I'm trying to set up my phone so that "Find My Phone" will work.
A couple of things are confusing:
The interface on the phone has two checkboxes which suggest they don't need to checked, just that it'll work better.
actually the wording on my device is slightly different but the meaning is the same
But when I try the service with both of these unchecked, the service didn't work (in that my little test at windowsphone.com reported that "Sorry we couldn't find your phone, please try later"). When I try it with them checked, it does find the phone. And yet the wording is highly suggestive that they're optional.
After getting it working once, I then persisted with a few more tests and windowsphone.com threw up this screen:
... in which the text 1) suggests filling this in is a mandatory preliminary for Find My Phone to work (it isn't, since I had already got it to work once, without ever filling this in) and 2) is highly unclear whether checking the I authorise Microsoft ... checkbox is a prerequisite for Find My Phone to work.
Can anyone help make all this simple. As a bare minimum what do I need activate on on the phone, and what do I need to activate at windowsphone.com for all this to work?
