Customer Question
I like the Find...

I like the Find Friends on my phone and depend on it so people know where I am. Is there a sound that can notify me that someone is checking on me?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your phone?

IPhone 5s

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPhone?

I have no idea. I am old and not techy. Where do I find that?

Technician's Assistant: The Smartphone Technician will be able to walk you through that. How long has this been going on with your iPhone? What have you tried so far?

I haven t tried anything. I just want a sound when someone is searching for me onk Find Friends

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?

No thank you, ***** ***** I am not a tech expert
