My teenage daughter lost her ridiculously expensive new mobile phone in the snow. Yep. That just happened. The panic, the daughter in near tears, the resigned digging through insurance paper work in case we can't find it, what fun ways to spend a Saturday. Of course, in these times of desperate need, there's only one place I could think that might offer some help or guidance; the internet.I found all kinds of lovely tools, apps and gizmos to install on our Android phones before they get lost, but only one that could help if your phone was already missing. Enter plan b.
Plan b let me remotely install to her mobile phone through the Google account the phone was registered to. Once it was installed, it began sending me locating emails, giving us the coordinates of the phone with an accuracy within 10 ft/3m. Once we relied on the exact coordinates, we found the phone within moments. It was amazing. And now I'm my daughters favorite person on the planet. Makes digging through the snow totally worth it.
