How To Find Your Lost Cell Phone With Free Programs Online

lost-cell-phone-by-cogdogblog.jpg If you’ve lost your cell phone (or more likely, just temporarily misplaced it), you can enter your cell phone number at Where’s My Cell Phone and your phone will ring right away.

Then, all you have to do is listen for the ring, and see where that ring is coming from!

Of course you could also call your cell phone number from a land line or a friend’s cell phone.

But if neither of those options is available to you, then this free service would come in really handy!

I heard about this cool free service from Kim Komando’s Cool Tip of the Day.

Kim says:

The site [wheresmycellphone.com] does not share or store your phone number. But you can block your number if you wish. If someone else accidentally enters your number, your phone won’t ring.

For the record, Google Maps’ click-to-call is another way to call your own cell phone.

You can also use Google Voice to call your own cell phone.

 

For Truly Lost Cell Phones…

If you don’t hear the ring and you’ve really lost your cell phone, then the following tips for finding lost cell phones will come in handy:

Also, you will want to notify your wireless provider that your phone has been lost or stolen.

The reason? You are responsible for all charges up until the time that it was reported lost or stolen! Once you report that your cell phone has been lost or stolen, your provider will then shut off your device so that no one can make calls or send messages from it.
