UPDATE!!!!!!

so i've been despondantly calling my phone ever since last night, and every time has been the same: goes to voicemail. my phone wasn't off when i lost it, and it had loads of batteries, so i took this as a very bad sign that someone had already found it, taken out the sim chip, and was living happily ever after with a new razr.

i was trying not to give up entirely until i had a chance to call the bar when they opened this afternoon, which they just did. so i called. no phone. despair.

i sadly called my number one last time, just in case.

SOMEONE PICKED UP.

the station manager at the vienna metro stop (last stop on the line, the one after where i get off) has my phone. i guess he turned it off all day? not sure why exactly, but I DON'T CARE I'M GETTING MY PHONE BACK THANK YOU HOLY DIVINITY ENTITIES and so sorry to badmouth you, karma.

i am exhausted from being so stressed all day long :-) but i don't care MY PHONE IS SAFE aahhhhhhhhhhhh....

  1. Woo Hoo! Lucky you!

    That happened to me last year, but a guy that only spoke spanish picked it up. It was tough to get back from him, but I did.

  3. I lost my phone a month ago and when I finally got through to it on my roommates phone, the people only spoke Chinese! Obviously. But I still got it back cause it turned out it they were my neighbors.

  4. Losing your phone is such a pain... between trying to figure out if a good soul or a greedy soul picked it up, and not having ANY way of communicating with ...like... everyone you ever knew! What a mess.

    Glad you're getting it back!

  12. Hope and I must be late with out responses. So check your bill and see how many calls to places you have never heard of are on the bill. I have no faith in humanity ...

    Glad you found your phone.

  13. i have about 4 bajillion rollover minutes currently... there is nothing anyone could do in 1 day to up my bill. i thought about cancelling service to my phone immediately when i lost it, but then realized i don't pay for roaming, there are literally not enough minutes in a day to use mine up... so i kept service active in case they called me or ended up picking up ever (which they did, obviously, so it was worth it!)

  14. Phone dependency is a terrible thing. May I suggest an addiction councillor. Or at least you try to wean yourself off on to something less irritating to the rest of society - like heroine.

  15. You know we toyed with the idea of making a phone "inactive" for a small fee of about $50. It was a good solution when we tried to reduce our costs. The caveate was that if it got used, it turned it back on. What's the point. I think they can temporarily make it go into a coma or something so no one can use it. For me it's easier to just get the $5 insurance and get the new phone.

  20. Can you believe I once lost my beeper (neepers were in, so it was a while ago) in NYC and I paged myself and someone rang me back and arranged to meet me and give it to me?

    And yet...I lost my mobile phone in Orlando a few years back and when I rang it someone picked up and when I asked to speak to myself (lol) he said it was his phone.

    Idiot. I cancelled the service immediately. Why would they want a phone? You get them for free off the service provider. The expensive part is the actual service.

    Sorry to hear you are having to go through this :(
