I'm in a real state today. My iPhone fell out of my jacket pocket last night on a city bus in San Francisco!~
I realized it shortly after we got off the bus and used the "Find my Phone" function on my husband's phone to locate it.
We watched it zip across San Francisco until it finally came to rest AT SOMEONE'S HOME!!!
I locked it, although I wasn't able to erase it. Hopefully having it locked will prevent anybody from getting my info off the phone. For instance, I have access to bank information; I have the ability to buy things on Amazon etc etc.
I also learned that the Apple Care insurance plan I have purchased only covers damaged phones, NOT lost or stolen ones.
Anyway, I'm trying to manage today sans phone but will head over to the Apple store later today and buy a new one. This time, I am going to get the LARGEST one possible so I can't keep it in my pocket. I need to protect myself from myself!!
Anybody else ever lost a phone?? I feel like a complete idiot. And to top it all, I'm completely disoriented. We are so attached to our phones. Well, at least I am!
Hopefully everything will be transferred because of iCloud, because I naturally haven't backed up the phone in AGES...I quickly attached my backup hard drive to my laptop to back IT up!! My pictures?? I hope they're in the iCloud, too. I picked up darling Ryan yesterday from his first day of First Grade and took an adorable picture. GRRRR
Lessons learned today!!!
