    Need a recommendation for iPhone locator App for iPhone 4s
    Hello everyone,

    Just received my first iPhone, it's an iPhone 4s. I would like a recommendation for a good app that will act as a locator and a lock out if my phone is stolen or lost. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, preferably from the App store. Thanks much.

    Specs:
    2.8 GHz MacBook Pro 10.11, 8 GB mem, iPhone 6+
    Check out a piece of software called Find My Phone. Once things are set up (easy) you can login from a computer and find the phone. You can also wipe the content of the phone if you like.
    When I first tried this app it missed the phone by a few hundred feet.

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, New AppleTV (4?)
    +1 for Find My iPhone.
    If you have iOS7 and have activated Find My iPhone you can still wipe/lock it even the phoned is erased and restored by the thief etc.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Yes that's iOS7
    The first number is the major release point i.e. 7 for iOS7 the next two digits denote sub-releases i.e. not long after iOS7 (7.0.0) was released a bug fix update came taking it to 7.0.3
