Missing phone?

Whoa, this is genius! You know when you lose your phone, and you have to ask a friend to call it for you? Well, if no one's around to help, you can go to this clever website, enter your number, and it will call your phone for you. Ha, I just tried it; it really works!

Wonderful!!! It's amazing someone didn't think of this sooner. I really want to lose my phone now, just to try it out!

Biffie said...

What happens if you answer it??

Viet said...

nice! you can also try google voice. that's what we use at home and it's been a life saver. i also feel that skype would be useful in this situation but haven't tried it.

Joanna Goddard said...

if you answer it, there's a pause, and then an automated female voice says "it looks like you've found your phone. have a nice rest of the day." :)

Joanna Goddard said...

thanks, viet!!

Great idea! Shame I'm in the UK, though.

House of Milk said...

Such a great idea!

Anna Walker said...

this is what I need!!!!!
I live all by myself in an apartment and my phone is my only phone, so instead of typing on facebook to have someone call my phone, I will remember this instead!

Anna of {Green Gable} said...

This is perfect!! I will try this tonight!

nice! a couple of weeks back, my phone had fallen behind my bed, and i called it using the free phonecall option on gmail, so that's another way to go too. this is awesome though, hahhaa, made just for that purpose:)

Sugar said...

Genius!! I totally need this!

Melissa Blake said...

That's amazing! I'm going to try that next time I can't find my phone! :)

Angie said...

Monica @ BeautyParler said...

I love this! Luckly I rarely loose my phone but will add this site to my faves:)

Giovanna said...

this is awesome! have you used the phone in gmail yet? it's really fantastic. it's free in the u.s. and the international rates are really low. i end up using it all the time to locate my cell phone.

Morgan said...

I was thinking the same thing as Angie :) A good way to prank someone! Can't wait until my husband gets home...

Laughter-Loving Stacy said...

NICE.

ruthy ann said...

CINCHED AT THE WAIST said...

Perfect! Who has land lines now a days?

Joanna Goddard said...

Just tried it out too and one word for it: AMAZING!!

I'm so excited I lose my phone in my apartment all the time so a perfect website.

Thanks from Nicole

monkeyandsquirrel said...

Hahaha... That's awesome! I lose my phone more times in a day then I care to admit :)

Notes from Holly St. said...

awesome!

Tali Schiffer said...

lol, I wanted to try it to, and I entered my cell number and it wrote "ringing the number" but there was no ring... And then I realized this is a service only within the US... :)
Now I just need someone to create it for Israel and we're all good!

J. Rene' said...

That is fantastic, and cute!

What do you think they do with your number afterward?

Jamie Marie Jenkins said...

xoxo, jamie

jenn said...

i can't believe how many times i ask my husband to call me. this is great!

Bekah said...

MLD - exactly what I was wondering. I don't tend to want to type my phone number in to anything on the internet, helpful or not! lol

i love when people create technology just for the good of helping others... and for their pure enjoyment. awesome. thanks for sharing!

Olivia said...

this is brilliant!! especially because my husband and i don't have a home phone land line, just our cells! when he is not there, I am screwed!

Johanna said...

I love this! I discovered it yesterday, funny coincidence :) Bonus that it's designed well!

JWK said...

Much needed!!

Elizabeth said...

I can't decide if that's genius or stalkerish. It does have shades of 'When a Stranger Calls' to it.

Ami said...

Genius! Thanks for sharing.

stephanie said...

this is awesome! and will definitely come in handy since i always misplace my phone when no one is around!

Rebecca said...

I tried it and got such a kick out of it. Good "old fashion" fun - thanks Joanna!

Em-Jae said...

Oh em gee -- I SOOO needed this at least four times this week! Yes, FOUR. Apparently I've been too busy to bother with keeping track of my things.

I'm book marking this bad boy, for sure!

Leah said...

how fun!

missmehoneybee said...

so cool!

A bit of advice...don't let Toby play with your cell phone. I made that mistake. I gave in and let our Grayson hold it when I was changing diapers or to say hi to Daddy and now hes obsessed with it. Everytime Im on the phone now, he wants to hold it, and will snake it right out of my hand!

amanda@seegirlcook said...

hahah! so freaking genius. thanks for sharing this!

Nicole Provansal said...

I would definitely be using this everyday! If only they could find a way to call me keys! I lose those a lot too.... :)

krisel keeper said...

So ingenious! (though I've tried calling my French mobile and it doesn't seem to function. Bummer!)

kaitlin said...

Google Voice does the same trick. but this website is definitely prettier!

mkendall said...

Kim {Paper Lovely} said...

Rachel Gray said...

Hahaha! I just tried it! This is a life saver. :))

Is this a free service???

Elizabeth Fay said...

BRILLIANT!

Courtney said...

Can I just say that I have come back searching for this post TWICE when I have lost my phone? Thank you! (one of those times, my phone ended up being in my husband's pocket. and he was at work. that was a weird, inconvenient day.)

I've seen this...and it's great...but one late night we had too much fun with this, plugging in friend's phone numbers and confusing the heck out of them...not to give anyone any ideas...

This will not work as a matter of fact, that's what I consider.
