4.00am Singapore time.
I couldn’t sleep. Sigh.
My 16GB black iPhone 4 is lost. It happened some 7 hours ago. My carelessness. Arghh. 😦
I had just finished attending a monthly meeting at a community club. I could have had unknowingly dropped it from my hand at the carpark when a friend offered to drive me home. Due to fact that it was night time, the carpark was quite dimly lit. I was also carrying an organiser book in my hand as well.
Within 40 minutes of discovery of lost phone, I rushed back to the community club office to search for it. With the assistance of a staff member, a phonecall has been made immediately to my mobile telco provider, M1 to suspend the line temporarily for 24 hours, voiding the lost sim card before I obtain a replacement sim card later today.
I shall be using another new smartphone – Sony Xperia L, which I have at home.
I am about to change the mobile phone this coming weekend when the unfortunate incident happened last night unexpectedly. Argh.
I went online almost immediately on an available laptop to use iCloud to “Find my Iphone” yet to my dismay, it is offline. My iPhone was switched on when it lost. I can’t locate it, so I turned on the Lost Mode. I hope the activation lock is also switched on my lost iphone.
To avoid unnecessary trouble, I might decide to “erase iphone” to wipe the internal data contents completely. Nevertheless, I still provided my mobile contact number in the message to be shown on the lost phone.
Finally I did the last thing – made a police report at a 24-hour Neighbourhood Police Centre, providing the lost iphone imei number.
I am glad that I’ve backed-up my contacts, photos and confidential passwords. Hence I do not need to ask my friends and loved ones for their mobile number again. At the very least, I can get abit of “peaceful mind”.
It was bought at an M1 authorised retailer at NorthPoint Shopping Centre some 2 years ago.
I hope to recover my lost iPhone but I am also mentally prepared that it is likely gone for good forever. Bye bye iPhone!
Editor’s Note: Can you believe it? I got my lost iphone back in January 2014. Someone picked it up. And kept it until early January when she contacted me via SMS. It’s a miracle. Unbelievable.
Thank you, Ms Wendy Ng! 🙂
