I found my I phone, and need to set it so it knows its found
iOS 11.2.1

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPhone? What have you tried so far?

Going to Icloud. Right now phone still says Lost Phone and I can't access it. It has my contact # if someone finds it

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
