    My mobile phone is lost somewhere in my living room and I can't find it! I can dial it and hear it ringing, but everytime I get close, it sounds like it's coming from behind me, i turn round quickly, and it then stops.

    I left it on the top of the radiator, I think, and the combination of heat and radio wave radiation sent it into a different dimension...

    If it's on top of the radiator, why don't you search the tops of all the radiators in the room? And behind them? There can't be that many!

    I once dropped a phone in a patch of shrubbery - switched on. Although I could hear the damn' thing ringing, it was actually quite difficult to home in on the direction of the ringtone. Maybe it depends on the type of ringtone.

    Now: the real puzzle is: find your phone when it's switched off...

    Find the phone in the shrubs, thats easy. Wait till its dark and ring it, the lights come on and you can see it. :biggrin:
    Abitrary, ring it when its dark, and see if you can see lights. If you cant then start toucing objects in the room to see if you can feel vibrations.
    If that doesnt work, then just simply take the room appart and you will find it.

    So long as it's not a Leprechaun, he should be easy to see in your living room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I got it back. Someone in a different dimension did indeed answer the phone, stuck it on their radiator, banged it up to 5, and it sent it back to me.

    I was actually quite enjoying being without it TBH, and that is why I left it to my weekend task to find it. It's just headhunters bothering me all day on that number otherwise

    Anyhow, the main thing is that this problem only took half a day to resolve.... because I only buy bright coloured mobiles these days for that reason.

    Anybody who buys black ones must either be very organised, or very good at finding stuff.
