Lost and Found Service for Cell Phones – FREE

So you just got a new phone for Christmas and are checking out all the cool features. Stop for a moment and ask yourself this; if you lost your phone at Starbucks or the grocery store, would a person who found it be able to contact you?

It seems simple to recover a lost cell phone but what if it is not charged or you do not have the GPS locator enabled?

Of course, there’s always the “insurance” policy, but that usually comes with a HUGE deductible, like $200.

Why not try a FREE way to protect your phone like FOUNDio? It is a free lost and found service for cell phones, laptops, tablets, books, heck…anything!

You simply create a Tag ID at Foundio.com and write that on your phone (or get a pre-printed sticker if you know a FOUNDio team member). Then, if someone finds your phone, they use THEIR PHONE’s browser to open FOUNDio.com. They click on “Notify Owner”, fill out some details about where your phone is (or how you can contact them), and submit it. FOUNDio will email you those details to your (or your parent’s) web email address. You get your phone back in no time.

So before you load up too many priceless pictures and conversations, take 1 minute and Tag your phone with FOUNDio.

Like Free Phone Loss Insurance

Anyone who has lost a cell phone will tell you…it stinks. What’s worse is that most cell phone insurance services charge you a huge deductible. So what’s the point?

Using FOUNDio is like having free phone loss insurance. You create a Tag ID for free at foundio.com using your email address and then tag your phone using a printed label or even masking tape. If you lose your phone and a good Samaritan finds it, chances are that they will use THEIR phone to notify you by visiting Foundio.com and enter your Tag ID. They can even give you instructions on how/where to get your phone back…all without giving up their personal information.

Even though FOUNDio is like free phone loss insurance, it is only an additional layer of protection for those times when you simply misplace your phone. Online recovery services like FindMe, etc., only work if the phone has power and is turned on. What’s more, if you lose your phone and it is on “silent” it may be hard to find it yourself.

Do yourself a favor this year; sign up your whole family and tag all their phones with FOUNDio. It’s like free phone loss insurance.
