Consider those scenarios, like you are sitting in your bed, watching your favorite show on the TV, and somehow you get reminded to make a call. You start searching for your cell phone only to find it later somewhere inside the couch. The second scenario where you just returned from office, and while entering your house, you casually threw your phone on the sofa in the living room. Later you start hunting for it as you don’t have any idea where have you kept it. In this post, we are talking about a service that can help you find your misplaced cell phone by making it ring.
Find your misplaced cell phone by making it ring (the US and Canada only)
While nothing beats, Google’s or Apple’s find my phone feature, but this works instantly from any phone. So when you are feeling helpless in such a scenario, try this service.
- Open Where is my Cell Phone website
- Enter your number, area code
- Choose to ring it now.
The service will make a call to your phone number, and it should start ringing. You can also choose it to ring after a few minutes. If you do that, it is almost like faking an incoming call. You can use that as an excuse to move out of any place you want.
That said, there are a couple of drawbacks here. First, if your smartphone ringer is turned off or set to vibration, then it will be useless. Second, anybody can ring anybody’s phone using this service. There is no way to verify if you are the legit owner of that phone number — Thats where the DND mode comes in. You can register with them to block your phone number if someone is sending you unwanted calls from this site.
I hope this website came in handy to find out your phone, make sure to have the ringer turned on all the time or at least the vibration mode.
