Find My Phone - Sound

Hi I though I may have lost my phone, so I attempted to use the find my phone on my xperia, works great except if no one is actually playing with the phone, ie. the lock screen hasn't been brought uo since the phone was "lost" also it would probably be a good idea to have a sound actually play when the sound alert is actually activated, something to override the fact the phone may be on silent. I gather if you can override the pin code on the lock screen, you can probably override whatever sound settings are currently configured on the phone to play an alert at max volume and vibrate. (since my phone was on silent, I got no noise from it nor did it vibrate)
