Hi, I have an iPod touch 3G and want to set up "Find My iPod Touch" on it, as described here:


I'm running OS 4.3.4 (8K2) and have iTunes 10.4.1.  I have an AppleID but not a MobileMe account.  I understand that since iCloud is replacing MobileMe, they are not accepting any more subscriptions (not that I'm anxious to pay $99/year for what will now be a free service).  I'm not sure I want to create a new account anyway, because all the apps I own are linked to my current Apple ID which is not an email address. 


I have a program called "Hidden" for my Macbook which works via wi-fi.  If I lose the Macbook, I log into the Hidden website and it triggers the Macbook to  broadcast its location via wi-fi (assuming it's within range of a signal).  So I would assume that since an iPod touch has wi-fi capabilities, it could do something similar even though it's not directly linked to the internet like an iPhone.


Does anybody know how I can get this going?


My son has an iPad 2 that is wi-fi only and I would like to set up the same for him.


Thanks for any help you can give!

iPod touch, iOS 4.3.3, 3rd Generation iPod Touch-no camera
