New Year’s is the one time of the year where literally anyone can find a reason to go out for a night on the town. Most nightlife veterans are already accustomed to keeping up with their most important belongings — typically your phone these days — but we wouldn’t blame those who are less savvy for slipping up.
People are bound to have their phones out much of the night, what with all the selfie action, live streaming, and other social media distractions to entertain. That’s why cases of lost phones tend to spike on New Year’s. If you have the misfortune of misplacing yours, not all hope is lost.
As we’ve shown you in our guide on how to find a lost or stolen Android phone, finding your phone after a long night doesn’t have to result in an immediate call to your carrier or insurance company for a replacement.
Is it guaranteed to help you find the happy ending that results in retrieving your device? No, not always. A dead battery could doom your search before it even gets started.
If you do lose it, you’ll want to act as soon as possible, because the longer you wait, the less likely you are to find it. Having said all that, hurry your way to the article to see what you can do to locate it, and keep your fingers crossed that it isn’t too late!
