Found an iPhone?



Our phones are so many things to us all at once – cameras, photo albums, music holders, game machines, memory keepers, etc. But they’re also little, we take them most places we go and we also happen to be forgetful beings that suffer from brain farts. Which means sometimes, we lose our phones.




That disaster can turn into a positive experience however if someone finds your phone and is able to get it back to you. Because then you believe in the goodness of humanity and karma and wonderful disney things like that. And you will have an excellent day, and everyone you see will have an excellent day and the world will be a better place! Easy!


So. If you happen to find someone’s iPhone, please do the right thing and try your disney hardest (singing and dancing commentary not necessarily required) to get it back to them!


Remember, they may have Find My iPhone turned on and activated and they may be coming back to the very place the iPhone was lost. If it’s a safe place to be, try to stay there whilst you’re trying to contact them.


If the phone is unlocked, you should see if there is a contact listed under ‘ICE’ ( In Case of Emergency), or try looking for relative’s names such as Mum or Dad. Call them to let them know they have their friend or relative’s phone and where they can collect it from.


You can try looking under recent calls for someone to message or call but make sure that the name you choose is one that has been called often and doesn’t belong to a recent hook up or job interview! Awks.


Alternatively, pull down to swipe in contacts, above the search box, and you’ll see the owner’s phone number. Write it down, then type it into the phone. The owner’s name should appear below the number. Find their name in the Contacts list and then use their alternative contact details to reach them.


If the device is locked and it’s a model about the iPhone 4, try using Siri to call ‘ICE’ from the lock page. You could also try to call ‘Mom/dad’ or ‘my husband/my wife’.


If the battery is dead on the iPhone, you have two choices – you can either take it home and charge it and then try to find the owner, or you can hand it in to the police to do likewise.


And then feel all kinds of unicorn sparkle karma for the rest of the day! Yess. We loves us some unicorn sparkle karma.
