Have you ever misplaced your phone? I think it’s safe to say we all have at one point. I know I’ve wasted time more than once while scrambling through my room trying to find my iPhone.
Usually I have to try and find another phone to call my own so that I can hear my ringtone. But what about the instances when another phone is not available and you really need to find your iPhone?
A few friends of mine don’t have landline phones in their house anymore. What do you do when there is no other phone around and you don’t have MobileMe’s “Find My iPhone” feature? That’s when “I Can’t Find My Phone,” by Dave Dawson, comes to the rescue…
“I Can’t Find My Phone” is a simple website that allows you to enter in your phone number and have an automated service call your phone for you. There is no signup and no usage fee. You simply enter in your number, and your phone is called instantly. And not to worry, if you’re not in the U.S. you can enter your country code to place a call outside of the U.S.
I am very pleased with the aesthetic cleanliness of the site. The service is super fast and I can see this website saving my butt the next time I lose my iPhone. When you get called by “I Can’t Find My Phone”, you are greeted by nice robot lady that says, “It looks like you have found your phone. Have a nice rest of the day.”
Beyond functionality, I also smell a good opportunity for some prank calls with this service. But I’ll let you decide what you want to use it for. Visit the site and give it a try.
What do you think? Does this website solve a problem you’ve run into before?
