December 17, 2012Never Lose Touch with Phone.com
By Robbie Pleasant, TMCnet Contributor
Do you know where your phone is? You probably do, since they’ve become essential for both business and everyday life. So what happens if you lose it? It’s not inevitable, but always a possibility. If you do lose your phone, that’s not just an expensive piece of equipment, you’re also losing contacts, calendars, data, pictures, and more.
If you’re concerned about losing your phone, there are solutions. Find iPhone (News - Alert) and apps from LookOut Mobile Security are good options for remotely locking, or even clearing, one’s lost smartphones. Another option is having a Phone.com account, which will help you make and receive phone calls while your phone is lost.
If you’re signed up with Phone (News - Alert).com, you can have your calls forwarded to any other phone, ensuring you won’t miss a call even when your phone is gone. Your data will also be safe from thieves, so you won’t have to worry about someone finding your travel schedule, work notes, and any company information that you don’t want to lose.
If all goes well, then losing your phone is a problem you’ll never have to worry about. Still, the phrase “better safe than sorry” comes into play here; we’d all much rather not lose our phones, but it’s best to have a backup in case you ever do.
You have options. Phone.com is a great way to protect your phone, since it lets you keep making and receiving calls even after it’s lost. PlanB, LookOut (News - Alert), Find iPhone, and other such apps are also good emergency apps for locking and wiping them, should it be necessary. It’s better to have your personal data in no one’s hands than a stranger’s, but it would be best to have it safe and secure in your own.
