    Hi all,
    I am unable to see the map option for my phone in the "Find my phone " Option that windows has for locating lost phones.
    I am able to ring my phone.
    Its just that its not visible on a map like it should be.
    Dont know if the feature is available here in India,
    My data settings are on.
    phone battery is 90%
    Location is turned on.

    Please let me know if you know what i am doin wrong or is this feature simply not available for WP available in India.

    The feature is available in India, it has always showed the location of my phones (WP7 and 8) on the map. As you said it also successfully rings your phone.

    Under "find my phone" settings on your phone, do you have both the options enabled? Specifically the second one which says: "Save my phone's location periodically and before the battery runs out to make it easier to find"

    Ok, I found out the problem.
    Microsoft's Find My Phone website does not show the option to find the phone on map when you're using the Indian version of website: https://www.windowsphone.com/en-in/my/find

    To enable this feature, just use the US English version:
    https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/my/find

    Hi Techno Freak,
    Thank you for your reply.
    I tried login in using the US link for website you posted still that option is not visible(picture attached)
    Also as for your earlier query of whether i have enabled both options in my cell phone settings.Well the Find my phone setting in my cell has just only one option "Send apps to my phone using push notifications" ...Thats it the option that you have written is not on here(picture attached).Please help.
