Always running around looking for your phone? Do you have to search madly for you cell phone when it rings? Here are some tips to help you never lose your cell phone again.
-When you are out, always store your cell phone in the same pocket of your coat, purse or briefcase so that way it will be in the same place each time. It sounds simple but deciding on this designated place and sticking to it will save you time, frustration, panic and maybe even money. No one wants to bother with the expense of replacing your phone not to mention the issues associated with losing your phone’s private information.
-As soon as you get home or at the office, place your phone in a cell phone holder so you will know where to grab it when it rings or when you are on the way out the door.
-Set up your cell phone holder by an outlet which you will always use to charge your phone. The outlet should be visible. Be careful when creating this docking station at home to make sure there is no chance of water reaching your phone. Many homes today have multiple users and the docking area to recharge is scattered around the kitchen. Don’t forget that just a few drops of water can sometimes ruin a phone.
- Keep your phone in a case with a clip, so you can attach it to your pocket or your purse. This often forces you to keep it in the same place every time and you also are more likely to notice if it is not there.
-Have you ever lost your phone under the seat in the car? Keeping your phone on silent or vibrate is often a great idea for meetings and at lunch but this causes real havoc if you are trying to locate it. Remember to return your phone to normal mode a
-Make sure your phone is always well charged. If your phone goes dead you won’t be able to call it. Having an additional charger in the car is a handy way to get the recharging you need and doesn’t leave you stuck without communication on those long road trips.
-Always check for your cell phone when leaving a public area such as a restaurant or public washroom. And speaking of washrooms, many a cell phone as taken an unfortunate dip into the toilet bowl and the results of this voyage are nothing to write home about.
Following these tips will simplify your high-tech life. A little extra thought and planning can save you time later. Now you can actually run out the door without running around looking for your phone first.
