Submission + - How to find your lost cellphone? 1

adosch writes: By pure human stupidity, I accidentally left my phone on a table in a well-known restaurant in a bigger airport. Within 10 minutes of it being out of my possession, and minutes before my flight was going to take off without me, I was granted permission by the plane personnel to go back to look for my phone quickly since the restaurant was right by our gate. My table was quickly occupied by another person, so I asked them along with the the waitress, bus boy and manager if anyone had picked up the phone or saw one. All the answers were no.

Now that I have landed at home, I have called my phone several times and it will ring fully until it hits my voice mail. What is surprising, is my phone dialed back the phone I was calling from but no one would saying anything. My question to the community is, since I'm operating in such a short window of opportunity, what is the best way to try and get my phone back or track it down? It's an LG Env Touch. I'm a technical savvy guy, but never power-used my phone other than calling or text messaging.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
