i have 'lost' 3 different phones due to my negligence. but in each case, someone found the phone and called 'home' and i was able to get them back. also lost one out of my overall pocket when washing the boat hull in a slip. saw it sink to the bottom, got my landing net, taped on something i had to make it longer and got it out of the salt. into a bag with rice and i was able to get it started long enough to recover all the contact information.
