I tried out the "Find my iPhone" feature available thru your MobileMe account and it works as well as expected. Meaning that GPS is only going to get you so close...and then you send it a signal and it makes a chirping sound. All fine and dandy except that Apple says it will make the sound even in Silent Mode. I'm sure it does. But, I was at the vets with a sick dog twice this weekend and once they left me with our file. I was using the camera to snap pics of all their blood work and other documentation. ( for no reason other than to have references when researching). Any-hoo... I turned down the sound so they couldn't hear the "camera snap" down the hall.
When I tried the iPhone signal feature for when it's lost.. it vibrated... but no sound came out since I had manually turned it down. Apple needs to let this signal override user settings.
