Nokia Lumia 520 "Find my Phone"

I cannot get the find my Phone functionality working consistently on my Nokia Lumia 520.

 

I have a data and Wifi connection.

I am not in airplane mode.

I have SMS functionality.

Location Services are On.

Services/Find my Phone is Off. When I slide the option to On, it remains off when I go back into settings!

 

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I have the same problem with the toggle being "ON" when checking under "find my phone", but saying it's "Off" in the"Settings" page. But the function WORKS - I can successfully log on and find and ring my phone.

 

Still annoying though.

soft reset your phone via pressing power key + volume down key (8-10seconds). Then sync your microsoft a/c then u will get features of find my phone
