iPhone stolen...help

Hey guys, looking for some help regarding an iphone that's been stolen. (My bro's)

What are some of the steps you can take to either find it, or prevent the douchebag that took it from using it?

I know mobile me helps big time, but it didnt have it installed...

Thx

Sweet, just downloaded the app for mine. I guess my brother's Phone is done for though, since he didnt have the app?

Should apple be notified with the Serial# that it's been stolen?

I'm pretty sure you don't have tothe app on the phone, but it makes it easier. Google search Find My iPhone, and you can find a wealth of knowledge. I believe you pull it up in iTunes.

As long as Location Services was left activated on his phone, you should be able to find it. You can also shut down the phone from Find My iPhone.. So that it is useless for the thief.

Definitely call Apple and let them know it was stolen, they may can find it for you.

Thanks for the help Blake...we never found his phone, but now mine and the new one he bought run Find my iPhone, definitely a must have for anyone that has these 600$ phones

and you're right, I don't think it needs the app installed, but the MobileMe account needs to be activated in the settings
