Starting on one of the 4.x versions you could enable find my iphone on that firmware by using your Apple idea as the login for a MobileMe email under Mail, Contacts, Calendars. It only allowed you to activate the Find My iPhone service.
It was during the pre-launch of iCloud (and the fall of MobileMe )
It seems the page on Apple's KB doesnt show the method anymore...

Find My iPhone is only supported in a Primary iCloud account. Accounts set up in Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Add Account>iCloud are secondary accounts that don't support this feature.
I really don't see how this ever worked. It is my understanding that all access to iCloud services require iOS 5 or higher, and that legacy access to former MobileMe services using iOS 4 were terminated when iCloud officially launched.
But if you want to try to troubleshoot this anyway, there are some things you can try in this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4006.

Well it's been working for the past year or two :/
It's unbelievable how "clean" they make things when you want to look up things that use to work.
I just wish it would say something like "cannot connect" or something instead of taking my info and acting like it works.

As I remember there was a standalone "Find my iPhone" version. I thought that was for iPhone 4 only. Seems that was ending when MobileMe stops working.
