miFon User’s Guide

A. FInd Your Lost or Misplaced Phone

MIFON App has to be setup & activated in Your Phone first

You can use MIFON’s SMX feature to find your lost or misplaced phone by Sending a SMS text from any phone to your lost or misplaced phone :

mifon xxx siren

(Replace xxx with  your Smx password)

Once the SMS is received by your phone, it will wail a siren , even if the phone was set on silent mode. If the  phone is within earshot you can find it easily.  Many MIFON users have found their phones using this feature from behind their sofas or hidden under a pile of clothes.

In case SIREN can’t be heard ( the phone may not be near your)   you can use MIFON’s SMX display message command to display a message on the phone’s screen , such that the finder can reach you back by sending a text from any phone to your lost or misplaced phone:

mifon xxx display This is a LOST phone. Please contact owner on 99999-11111

(Replace xxx with  your Smx password)

You can also lock your phone using sending a SMS text to your lost or misplaced phone:

mifon xxx lock 9999

(Replace xxx with  your Smx password)

This will ensure that unauthorised user cannot easily access your lost or misplaced phone
