Isn't this kind of pointless? The Lost Mode already provides an option for the owner to insert a message and phone number that will be displayed on the phone. Yes, maybe someone that finds a lost iPhone won't be able to immidiately return it to it's owner and have to wait for the owner to put it in Lost Mode. But still, it seems to be a non-issue.
Am I missing something?
I love the concept tho.
This is an interesting feature concept. I can definitely see the value, but I think it relies too heavily on the finder of a lost iPhone knowing about this feature in the UI. I just don't see it being used in most cases.
Also, the message method of reporting might conflict with some users' message settings, carrier service plans, etc.
