Troubleshooting FindMyiPhone In iOS 4.2.1

After updating to iOS 4.2.1, I was puzzled to get a "cannot access xxxx@mac.com, pleave verify settings" error message on all my iDevices. As my MobileMe email address & bookmarks were working, it took me a while to figure out why I got this error message. As I soon realized that the FindMyiPhone feature wasn't functional, I began trying to figure out why. After restarting all my iDevices multiple times and checking on the MobileMe website if they could be located, I finally figured out what to do. The solution was actually quite simple as I just went to my MobileMe account settings, deactivated FindMyiPhone and then turned it back on on all my iDevices. I haven't seen the "cannot access xxxx@mac.com, pleave verify settings" since and FindMyiPhone is now fully functional! I hope this will help others!

MobileMe had some maintenance going on today. Nobody should have those issues now ;-)

Still having the issue. I don't have a mobile me account. Using a gmail account.
