After searching for it for an hour, I found it under a pile of clothes on my bed. I don't have a landline, so my iPhone 5s is my only link to the outside world. That hour without it seemed like eternity. Geez, it's funny...you don't realize how dependent you are on these devices until you lose them.
Use the find my iphone App. It will send a loud signal until you find it.
Why didn't you use Find My Phone on your iPad?
OP, tell your iPhone every day that you love it. There will come a day when you won't get to say it anymore.
Ya' never miss the water 'til the well runs dry, bucko. Throw it in that bowl by the door as soon as yu come home, then you'll always know where it is.
You really found it necessary to mention the specific model number not just once but TWICE?
Why didn't you just go buy another one after looking for 15 minutes?
You can use an iPad or a computer to make the phone ring until you find it.
Not the brightest color in iOS 7 are we OP?
If you stand in line to buy the latest gadget, you've only got a few days where you can casually mention that you own said gadget and imagine that people somehow aren't thinking what a boob you must be.
What's on your iPhone's iPod?
Fifteen minutes doing something? I'd have killed myself if it didn't require doing something.
It would've sent you a shock if uou had just called it a phone.
Bees you got da golts one?
Easy on OP fellas... his 5s makes him ditzy.
It's gold, isn't it?
This was so deep. Who needs Dalai Lama when we have OP.
How you did it while sucking both thumbs is mystifying.
I was starting to get very depressed,
so I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast.
Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place,
where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street,
I saw my penis lying on a blanket
next to a broken toaster oven.
Some guy was selling it.
I had to buy it off him.
He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen.
I took it home, washed it off,
and put it back on. I was happy again. Complete.

Mary, I'm choked with tears!
Well, I can't imagine being TOO freaked if no one CALLED your friendless ass for an hour. I mean, you would have heard it ring, you know. So, probably not a lot of lost communication there. Angry Birds awaits!
Find My iPhone works like magic. You're funny, OP. 😀
That sounds really unhealthy and disturbing. Technology has made slaves of us all.
Wow, OP. That sounds worse than 9/11. Do you have a gofundme page where we can send donations?
I remember when I couldn't find my iPhone 5s, the gold one, which I had encased in a $700 pleather iPhone 5s case. Even though I had paid $900 for the lost iPhone insurance, I was planning to wave it around on the bus ride to work that day, and, now, none of my fellow commuters could see what I've been saving up for four years for.
Who can forget that day. The sky was so blue.
Another well spent $18.
OP probably had his iPhone stolen at the anonymous gang bang with seven strangers he participated in. You think I am making this up...
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
