Mobile Me and iPhone Find me - works almost instantly

Already on you can go to account settings and find the new Find My iPhone feature.  I just tried sending a message to my phone "Please call for reward for return".  It appeared within 5 seconds!  I am not sure if this works using Wifi (Internet) or some backend message over the carrier (perhaps specific text message) - but it works.

Theres also an option to remotely wipe your iphone if you really do give up on finding it.

Update:  To allow full mapping location the mobile me setting is on the iPhone under Mail/Contact Settings.  Slider there to turn on find me service.
