I have either lost or had my phone stolen. I am hoping it is at work but in the meantime I have locked the phone and disabled the SIM by phoning the
company I use as a mobile phone company. No calls have been made which is reassuring but it is still a concern that I have become so dependent upon a
I am insured for loss and damage so its not as bad as it could be and the chap was very reassuring but it's still upsetting and I'd rather it hadn't happened.
But it will feel so good when you get it back!
Yes, there are many, and varied 'tracking" apps none of which I'd be happy to turn on. Not that I have anything to hide....but......
Friends who love bits of fruit have some sort of tracking app that can tell you where their friends are at any given point in time. I know that there's a "Find my phone" app for 'roids which, I think, is tied to google.
All the best looking for it Mary. Last time I lost a phone, I did manage to find it, but it weren't much good when I did. It was in the middle of the road and had been run over.
Yes. Some kind soul had locked the door to my office to keep it safe when they heard it ringing when I tried to phone it last night.
This is why I have a cheap, burner phone on a $45 a month unlimited calling, texting and 10GB of data plan.
Although I've had to use my camera phone a few times lately to transmit photos to the office on breaking news close to our deadline, so I may upgrade to a better burner phone in the near future.
A recent example, sent from the scene 20 minutes before the paper went to press.
Are we looking at a picture of the whole page or the picture of the bloke making a speech?
You say a cheap burner phone. I take it its not an Apple. But Samsung is hardly a burner. Is it a Nokia?
For (news)print, a "relatively" cheap (read: lo-res) camera would probably do.
Ruby glued a phone locator device onto my phone. Her smart phone can use it to help locate the phone, and can play music by means of a chip in the
locator so that I can hear it if I am close enough.
One problem I'd formerly had in locating the phone was that it might be turned off, either deliberately or because of battery exhaustion, or it might have gone to vibrate (which sometimes seems to happen accidentally).
I've noticed that. The accidental vibrate only thing. Or the ringing is just turned off.
Glad you found your phone
I have an app which can erase everything if stolen, tell me its location, ring loudly etc
I'd assume the thief will disable that before I even realise it's stolen
