Where’s my cell phone?!: Review

We’ve all lost our cell phones temporarily at one point or another. Whether you left it in the car or in between the sofa mattress, it can be frustrating tearing up the house looking for the damn thing. A website aims to solve that problem, WheresMyCellPhone.com. The premise is simple: enter your cell phone number into the text box and the site will call your phone, hopefully, allowing you to find it. That is, of course, assuming your phone isn’t on vibrate (or silent) and is in the vicinity of your room. The site itself is pretty bare, but functional. The site promises not to “store” your phone numbers, so it should be safe to use/try.

A couple issues. First, I tried the site and entered my phone number, but nothing happened. I’m still waiting for the phone call as I write this. Second, this site is pointless for people with a second line, or for the ‘troopers’ still with a good ‘ole land-line. Finally, this doesn’t prevent an evil-doer from prank calling someone. However, it is still a good idea, especially if you don’t have a friend hanging around to call your phone for you or you no longer have a land-line.

Feel free to give it a shot. If you were able to get it to call you, let me know.

Update: I did get the call after trying again. I don’t know if it was my phone or what, but the site does work.

    Hey Trey,

    Thanks for commenting. Yeah, I did get the phone call after trying a second time.

    For the chronically absent minded person like me this has been a godsend, always ringing within a few seconds. It does ask or suggest a donation (with $2 in parenthesis) through Paypal. It has been such a help to me, using it on average once a week, I donated $10.00 once, but this is strictly voluntary.
