I lost an iPod 5, with iOS 7.1.1. It had Find My Iphone enabled. WiFi and GPS were off. Within a couple of hours of losing it, I went to iCloud, and set Lost Mode for the iPod. I also set a custom message for it to display my phone contact number. And I also set Notify me when found.
Yesterday I received a contact in my phone about the iPod, thanks to the custom message. I guess this means that the iPod went online.
But I did never receive any email notification.
Why is that?
