Losing you cell phone is a big problem, especially if the ringer is set to silent or vibrate because you can’t call the phone and listen for its location. I propose that cell phone companies offer a service that an individual can call to change the ringer volume on your phone so it can be easily found. The service would have to be password protected to avoid others from changing the volume as a prank. Cell phone companies could also charge a small fee for this service since it is so expensive to replace a lost phone.

       When triggered, the cellphone could expend its entire charge in one mighty ring. A ring to be heard the world round!

       I like it. Doesn't seem very likely to come to market, but I have that problem all the time.   

       Bun.
