Save $99 on Apple's iPad Air: Now just $500 at Amazon

    I got a facetime call from my 16 year old daughters ipad yesterday. She was having a panic attack.

    She said that she had lost her iphone (5s), someone had stolen it from the Local Supermarket she had visited. Rather than immediately calling the poiice and insurance company, I tried logging into her icloud account.

    I discovered her phone, and "Sounded" it, certainly was not in the house. Map showed it was close to where she lost it.

    I put it to Lost mode and entered my phone number in the messages.

    About a minute later I got call from her phone. It was a young lad who had picked it up, and he was with his father.

    I asked them to go back to the Supermarket and wait outside for my daughter to turn up.

    I then facetimed daughter to go and get it.

    They were there and the phone was returned. Daughter and phone reunited.

    I think it was picked up the the young lad rather than stealing it, and if it was a professional thief they would have turned it off or wrapped it in tin foil.

I told her never set it down anywhere unless she's home and when in public do not do free ads! She now has iPhone do I! It can cause anxiety if u misplaced it or lose cost too much to b careless with it!
