It Was Lost But Now is Found

It was lost but now is found.

What?

My cell phone. This cell phone.

Last evening I arrived home and realized my phone was missing. Oh no, surely I left it at the office. So I hopped in my truck and drove downtown to see. But, alas, it was nowhere to be found. Returning home, I used my wife’s phone to call my cell several times. No response. Frustrating.

I thought back over the day. Where did I lose it? I began to realize I had probably dropped it as I got out of my vehicle yesterday morning.

Then it occurred to me, “I can log into my iPad and use Find My iPhone.” In less than five minutes I could see that my phone was on and where it was (on a street map). I was able to send a message to the guy who had it. I told him what building he was in (a local library), my first name, and my wife’s cell number. In less than a minute, he called. Yes, he said he found it in our office parking lot. Fifteen minutes later I had my phone.

Awesome.

Now if my phone could just shout at me, “Hey dummy, you dropped me–again!”

By the way, I keep my phone locked. Yesterday, I was glad it was not accessible. Though locked, I was still able to send the message and the fellow who had the cell could read it. Interesting. Good job Apple.

  1. I use Android for both the tablet and the cell, I need to verify but I believe it does not offer that service. Great technology
