Old School Methods
The most basic methods are often the best! The first thing to try is to ring the phone. You may have lost it down the back of your sofa or under the seat of your car. Even if it is outside, maybe whoever picked it up will answer it. If this comes up blank then try offering a reward either by advertising locally or text the phone. Spread the word via your social networks and go back and retrace your steps in case it has been handed into lost property at the police station, gym or library!
Phone Specific Methods
Most smartphones have features enabling you to track where they are. With the iPhone you can use the 'Find My iPhone' features by logging into your iCloud account, while Blackberry users can use a third party app called Berry Locator. If you have a Windows Phone then you can use 'Microsoft My Phone' to pinpoint the last known location based on when the phone performed a data sync. Failing this your cell phone network may have the ability to track the phone if you get in touch with them.
Use Cell Phone Spy Software
If you have mobile spy app on the phone then you can use the GPS location tracking tool to find where your phone is. This type of software has many uses over and above call recording or text messages monitoring and is well worth adding to your phone as a precaution in case you ever do lose your phone.
