Re: How to find a lost phone that is switched off?

A long shot but I remember some of my phones, even when they are swiched off the morning alarm will still sound.

So if you had an alarm set it may still go off at that time.

Re: How to find a lost phone that is switched off?

If you have got Lookout Mobile Security app on your phone you can make it SCREAM even if it is switched off. Or locate its exact position from your computer or another phone. If you haven't got this app perhaps you should think about getting it when you find your phone. Good luck.

If the phone is switched off, this app will not work... No phones that I am aware of will support remote switchon. Sorry :smileysad:

 

If someone has answered your question satisfactorily, please accept it as a solution :smileyhappy:
Don't forget to give kudos to those who you think deserve it, not because they're asking for it!

Before replying to a negative post, please have a read of this post by darrenpainter - it makes a lot of sense
