- Get your #baseball cap on! MLB Extra Innings is on free preview until May 5th. ^eo
You know the feeling. That moment of panic when you realize you can’t find your phone. Where did I last have it? What if someone took it? Whether it is at a restaurant, in a cab or at home, I seem to forget my phone on a weekly basis. And I’m not alone in this either. Our research indicates that 31% of Rogers customers lose or misplace their phone at least once per year. The forgetful can now rest easier with the Rogers Phone Finder, an exclusive new service for Rogers customers that helps you locate your lost or misplaced phone.
This service is compatible with all Rogers mobile phones as long as your phone is powered on, connected to the Rogers network and you have registered for this service. As part of our Handset Protection Guarantee Program, your first 5 lookups per month are free. For any additional lookups per month you will be charged $0.20/per lookup and the charges will appear on your Rogers bill.
Here’s how to get set up:
Register in advance
All you have to do is go to www.RogersPhoneFinder.com on a PC, tablet or smartphone, review the terms and conditions, and register your mobile number. Once you register, you will receive a text message on your mobile phone. You must reply “Allow” to complete your registration. Once you have registered, you will be able to use the service.
If you have misplaced your phone, sign in to www.RogersPhoneFinder.com and a Google map interface will open up. To the left of the screen you will see your phone number and a button “Locate my phone.” Just select the button and click “OK” to confirm that you wish to find your phone’s location. When your phone is located a pop-up window will be displayed, click “OK”. Your phone’s approximate address and location will come up on the Google map in your browser.
Have you ever lost your phone? Were you able to find it?
