iCloud setup and FMI activation
FMI (Find My iPhone) is the protection feature for your Apple iPhone, which you activate as soon as you have purchased your device. When activated, your device will ask you to login to your iCloud account or create one if you don’t have it. It fairly simple to create new iCloud account, all you need is and email address and a password, later you will need to link your credit or debit card to your account if you wish to download apps from App Store. Most of the apps are free and you will not be charged for using them. Once you have all set up, your iPhone or any other Apple device will activate the device with an automatic service called FMI – “find my iphone” (it helps you locate your device if you lose it).
