Text Your Lost Phone

I recently wrote a post about using the Find My iPhone app to locate and recover my wife’s missing iPhone.

The experience got me thinking…

What can you do if you don’t have an iPhone or other smartphone with location based tracking (GPS, Wifi)?

Well, if your phone supports text messaging, you can simply send your phone a text message with a note to whoever finds it. Give them a phone number you can be reached at and you may be pleasantly surprised with a returned call!

Don’t forget that you can also try the time honored approach of calling your lost phone from another phone. Someone might actually pick up on the other end!
