Losing My Mind and My iPhone

I think I'm losing my mind slowly.

Or, at least, I'm losing my stuff lately.

In less than a week, I have lost an iPad and an iPhone in plain sight.

If it weren't for this app, I may still be looking for them.

Do you have two "i" devices? If so, I highly recommend downloading the Find My iPhone app on them.

I don't care if they can use it to track my every move. It's not like I lead that exciting of a life.

"Look she went to Starbucks...where is she heading now? CVS. The grocery store. This chick is wild and crazy."

It has saved my sanity on more than one occasion, including a harrowing 6 hours in Charleston when my iPhone decided to tour the city in the back of a airport shuttle van.

Back to losing my stuff in plain sight. This morning I set my phone down and 2 minutes later I couldn't find it.

I searched upstairs. I searched downstairs. I searched the car.


I grabbed my iPad and sent an alert to my phone and waited.

Then my iPhone rang and lit up 5 inches from where my iPad was sitting. In my defense, it was partially hidden by a plastic bag.


Note: I received no compensation from the makers of this app. It's just saved my bacon a time or two.


  1. I need a find my car keys app. Lol. Remember that most times we lose things in plain sight. Have a great weekend.

  2. You can do it online from any computer @, too! I use it ALL the time - and I think ALL phones should have this feature. Since my phone is NOT an iphone and I don't have a house line anyymore, I usually message Craig's phone from my iPad to call my phone to help me find it as I head out the door. I think it makes him crazy - but that's my job, right?

  3. I lost my iPhone last week and nearly had a nervous breakdown. Although I have Find My iPhone installed, I didn't realize (very important) that you've got to have location services turned on. I didn't, because my battery was so old that the charge didn't last all day, so I'd disabled location services to preserve battery life.

    That little move cost me $499 to replace my iPhone. First thing I did on the new one? Installed this app. Then I activated location services and will never, ever disable them again.
