I lost my phone in a cab in Vegas on my way from airport to hotel and couldn't remember which cab company I went with. Long story short when I got home I had a message on my home voicemail, cab company was kind enough to ship it to me back here.

Hopefully the cab company will be nice enough to give you a shout once it's located.

update since i was working until now:

did the android device manager which syncs googles account via web browser to its location. Found the location and you could lock it with a message displayed, displayed my friends number and said "call the owner" basically threatened the taxi company.... obviously they wouldnt do anything until we gave them the address and report it to the police, shit got serious after that and found out ASAP. (taxi companies aren't dumb, they can find out who went where at what time)

and bam, driver calls us and brings it back because he was probably threatened of getting fired.

fucker rejected my 20 calls this morning and never calls us (even though we displayed our number on the lock screen via google sync)

and now the phone is resting on my hands

thanks for suggestions guys, i was working all day so i couldnt read it but the problem was already resolved
