    Find My iPhone: Can you add other people's devices?

    Is it possible to track other user's devices on "find My iPhone". For example, multiple members of the family have unique mobile me addresses, can they be tracked in one spot? or Can you add multiple mobile me accounts on one phone (in the configuation steps in settings) and track it that way?

    It would be pointless to search for your own device with the App on that device. If you can use the App, the device is not lost. You use the Find My iPhone App to find someone else's iPhone. You would need to know the user name and password of the other user to find his iPhone. For someone else to use the Find My iPhone App to find your iPhone, you must setup either a MobileMe account on your iPhone or the free account allowed with iOS 4.2.1. They must then have the user name and password for your account to find your phone.

    Good question. I tried adding someone else's iTunes user name/password on my iPhone as an additional MobileMe account, which worked via the e-mail verification process, however, upon trying to turn on the Find My iPhone feature, it gave a warning that doing so would disable the Find My iPhone feature under my own MobileMe account. So it appears, each iPhone can only be found under a single MobileMe account, although it doesn't have to be your own. If you want to track your family members, you can add a MobileMe account on each of their phones using your own iTunes user name, but that precludes them from using their own MobileMe account on that phone.
