    Lost the damn thing inside my house lol. Been gone for 2-3 days now. Got everyone to look for it...hopefully it will turn up. Thankfully i had a warranty and the new iphone is coming out, so hopefully best buy will just give me another 4 because of those two things. Plus my iphone was dead, so no find my iphone.

    but, any suggestions on how to go about this? wait for my iphone to appear? wait for 4s to come out so they may give me another 4? very annoyed at how this all went down. :mad: /rant /last hope thread

    Ummm, why don't you just keep looking for it. And when you're done, I'd suggest cleaning your house so you can better find things.

    You really want suggestions from the Internet on the best way to look for something in your house?

    Talk to it, "where are you" maybe voice assistant will answer back.

    I would look around for it.



    It's usually in the last place you look.

    I certainly hope so!

    To all the people who said to call it/find my iPhone, did you read the post?

    I don't know if this helps, but when I lose things, when I'm lying in bed I try to think really hard and retrace my steps leading up until I lost whatever it is I lost. Sometimes I think of it then and there, but sometimes I have an epiphany in the morning or sometime later during the next day (mid-afternoon).

    Hope you find your phone!

    On the bright side, a wider iPhone 5 with a 4" screen will be harder to misplace. :)

    Look in the fridge, or call it/text it and listen intently.

    Call the phone. The radiation will probably lead you to it, even though it is off.

    Get a drug seeking dog. Wait, I'm not the only one that does lines off the back of my iPhone 4, right?

    How drunk were you when you lost it?

    Nope. Now that I think about it, maybe I don't want an iPhone redesign. How will I get my fix?!

    It slipped down between the headboard and the top of your mattress and is stuck there between the mattress and the box springs.
