Adding Find my iPhone to your iPhone

iPhone users should certainly take advantage of the free Find my iPhone feature that apple provides for the latest generation devices (iPhone 4, any iPad, and the latest gen iPod Touch). Following is the lesson I put together for a client to help their end users set this up on their iPhones. I have the iPad version and one on how to use the service. If anyone needs those lessons, please, don’t be shy and ask in the comments.
