How to get a lost phone back to its owner

Losing a phone can be very frustrating. Especially when you think of the documents and files you may lose. It will be very nice to be able to get your phone back once you lose it. Here are some ways to help get your phone back. As well as helping someone get back their lost phone. Follow the processes here to help save a friend or person.

1 . CALL THE CARRIER

The way to acquire the IMEI (the serial number or ESN works too) of the phone depends on the phone’s make. For the Samsung Galaxy S3, the IMEI number can be found underneath the battery. This isn’t the case on newer phones, unfortunately. Most phones no longer have removable batteries. After jotting down the IMEI, call the cellular service provider: AT&T. Ask customer service to tell the owner that their phone is with you and give your location. This will help the owner retrieve the phone from you.

2 . TRY GOOGLE ASSISTANT OR SIRI

Google Assistant and Siri are voice-activated digital assistants that can respond to voice commands. This can be done even with the lock screen engaged. They are also programmed with call functionality. This means you can tell the assistant to call someone. To make it much easy you can have the call ‘daddy’ or ‘mummy’. If the person has a parent contact saved that way, they can retrieve the phone on their child’s behalf. Even so, they can come along.

3 . THE FINGER-SMUDGE METHOD

The oldest, best-known, method of beating the lock screen pattern is through retracing finger smudges. Holding the phone up to a light will reveal such patterns. You can retrace the lines on the screen to beat the lock pattern. It may take a few tries but if you can see a smudge, you can bypass the lock screen. Due to recent technologies, this might not be advisable. You may end up locking the phone after several tries.
