How can I prevent my self from losing my cell phone all the time?

I lose it A LOT

Report as

Try setting an alarm clock on it for a certain time of the day, so if you do lose it you can wait for that time to come and hear it ring :D

You need to concentrate more... it's so easy to just mindlessly put something down ( I know, I do it all the time too) without making a mental note of where you put it. At home, have one or two designated spots where you keep it. When you get done using it, put it where it belongs. When you are out and about, keep it in a pocket, purse or a holster unless you are using it.

Green. I lose it 2-3 times a day... Even with sparkly bling-out, can't miss it case.

I have an HTC Inspire... as big as my hand, but a grayed chocolate color that seems to blend in with everything.... drives me nuts. But then again, even when my phones were fire-engine red, I lost them all the time. I've threatened to duct-tape a bicycle flag to it!

Stop taking it out of your pocket. Maybe see if you can find one of the old school suitcase cell phones. Nobody EVER lost those

Keep it in a DEEP pocket or zip-up purse. Things surely won't fall out of these types of things...

Pay attention to what you are doing. Assuming there is nothing wrong with you, it's just a matter of getting in the habit of being more aware of your stuff and your surroundings. Start getting in the habit of checking to be sure your phone (keys, wallet etc.) are with you before you go to another location. It's just practice. You can do it.

I made me several small pouches 6" long,3 inches wide, lined, flap that has 3 large snaps to keep the phone inside the pouch, with about a 26" long FLAT rope that goes around my neck. The pouch is large enough I can CARRY some bills, a couple quarters, drivers license, 1 credit card inside. I wear one ALL THE TIME, except when I shower or sleep-to recharge the battery. I made 4 so I can just throw them in with my clothes washing. I am on a walker so I do not carry a purse anymore, I don't need one with the pouch. Wear it inside my blouse/shirt, no one sees it.

Don't be so judgemental of other people. I'm sure you are not perfect. Would you want someone to call you stupid when you ask a question?

On my phone i use the app "find my iphone" (works for ipods and ipads too) It lets you send sounds to find your phone if its close and if its far you can track it by satelite. This app saved my butt a few times.

I use to do this a lot also.
I put a string through the "charm holder" and wore it around as a necklace.
Never lost it again.

Put a snap ring on your purse or belt with a corded elastic line on it and attach it to your cell phone using a double sided foam tape and a plastic ring mounting it on the tape on the Back side.you can get these rings at any ace Hard ware store

Call your cellphone from another phone. If it's nearby you will hear it. If not, someone may pick it up and answer and tell you where it is

This happens to me all the time. Before I leave a place I check for three things ( Phone , Wallet , Keys ) by literally saying them out loud before I leave. If that does not work you can down load a software on IOS or Android if you have a smart phone that will allow you to track your phone by going online. They also have software that you can add that will allow you to send your phone an emergency text that will make your phone respond on the loudest setting even if you have disabled sound. I hope this helps.

I always lose things, but when you comes to losing something as serious as your wallet or cell phone or ipod, you have yo force urself to check pockets or backpack to be sure its there like every few times a day. Especially when youre out. Keep it somewhere where you ABSOLUTELY know it cant get lost, like your

- down in your tall boots
- in a DEEP pants pocket or cargo pants w/ a zip close
- in your back pocket so you always feel it there, when you sit down
- in a small pocket in your backbag
