You can’t find your phone, and you’re freaking out. You’ve looked everywhere, but it’s as if your phone vanished into thin air. Is it somewhere under your sofa…or did you leave it somewhere while you were out earlier?
While you’re free to continue looking under couch cushions and trying to retrace your path from last night, we’d like to suggest an easier solution. One that will end your search in mere seconds:
Just call your phone!
Fortunately for you, there’s a bevy of online services that will let you call your phone for free. We’ll look at a few of the most efficient services and tell you how to use each one.
There’s a reason we’re listing our service first: it’s one of the best ways to call a lost phone. Our service is absolutely free, compatible with PCs, Macs, and smartphones, and can be used to make calls anywhere in the world.
How can I call my cell phone?
If you’re on a computer, you can call your phone directly through our Call My Phone service. If you’re on a mobile phone, you can download our app (available for iPhone and Android).
Regardless of how you access our service, the steps you follow to make a call are identical:
1. Enter your phone number, including the international code for the country you’re calling (e.g. include a “1” before US numbers, “44” before UK numbers, etc.).
2. Press the call button.
3. Wait for the brief timer to end.
4. Wait for your phone to ring!
Keep in mind that you can only use this service 4 times during a 24-hour period.
Is CallMyPhone safe?
CallMyPhone cares about the safety of its users, which is why we keep your phone number completely confidential. We don’t give it to third parties or use it for promotional purposes, and we’ll never ask for your personal information.
We have a strict policy against using our service for prank calls. In the event that someone reports a prank call made through CallMyPhone, we will report all necessary information to the authorities.
CallMyPhone doesn’t hang onto your information. We’ll delete your phone number and IP address 3 months after you use our service.
Is "Call My Lost Phone" really free?
A lot of “free” services will ask for your credit card information or offer a free trial for a limited time. Unlike them, CallMyPhone is completely free. We’ll never ask for your personal or financial information.
CallMyPhone will never charge you for any call you make. In fact, we pay for any call you make. For this reason, we only allow users to make 4 calls within a 24-hour period. Similarly, there is also a time limit on each call you make (typically 1-2 minutes). (Remember, it’s a free service!) Since we pay for every call made through our services, we greatly appreciate donations from our users.
