Default Find My Phone Service Proves Useful

"In this case the return of a beloved set of golf clubs - oh and a beloved mobile phone - were all achieved via the Find My Phone standard feature of Windows Phone 7."

Windows Phone 7 has a handy feature that allows you to track the whereabouts of your phone should you ever lose it. It uses a combination of Windows Live and capability built into the phone to allow you to:

  • make your phone ring
  • map your phone's location
  • lock your phone and show a message
  • erase your phone

Our Read link takes you to a story of how the service was used to recover a set of golf clubs that were stolen from a club house. Hopefully you will never have need for this service, but if you ever do it may prove invaluable in either protecting your privacy and/or recovering what is for most people an absolute indispensable asset.
