It’s got all of you important contact information, pictures, appointments and is basically your way to communicate with the world. When a cellphone is lost it’s almost as if the world stops and you go into panic mode. In this HowTo I’ll give a few tips on how to handle this problem while incurring the minimum amount of stress.
The first thing you’re going to do would be obvious. Call your lost cellphone and listen for it to ring. Hopefully it’s not on silent or vibrate. If you don’t have a land line or another cellphone handy to do this you can go to the website http://www.WheresMyCellphone.com . Here you can put in your number and it will call your phone for you.
The next thing you’ll want to do if the first step is unsuccessful is to call Customer Service and suspend your account. This is so that no one else can use it and incur any charges against your account.
Now we need to assess the risks. Did you use it to check email,bank accounts, credit card information? Did you save the passwords to these accounts on your lost cell phone? So as soon as you can’t find your lost cellphone you need to go online and change all your passwords immediately.
Now with your new cellphone in hand. This can be a STEP 1. Back up all your phone numbers on your computer to a file. Newer phones come with a Desktop Utility software that enables you to back up your phones info anytime by plugging it in with the supplied USB cord. DO THIS anytime you make a new change to your cellphone. I still do it kind of old school and write it on a sheet a paper and put it in my drawer and update it occasionally.
Tips & Warnings
*Back up your cellphone ASAP
