I couldn't find my wallet today. So I picked up my phone intending to call my wallet and follow the ringing sound. This is the second or third time this has happened.

Oh technology, how you continue to fry our brains.

There are times when I lose my television remote and I will whistle or clap, trying to get the sound thingy (the kind you used to see in infomercials?) go off -- except, it doesn't have one.

Whenever I lose my remote I always want to page it like you page a cordless phone.

I don't have a land line. When I can't find my cell phone, I have often thought about calling it, and then realized, I would have to find my phone to call my phone, or I'd have to find my phone to call my husband at work for him to call my phone. Which would be kind of pointless if I could find the phone.

LOL I've done that too.

I'm teaching at a camp right now. No phones but cell phones around.

Well, I called my aunt to schedule a party with her, and I had a COMPLETE Panic Attack, because I couldn't find my phone to write up the information on my calendar. I searched for about five minutes while talking to her, and then hung up and ransacked my room. Then I realized it was in my hand.
(It's a smart phone, unlike its owner)

Actually, it would be kind of cool to embed a tracking device into a wallet, though on the other had it would also be creepy. It might be handy if your wallet were stolen and the thief just took the money and left your ID or any other card that might not be useful in the short term.
Not any worse than GPS in your phone, I suppose.

Today as I walked up to my front door, I was pushing the unlock button on my car fob... it didn't work.

My MIL's house has a remote for the front door.

What would you dial, your credit card number?

That's what I was wondering....

Pretty soon we'll have our mobile phones implanted directly into our skulls.

The resulting melanomas will act as the antenna.

ur icon is crazy. I love it.

I've wished that a number of times when I lose my MP3 player and I'm just about to go to work in the morning! :D I wish it would ring...

I guess it wouldn't be a mock if your wallet was part of your phone's case. I know I was looking into the idea a while ago..there were a few iPhone cases with built in wallets of sort.
But then, if I were doing what you were about to, I would have used my iPhone to call. heh.

I just had to comment on your icon. Leafeon in Ranch = t3h cute!

Kind of on a different level, but I've tried to get my husband's attention with the kissing/psst-ing sounds I use to call my kitty.

Did it work? ;-)

I've tried to answer my wallet before, never called from it though.

My last laughable brain fart, was when I was using the self-checkout at Home Depot. I used my credit card and the machine prompted me to put in the last 4 digits of my credit card number. I punched the numbers in THREE different times, getting more and more pissed off each time I got an error, because I knew I had the numbers right. I even called the cashier over before I finally realized I'd been punching in the last 4 digits of my social, and not the last 4 of the card number. Duh!!!

You may be onto something here. Looks like there's a market for keyring/wallet attachments that you can ring from your phone to find them. Quick, patent the idea!
