Lost My Phone Again!!!

How many times a week does this happen? 

I don't know. 

Ask my husband and he will say hourly.  :-)  I am terrible about losing mine.  I would probably be better off with a phone that was connected to the wall.  :-) 


I found something that is AMAZINGLY helpful. 

Did you know that you can send a text via email?????


STORY ALERT:  My Saturday morning was a little stressful; I was working on some things with "A" when my phone rang.  "T", of course, thought it was a great time for me to read a book and brought me CORDUROY to read.  I talked to my hubs about some events that were taking place later that day.  Then, distracted, I set the phone down and laid the book on top if it.  :( ...and then continued to work with "A".

By afternoon, it had been gone for a while.   Due to the events of the day, I needed to call my husband immediately.  I started getting stressed, "T" was asleep and I couldn't go any where.  I didn't know what to do.

THEN, I thought, I wonder if you can send a text via email.  I know I have sent messages to an email before, so it should work vice versa.  So I googled it and I found out that you can!!!!

I figured out the correct code and sent a text to my husband. "Please call me and keep calling until I answer. I lost my phone. - J."  I wasn't sure if it was going to work but, within minutes, my phone started ringing and, shortly after, I found it under the book. 

YAY!!!! ...So how do you do it???? 

First, you have to have an email account.  :-)

Then you type the 10-digit phone number in front of the phone carrier's address.  Let me give you an example. Let's say your friend/family member uses AT&T.  Then you would put in their number and their gateway.


Thanks to Digital Trends for the info, as well as the carriers' gateways.  See below for list of each carrier's address.  I was so grateful for this info.  It was a lifesaver.  I hope this helps someone else. For more information on how-to go to Digital Trends. - Rejoicing in the Present
