A Phone’s Day Off…

My phone got lost while taking the bus, on my way back home.

I started tracking it as soon as I noticed, using the app’s panel in the website. I noticed that whoever had it was moving a lot around Temuco’s center, but the reports kept coming with the location and several pictures.

Finally, I got a snap of the holder’s face and the exact location to a home, but it was quite late and I preferred to wait until the next morning to go fetch it.

And so we did!

That morning I called, and the person who had found it happily agreed to return it.
