How to Not Lose Your Phone on a Night out
The lost phone: one of the very many possible negative outcomes of a night out clubbing. We all think it won’t happen to us… until it does. So what are the steps you can take to stop yourself from losing your phone on a big night out? Of course, you could just stay in, and sometimes the UK weather makes that an appealing option, but what if you’re adamant you’re going to head out into the night? Here’s Asda Mobile’s survival guide.
A unique case Step number one should be making your phone stick out as much as possible so that if you do accidentally put it down on the bar, or on a table where a few other phones have been placed, at least you’ll know which is yours. Find a flashy case or one that is bright coloured and easy to recognise. Quick: grab it before it disappears.
Zip up Of course, if you really want to keep your phone hidden, you’ll keep it tucked away. But what if you don’t carry a bag, or you’ve put your bag into the cloak room? Zips, friends, are your best bet. Make sure you’ve brought a jacket out with you, or that at the very least you’re wearing trousers or a skirt that have some form of zipped pocket! As Gandalf says, Keep it secret. Keep it safe.
Buy a big-night-out phone We all know that all phones aren’t born equal. So if you want to protect your investment, make sure you have a backup phone that you use for big nights out, holidays, festivals etc. where the risk of losing your phone is higher than usual. At Asda Mobile, we have a whole range of SIM-only bundles that are perfect for people with hectic, messy social lives and who might want to invest in a phone for such occasions.
Find my iPhone If your iPhone does go walkies, it’s not the end of the world. You still have a chance to get yours back thanks to great apps like Find My iPhone. Thanks to iCloud, you can trace your phone, block other users from getting access and even delete your profile remotely. Pretty cool.
Bluetooth finder tags If you want to get serious, you can actually invest in a set of small Bluetooth trackers and attach one to your phone. They’re really cheap and help you track your possessions to pinpoint accuracy.
