Find Your Missing Cellphone By Dialing It Online
By on August 2nd, 2009

[US/Canada only] Have you ever come across a situation where you have kept your cellphone somewhere but cannot find it no matter how high and dry you search for it?

Well you are not the only one who has been in such a situation and your truly too has been through it, however finding a cellphone is easy when you can ring it using another phone, but what if you don’t have any other phone handy, will you waste more time searching for it?

We came across a really handy service called Where’s my Cell Phone that will let you dial your phone from the internet and make it ring.

I tested the service out and it works as advertised, it dialed my phone after a mere two seconds of entering in the website, however it also left a voicemail which was a funny Goodbye, Goodbye.

Definitely useful and worthwhile to use, saves you a lot of time and efforts in locating a misplaced cellphone.

Note: This service will help you find your cellphone if it is nearby, stolen cell phones cannot be recovered using this service. Thanks Manav.

    Great service.

    but, it would be great if it can show where your phone is right now by checking the Cell’s Grid information.

      @Nihar I agree, however it is definitely useful when you leave your phone someplace around the house, like may under some books or clothes and have difficulty in finding it

    I don’t mean to be negative and maybe I am missing something. Why not use your house phone or other phone to dial your cell phone and find it? Is there a special feature I don’t know about?

      @Jusceliono you are right, but I did mention this in the post

      “however finding a cellphone is easy when you can ring it using another phone, but what if you don’t have any other phone handy, will you waste more time searching for it?”

      which is where I recommended using the service when you do not have any other phone handy.

    Keith – I apologize. I simply skimmed through the article and obviously missed that part.
