“Have you seen my phone?”

In Check This Out on January 19, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Lost phones in the library are nothing new, this happens on a regular basis.  Usually, the phone can be called and tracked down by its owner but occasionally, the phone really is missing/lost/stolen – what to do then?

There are several things users can do to track their phones; those with iPhones can buy apps or use MobileMe to locate the missing device.  The Technically Personal site lists six ways to track a lost phone or users can review the GPS function of their phone (see this article for details).

A missing phone can be a nuisance but apps and tracking software can lead to quick recovery.  The most important step is registering or enabling the software and/or apps so they can do their intended job.
