    I reset and let my son use my windows phone. We hadn't setup a live id for him yet and he has already managed to lose it. Is it possible to use the find/lock/erase functionality using the live id information previously associated with the phone or are we hosed?

    You had a phone set up with Windows Live ID-A. You reset your device and your son created Windows Live ID-B? Is that what you're saying? That's not the most coherent post.

    You could just reset the device again and then set up an ID. Or, just take the ID he made and add information to it? Again, I'm not sure what your problem is.

    Phone was setup with Windows Live ID-A, phone was reset, a new Live ID had not been setup yet, then it was lost.

    He or she is asking if they can use the find phone feature will still work using Windows Live ID-A (even though the phone had already been reset).

    Why not try it first. Login in to Windowsphone and look for the phone. The problem will is if Location and Find My Phone in the phone's setting has been deactivated or if the person who found the phone turned it off then you won't be able to find it.

    I'm guessing no because there was no account to report it to every few hours.
