Good Samaritan:

My phone fell from my backpack and I didn’t quite realized. Its battery was just about to run out, and I didn’t realize it fell until I got home.

I immediately activated Prey and marked it as missing, luckily, the person who found it charged the phone’s battery and turned it on.

I had sent a Message Alert with the app, so when the person turned my phone on, he saw it and contacted me.  once he saw the Message Alert I sent he contacted me.

Got my phone back the morning after, thanks!
