    Mt.Diablo mtb'ers who found my phone...

    I can't believe anyone picked up when I called, I thought it was a lost cause! Thanks so much for picking it up - see you around noon!

    Sweet! Glad to hear that you'll be getting it back. Somewhere between BBQ terrace and where we noticed your pack was open, no doubt?

    That's why you always keep an entry called 'home' or something in the phonebook so people that find your phone have somewhere to call

    I was told that people will also look for #'s with the name ICE (In Case of Emergency). I once found an old lady's phone in downtown WC. Her adult son called and came to pick it up. He gratefully thanked me and also gave me a business card and said, "In case you need a home loan, give me a call!" I saw him to the door and rolled my eyes as I walked away...

    commuting and never recovered it. if you dont alread have it you might consider provider insurance. I just say this so that someone else doesnt have to learn as i did.

    Glad to hear you got it back..

    Good points! I did have "home" in my contact list. It's shocking when someone else answers your phone. It took me a second to realize that my phone was found....
