Have your computer find your lost mobile phone

Lost your cell phone? No landline phone? Here’s one solution.

Phonemyphone.com claims that it can be used to

* Find your cell phone
* Set a wake-up call at a specific time
* Escape boring meetings or dates

This site has existed for at least a year. Their privacy policy looks benign. Next time I lose my phone, I’ll give it a try. (I especially like the feature that allows a call to be scheduled, to give me time to go to the car to search for my phone when it rings.)

Caveat: I have no idea what this site does with your phone number. So far, I’ve not noticed anything obnoxious. Carefully read their Terms Of Service before you use phonemyphone.com. (Insert standard disclaimer here.)

Update August 2012: I’ve recently had trouble with phonemyphone.com. I’ve used wheresmycellphone.com instead. Same caveat applies.
