    I have the same question, Find My Phone doesn't work if you have location off ? But that's pretty stupid.

    Ahhh... Why people are so stupid. You turned of Location [GPS]. How the Find My Phone knows where you are??

    Then why don't any of the Microsoft WP instructions mention having to have Location turned on? See this: "For the Find My Phone service to work, your phone needs a battery charge, a cellular data connection, and must be turned on."

    I thought there was at least built in GPS that this service would use without having to have Location turned on, like for 911 emergencies? Either way I know how it works now and will leave Location on from now on just in case.
