After I got home from work today I played with Baxter, made a sandwich, watched a little news, and began to do some homework. Before settling into a project, I decided to make a call. That’s when that sick feeling hit me. I looked all around the house and could not find my phone.
Then, I remembered the Find My iPhone APP that I had downloaded. I opened up my Mac and went to icloud. Sure enough, the phone showed up with a green pin on google maps. (As you can see in the picture, the map showed my iPhone in the parking lot at work).
I hopped in the van and headed straight back to town to look all over the parking lot and the surrounding area. I enabled the loud alert ping to help me find it. A co-worker and his sons stopped to help me search for the phone. We looked all over, and found “nothin”. After a while – I gave up.
Before leaving the campus, I decided to run back into my office – and there was my iPhone on my desk. Thank you, Lord!
I should have read Paul Hughes’ review on CNET Download.com. Then, I would have known that the locator gives an “approximate” location of the iphone. I should have started my search in the office rather than at the green pin in the parking lot.
All in all – the App is helpful. It got me in the general area. And, I’ll sleep well tonight knowing my phone is not lost.
Have you ever been on a search for your phone? How did it make you feel?
