Cell phones are a fairly recent phenomenon. It seems like everyone has one, but what if you lose yours? Here are a few tips:
Put your home landline phone number in your cell phone. A good samaritan can then call you when they find it. We're told that happens all the time.
Cell phone companies warn don't ever put bank numbers with pin codes on your phone. It's one of the things thieves look for.
What about cell phone replacement insurance? The experts say it's a lousy deal. The premiums alone could probably score you a new phone if you're willing to shop around. Obviously if you lose a cell phone, call your carrier immediately to suspend service.
Phones don't do much good in the hands of thieves, so the chances are you just misplaced it.
