Hi
My husband misplaced his iPhone last night on his work break up, Find My IPhone is off. Is there any way we can locate it?

Thanks

This is a lesson - just hope somebody returns it.

 

But with Find My iPhone turned off you've pretty-much given somebody an iPhone once they've factory reset it as it won't be locked.

Text it - depending on how notifications are set up, it may display the text message on the lock screen. If someone nice picks it up, they can read the text, and call you back. If it's someone not so nice, well, bye bye phone.
