Find My iPhone is great for when you lose your phone. You can make it play a sound, even with the ringer off, find it’s location, and remotely lock it. Sadly, it only works if you have an active data connection, or if it’s connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot (which, if it’s lost, chances are it’s not close to a recognized hotspot). Not to worry, as with this simple tutorial, you can make it easier to find your iPhone! Please note that your device needs to be jailbroken for this to work.
How to find your iPhone with no internet
Step 1. Make sure you have Activator installed from Cydia.
Step 2. Open it and select Anywhere.
Step 3. Select the “Build” button in the top right corner and then select “Received Message”. Leave the “Sender” field blank and enter a custom message that you want to send to find your phone. I’m using “FindMyiPhone”. Save the event.
Step 4. Now select your newly made event. You can now select what you want to happen when your phone receives this message. I personally have two events. One is “FindMyiPhone”. It’s simply turns on the ringer, turns the ringer volume to 100%, and plays a sound.
The other one I have is “LostMyiPhone”. This one is much more complex. I have it so it turns on BioProtect, Bluetooth, Cellular Data, Flashlight, Location Services, LTE, Ringer, Viberation, Wi-Fi, turns off Auto Brightness, Do Not Disturb, f.lux, turns up the media and ringer volume 100%, displays a message that says “This iPhone is lost”, along with a phone number to call. It also speaks “This iPhone is lost”, then plays an alarm, while vibrating the phone.
