Today I lost my iPhone - Find my iPhone said it was in my home.

I rang it and it was ringing but must have had the ring turned off - something I do not do.

A search did not reveal this phone. so I went out and used a cafe wi fi which revealed the phone in a bar I went to earlier - in the pub it indicated that the phone was in the yard where I had been sitting - not found

I return home and find it says it is here which is not.

If it was at my home this would have been indicated when I was in the cafe

When in the bar serial searches indicated the yard outside the bar building

Some advice as to why when I am at home the system thinks my phone is here.

you should be able to make the phone play an alert tone even if the volume is switched off.

1. It sometimes takes Find My iPhone up to a full minute to refresh itself from the last known location.

2. The alert tone WILL play even if the volume is switched off.
