    I would advise EVERYONE to hit the link below and set your phone up for remote wipe in case your phone gets lost or stolen. Google has done a great job in making the process very simple to do.

    Make sure your phone has an internet connection while setting it up or it won't find it :rolleyes:

    If you open the Google Settings app, you see the Android Device Manager? If so, my guess is wait and try testing again later (FWIW I'm having issues with both of my devices)

    Do you have location services enabled on your devices?

    The Samsung App setting to turn it on never showed up on my GS3.
