my new iPhone screen

Last week I very nearly lost my iPhone. Apparently I dropped it in a parking lot outside a store {I blame my giant belly...couldn't see it in my lap when I got out of the car!}. I didn't realize my phone was missing until I was at my next stop, and went into major panic mode. I called the store I was at previously using a payphone to see if I had left it there and yes, it was there. Oh the relief!! An extremely kind person had found it, and brought it into the store for someone to claim. Thank you, thank you, thank you extremely kind person! 

I really realized that my whole life is on my iPhone - emails, texts, photos, videos, lists. And since there was a photo of my daughter on the lock screen, I also realized that if it ever gets lost again there is no way for anyone to know who I am or how to contact me. So this is my new iPhone lock screen. Fingers crossed I don't lose it again, but just in case another extremely kind person finds it, I'm hoping this little message will help!

brilliant! you can also sign up through iCloud for 'find my phone' and the gps tracks it and shows you on a map. then you can send a message that will flash and beep.

No way! I thought there might be an app for that...I will definitely look into it. Sounds handy! Thanks for the info :)

This is such a cool idea! The same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago (except I don't have a big baby belly to blame it on!!!). Luckily I found mine too, but this is a great idea - and super cute!
