A Happy Ending Losing a Phone in a London Taxi
What do you do when you lose an iPhone in a London Taxi? Since we lived this tale we can tell you what we did and perhaps you can take a few of these tips in case this ever happens to you. You don't have to be in London to have this happen so keep that in mind. Most of all believe in the good of humanity, that there's a high probability the person who finds your phone will step up and return it - possibly higher if there's a reward attached to it.
Probably the top reason for losing your phone is doing something out of the ordinary. We were on vacation, still reeling from jet lag, when we got in a taxi heading for Victoria Station to catch the high speed train to Gatwick Airport in London. As our taxi dropped us off I got out and collected my 2 bags while my husband paid the taxi fee. In London the taxicabs have a back seat and 2 folding seats that are attached to the back of the front seats. My husband moved from the back and flipped a seat closer to the driver to pay (see photo). As he did so his phone fell into the backseat and since it is black it blended into the surroundings. It wasn't until we boarded our high speed train and the doors closed that he looked at me and said, "I have some bad news, I left my phone in the taxi." - UGH! I did not get an international package since we decided he would get it for his phone. I would rely solely on WiFi to communicate back home.
So, what did we do?
