Nowadays, we can’t spend a single day without our phones because it has been intertwined with our lives. Losing a phone can be very problematic and troublesome. Here are five simple ways by following which you will be able to locate or replace your lost SafeLink phone.
Call Your Number
At first, you need to calm yourself down and recall where you saw your phone for the last time. Once you remember, start retracing your steps to see if you find your phone along the way. You need to start finding your phone with the very first and basic step, i.e., call your number. If you remember that your phone was not on silent mode, then this trick might work for you if it is somewhere near you. In case it is not near you but in some other public place, then also this trick might work as it is going to alert people around it. If anyone answers the phone, express your gratitude and ask them to meet you in person for giving you the phone back. Now, if your phone is turned off or switched off then this trick won’t work. You will be needing other methods then.
Use Google Android Manager
