or a similar app. However, this requires that Find My Phone be setup/activated, on your phone, before it was lost/stolen. You would then login at & try to locate it. This requires the phone be turned on & have an Internet connection. There is no other way to locate a lost/stolen iPhone. Apple can't/won't help you. Report the loss to the Police, & Insurance company. Change all of your passwords.

    I am currently an owner of an iPod Touch 4th generation, running IOS 6.1.2. I will be glad to help solve your problem with your iPod/iPad/or iPhone.


    • Yes, there is! Follow these steps:


    Lost iPod/iPad/or iPhone:


    If you have turned on “Find my iPod/iPad/or iPhone recently, then you can find it, by following these steps:

    1. Log into with the Apple I.D. Associated with your iPod/iPad/or iPhone
    2. Click on Devices
    3. Click on the device that has gone lost
    4. Either put it in Lost Mode (suggested), or make it play a sound. (PLEASE NOTE: DEVICE MUST BE CONNECTED TO WIFI IN ORDER FOR THESE TO HAPPEN)



    Hope that helps!

    If none of the above solutions work, could you please reply back as soon as possible, as I will try to find another solution to your problem.
