Lost Your Phone? Ugh
We get it. Losing a phone is extremely frustrating and downright stressful. Your cell phone has your contacts. It does your banking. It searches the web for information. It is your GPS driving companion. It tells you the weather. It displays your stocks. It keeps you connected to the world through texting, social media, online purchasing… it IS your connection to the world. A lost phone means you are involuntarily unplugged and that disconnect most likely will come at the worst possible time. All sorts of thoughts run through your head. Was it stolen? Where did I see it last? Can I retrieve my data if it needs to be replaced? …etc.
You may not want to hear this, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Once you retrieve your lost phone or you replace it, then you can return and read the rest of this blog.
Phone Trackers – A pound of cure
There are over fifty phone finder devices on the market. These devices came into the finder market around the year 2012 and have picked up steam ever since. These cell phone finders are there to help you once you have lost your phone. But, at that point, you have already experienced the stress of a lost phone.
Many of these trackers have attempted some form of phone reminder. These devices have been plagued with false alerts and they try to correct this by cranking up the power to maintain the Bluetooth® connection. This drastically reduces battery life and increases the distance before the alert occurs which could be the difference of retrieving your phone or not retrieving your phone. They will also alert when the phone suspends the app or if there is a phone update.
So, if you have tried phone trackers in the past, or maybe you are using a phone tracker. Then, maybe you want to try a phone reminder. The Prox PRD™ can be connected in less than 30 seconds. There is no phone app (so no visit to the app store) and there is no tracking or registration. The Prox PRD™ is highly sophisticated on the inside but surprisingly simple on the outside to deliver the best possible user experience to take the stress of a lost phone out of your life.
Phone Reminders – An ounce of prevention
A phone reminder alerts you BEFORE you leave your phone behind, BEFORE you experience all that stress, BEFORE you have to think through where you last saw your phone. Sure, most finders have tried to give some sort of separation alert, but most have failed. They have struggled with maintaining a secure Bluetooth® connection with the phone and thus repeatedly give false alerts that become annoying. Read their reviews online. People are disgusted with the number of alerts that don’t mean anything. Soon, if the large number of these alerts don’t become annoying, then they are no longer heard. We call this the “cuckoo clock syndrome”. Then, what is further annoying, is that when there is real cause for a separation alert of leaving your phone behind, you don’t hear it, because your brain has blocked it out.
The Prox PRD™ is a phone reminder not a phone finder. It reliably alerts you BEFORE you leave your phone behind with no false alerts. That means, the PRD alerts you only when you leave your phone behind, before you have the stress of a lost phone.
Most tracker devices have had very unreliable reminders. The Prox PRD™ is known for mitigating false alerts and being the first reliable phone reminder device. The Prox PRD™ has gone through thousands of hours of software development and device testing. The Prox PRD™ will give you a consistent phone reminder that is extremely reliable when you need it most, so you don’t have to think about the stress of losing your phone.
