Lost cell phone- a suggestion...

We were able to reunite an owner and their lost phone that we found in a taxi. Just to recap --- we found the phone on the floor in the back seat area and turned it over to the driver. When we exited the cab we noted the taxi company's name and cab number.

I posted a note on this message board and were able to connect with a friend of the person who lost it. After providing us with a description of the phone, we shared the cab information with them and they were able to contact the company and got the phone back.

Seeing how you haven't received a response to date, I would suggest you visit Zihua Rob's information page on Taxis and contact all of the companies (if you haven't already) and see if they've had your phone turned in.

Good luck.

Roberto!

Thanks Roberto,
We managed to find the taxi, and the owner was most helpful, however it appears an unknown next fare must have picked it up. We did offer 1000 pesos incentive. Need to take better care of things. Sad part the phone was two weeks old.

That's too bad. :-(

You might want to check with your home insurance policy, credit card company and phone plan carrier to see if there is any coverage for the loss.

I recall one of our previous Credit Cards had loss, damaged or stolen coverage for articles purchased with the card if it occurred within a certain time frame.

Or report it stolen, most likely would be more successful than being lost. Not lying because it is now a theft.
