    Missing \ Stolen iPad

    I believe we may have had an iPad pinched but cant be to sure, find my device was active and the iPad was using ios 6
    but it's not appearing on the map either because it has not been switched on or it has been wiped clean.

    Is there anyway of tracking the device via its serial number or do I just have to bite the bullet and presume its gone forever ???

    They probably haven't switched it on yet and connected it to their wifi. Patience. The muppets will eventually reveal themselves.

    Is it a 3G iPad. You will be able to get the IMEI number black listed.

    No sadly not they are just iPad 2 16GB wifi, i know with iOS 7 you can lock the device even if its been wiped but not sure if that works with iOS 6.

    we use lookout which tracks, locks and screams at the touch of a button. caught a few teachers out when they thought they'd sneak one out for the weekend.

    It sounds similar to an app we use called 'fone home' you can even ask that to take a photograph when its switched on then it emails you to say the picture has been taken, sadly not all the iPads have been upgraded to iOS 7 yet so they don't all have it installed and this was one of them.
