How to Call my Lost Phone

10 Min Read

Is your phone missing? You’ve looked everywhere, can’t find your phone, and you’re freaking out. You might continue to look for it, however we’d suggest an easier solution for you. One that will end your search in mere seconds: Just call your phone!

There are online services that will let you call your phone for free or at a rate. Let’s check some efficient services and how to use them.

How to Find Your Phone With Google Assistant

With an active Google account, you can find your Android or iOS phone at your own convinience. For detailed instructions, refer to the official Google page.

If you have an Android phone, it must be:

  • Turned on
  • Connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi
  • Signed in to your Google account
  • Visible on Google Play
  • Location must be turned on
  • “Find My Device” must be turned on (this is turned on by default after you sign in to a Google Account)

If you have an iPhone or iPad, it must be:

  • Connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi
  • The phone number must be added to your Google account
  • You can add your number by going to > Phone > Add Recovery Phone > and following the steps.

If more than one person is using the same Google Home device, everyone who wants to call their own phone needs to link their Google Account and voice to Google Home. This includes the person who set up Google Home.

Call Your Phone With Google Voice

Google Voice is another service that will let you call your phone. The process is somewhat less complicated in comparison to Google Assistant. You can use your computer, Android phone, iPhone or iPad to call your phone with Google Voice.

A detailed list of these steps can be found at the official Google site.

If you’re on your computer:

  • Open Google Voice.
  • Open the “Calls” tab.
  • At the top of the screen, click “Make a Call.”
  • Enter the name or phone number corresponding to your phone.
  • At the bottom of the screen, click “Call.”
  • Choose how you will make your call (we recommend Hangouts)
  • Linked number: This option will connect the call to the number you’ve linked to Google Voice. If you’re trying to call your own phone, and that’s the number you’ve linked to Google Voice, this probably isn’t the best option!
  • Hangouts: Instead of using a phone, this option will use your computer’s internet connection to make the call. We recommend choosing this option.

Steps for Android:

  • Open the Google Voice app.
  • At the bottom of the screen, tap “Calls.”
  • Tap the contact you wish to call (i.e. your phone).
  • Or tap “Dial” and input your number directly if it isn’t stored as a contact.

Steps for iPhone:

  • Open the Google Voice app. At the bottom of the screen, tap “Calls.”
  • Tap the “Add” button (“+”) > “Make a call.”
  • Enter the name or number of the contact you wish to call (i.e. your phone).
  • Or tap “Dial” and input your number directly if it isn’t stored as a contact.
  • If this is an international call, enter the country code before dialing the number.

Find Your Samsung Phone

If you have a Samsung phone, you can use Samsung’s built-in Find My Mobile service to locate your device. In addition to letting you remotely locating your phone, this service also lets you:

  • Back up data stored on your phone to Samsung Cloud
  • Lock your phone’s screen
  • Block access to Samsung Pay
  • Delete all data stored on your device

As you can see, “Find My Mobile” is an invaluable resource for any Samsung user worried that someone could access their missing phone. Note that this service only works if your phone is signed in to your Samsung account.

Find Your Apple iPhone/iPad Device

Like Samsung, Apple has also rolled out a comprehensive “Find My Phone” feature. Find My Phone is compatible with any modern Apple device, including AirPods.

Apple’s Find My Phone feature lets you view the location of any Apple device, and it also lets you play a sound to track down a device that’s within earshot. You can also lock your device or erase its data remotely.

There’s also a feature called “Lost Mode,” which is available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch. Activating Lost Mode will immediately lock your device and start tracking it. It can also display a message with a contact number on your device’s lock screen. If someone’s picked up your lost phone while you were out, this is a great way to get them to contact you.

How to Use Apple’s “Find My Phone” Service

First off, make sure Find My Phone is activated on your iOS device! Like Samsung’s Find My Phone, this feature is useless if left inactivated on the device you wish to locate.

To activate Find My Phone, access the Find My Phone app directly from your phone’s main screen.

From an iOS device, open the Find My Phone App. If you’re on a computer, access the feature through Log in with your iCloud credentials, and you’re in! From here you can track your phone or activate any of the features mentioned above.
