just wondering if anyone knew how to find a lost iphone. i lost mine awhile ago and since have not been able to find it. i need it badly. :(
That sucks. I have no idea how to track down a lost cell phone. I know AT&T can find them but I highly doubt they will be willing to go out of their way.

Although not guaranteed to locate lost items by any stretch, I have StuffBak labels on everything since I travel frequently on business. Keys, luggage, laptop, cell phone, USB drives, etc. They claim a 75% return rate on lost items and the labels/tags proclaim "REWARD" along with their 800 number, website and owner number (keeps both parties anonymous). Makes it very simple for people to be good samaritans when then find lost items. As my Blackberry is my lifeline and brain when traveling, I literally keep it in my holster or in my hand all the time. stuffbak.com for the website.

Get a metal detector? Get a silicon-sniffing bloodhound? Burn your house down(hey, I've heard iPhones are resilient), then recover it amidst the wreckage? Literally move everything in your house outside? (I've found a lot of stuff when moving.) Hire some migrant workers to find it? Hire some crackheads? (Warning: might require crack for incentive.)

All good suggestions.

Somehow I don't think burning your house down to find your lost phone seems practical. How are you going to explain that to the police? I do like the idea of the silicon-sniffing bloodhound. Dogs can be trained to sniff out anything, so why the heck not.

Try reporting to the police. Maybe it would be your luck and they might be able to track. Like in our country we have CPLC which tracks the lost phones and finds them using the IMEI number.

True but.....all your information is on there and contacts and so forth. The person who finds its can see it all. That would not roll well with me. For that reason I passcode it but I don't use the erase feature. I mean I use facebook on it and that person could control and see everything and so forth.
