There is nothing worse than losing your cellphone. OK there probably is but it's up there on the list. So inconvenient. I saw that this is the time of the year that there is a huge spike in people losing their cellphones or having them stolen. It goes up by 50% or more. It probably has to do with us being out more and doing more things.
Here are two things you can do to increase your chances of someone getting you your lost phone back.
- First turn on your "find my phone" feature.
- Second because your phone is probably locked, people who find it have no idea how to contact you. If you put a contact number on your lock screen. You will be 3 times more likely to get your phone back. Only about 1 in 4 of us put their contact info on their lock screen. I know I'm not one of the 4. It's on my list of things to do today. How about you?
