Does the message you send to your phone with the telephone number you provide still show up if

you change your service to another phone? So my iphone wont have service anymore and im wondering

if the app will still provide the find my iphone message I sent to it with even without service on it.


iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3

    It will call the number regardless of what phone it's tied to.

    No, if i change my service to another phone, my iphone will no longer have service. I am wondering if find my iphone will still show the message i sent to it through icloud will still work since it wont have service any longer?

    Let me rephrase:

    It will call the number regardless of what phone the number is associated with.

     

    In other words...

    It will call whatever phone is using the number you specified.

    I want to find my iphone. My question is, will the iphone show the message sent via "Find my iphone" even when I terminate the cell phone service from the iphone. Disregard the other phone.

     

     

    (find my iphone provides a lost mode and you can send the iphone a message through icloud, i want to make sure the message will get to the iphone without service. My phone is still lost, and if found I want the message to appear)

    Now I see.

     

    It will still display the message, but the finder won't be able to call you from the iPhone since you terminated the service. They'd have to use another phone.
