    I'm resident in the UK and use a Lumia 950XL. I executed find my phone via my Windows account and nothing was returned. Later checked that WiFi or 4G was not activated on the phone.

    Can I use Find my Phone without having WiFi or 4G enabled?

    I can't find a push notification option within my Lumia settings.

    Thanks.

    Dave.

    I could be wrong but I think the OP knows where the phone is. I think he wants to know how to make find my phone work if he ever needs it.

    Without some form of data connection all you can do is locate the phone via GPS which, on its own, isn't very accurate.
