We all know that feeling too well – it's gone. Your precious, overused phone is GONE! Now no one will know where you are, you have no Google maps to find out where to go and your life as you know it is over. Here's the emotional cycle of losing your phone:
You’ve patted down your pockets and realised you don’t feel your phone – it's not there!
You slowly empty the contents of your pockets and bag, hoping it's secretly hidden in there…
You’re convinced you’ve been robbed. It’s better than facing the fact that you were stupid enough to lose it! Now everyone becomes a suspect.
You run desperately back to the last place you had it and hope that it’s still there.
When your phone is not where you thought you left it!
When you think of how you’ve also lost all your messages/pictures/phone numbers.
7. Increased hysteria
You’re starting to feel like you’re on an episode of Without A Trace.
As you continuously call the phone hoping someone will answer.
As you ask anyone within a ten mile radius have they seen your phone.
You try your best to turn into a detective and log onto 'Find my iPhone', full of hope and determination, before you realise it’s crap and does not work unless your lost phone is connected to WiFi…
So this can eventually end one of two ways:
As, thankfully, someone belonging to the rare kind of humanity found it and handed it in somewhere, and you promise to love and care for your phone like never before and never let it out of your sight again.
As the reality sets in and you have to come to terms with the fact you’re not getting your phone back, and even worse, someone else got a free phone from your stupidity. So you are forced to go home and use an old Nokia from the stone age and hope Santa is generous this year.
