Thanks. I already use Lookout, which is, indeed still working.
I cleared the Google Play Services data, which basically re-registered the phone on Android Device Manager (it sees it as a new phone, different from the phone I'd registered back in May) and now Android Device Manager works.
(I'm having issues setting up remote lock and erase, but that's more likely to be my own damn fault.)
Make sure you are not hooked up to WiFi, and make sure you have your location settings all enabled. For some reason it won't work if the phone is using WiFi.
Weird. It finds me better if I have WiFi on. I'm not hooked up to a WiFi connection, though -- it's just on.
In any event, I had all my location settings correct, and it would not find me at all yesterday, until (following Google's help instructions) I cleared data on Google Play Services and restarted the phone. At which point it worked fine, although it now seems to think I have two different S4s, the one registered in May and the one registered in November.
Am still wondering if anyone else has had to do this since 4.3 as well, or if I'm just lucky.
Or... wait... d'you think the FDR I did after the 4.3 update had something to do with it?
Yup. It was on at all times. As far as I know, neither 4.3 or any other update had turned it off.
(Location services was also on. I can't entirely recall if I'd had to turn location services back on after the Factory Data Reset, but it was definitely on. I'm one of the few(?) people who actually like google knowing where I am.)
