Losing your phone: one of the most terrifying things that can happen to a person in our modern era. On Twitter, users are sounding off at what the earth-shaking experience was like. Please read only if you're prepared for a roller coaster of emotions.
Even when your phone isn't truly lost, it can feel lost.
Elon Musk’s a little younger than I am. He’s a billionaire revolutionising the human experience. I just looked for my phone using the flashlight on my phone.— Damien Owens (@OwensDamien) February 6, 2018
Was trying to find my phone using the flashlight on my phone. Gonna be that kinda day.— Cowboys pick 19th (@DraftCowboys) February 7, 2018
There's no better feeling than tracking your device down like a pro:
i lose my phone and i say “alexa find my phone” and it rings my phone. i feel like iron man with jarvis now— jay patel (@jaydp00) February 8, 2018
But sometimes that's easier said than done.
Phones will often re-appear in the most unexpected places...

Some phone owners are brilliant sleuths, others are....not.

I've lost my phone contacts again. No I didn't back them up. Again. Why do I do this?— Zarrar Khuhro (@ZarrarKhuhro) January 30, 2018
In the end, however, perhaps losing your phone isn't as important as how you lost it.
So, pretty sure I lost my phone last night, but all in all still one of the best nights of my life— Jim Saksa (@saksappeal) February 5, 2018
