Way too many beers in the sun yesterday and suddenly my phone is MIA. I can call it and it rings so there is still power in it. Does anyone know how to track a phone to find where it is? It is an HTC EVO. I actually went 11 months without losing a phone so this has been a good run.
OT - how to find a lost android phone
Do you have Lookout installed?
No I don't. Sounds like I need it if/when I buy a new phone today.
either way it will be the last place you look...
It's Sunday morning but it's Game Week, so I'll go 1pm.
EDIT: It's after 1pm, my time, Mods must be sleeping.
to just use "Find My iphone" would be snarky, so I flat out refuse to do it.
i is not so much snarky as it is wrong... he is looking for an android phone.
Is this serious?
My wife and I can see each other in Google maps using Latitude. I don't know if you will be able to find it if you haven't already configured it though.
The clock is ticking...good luck.
That sounds terrible. Are you nuts?
My wife and I can see each other on Latitude too. It is a helpful tool if you have a good relationship with your spouse. Neither of us have anything to hide from one another and it is sometimes handy to see where she is if we're traveling or planning on meeting up after work - I can see if she's 5 minutes away or half an hour away.
Should of downloaded 'wheres my droid' app it works wonders.
call your service provider and ask them to help you.
If someone who finds it can view texts without unlocking the phone, perhaps text it and say "If found, please call XXXX - reward offered" ($50?)
Here you go man: you can download Lookout Plan B to your phone AFTER you've already lost it:
Thanks everybody for all the help. My wife just got a call from the guy that found it...I think in my budlight haze I left it on the back of her bumper and she drove off depositing it many miles away. Appreciate all the help and when I pick it up and exchange it for a new one since the screen is now cracked, I will be downloading the apps you guys recommended.
It's in your pocket of the pants you wore yesterday.
You should have downloaded the "Where's My Droid? app!"
you can track it on sprints website. accurate as hell too.
The sprint website has been down all night and day unfortunately.
Plan B for Android ... haven't had to try it, but give it a shot and let me know how it works.
Plan B worked good. It was tracking the guy that had my phone within 2000 meters.
