An older gentleman I know would like a smart phone. He's worried
about losing it, though. Is there such a thing as a locator that responds
to a person clapping? I remember a gizmo called the Clapper for turning
lights off and on. I thought it would be nice if he didn't have to mess
another component to make the locator work. Any other ideas?
Because that is the best way to find a lost smartphone, fuckwit.
And I found a perfectly effective way of removing the scrivet,
just found a better one in the link that Clare posted, fuckwit.
Better than anything a lying fuckwit like you produced too.

So, what's this unnamed alleged locating device to a smartphone that locate
it by clapping that the troll implies exists?
Another way that does exist to locate it would be to have the smartphone
set up to access mail and to then send an email to yourself. Mine
issues a chime when a new email arrives. I think you can send texts via
a computer too, so sending texts to the phone would make it chime too.
Simplest, easiest is to ring it from another phone, if you have one.
You can GPS locate it also from a computer, that could help determine
if it's in the house, car, shed or you left it at the library.
Yeah, I have done that myself. In my case the landline is
free with the broadband but I don’t use it for calls anymore.
Yeah, one of those clappers in the smartphone case is likely the best
for him. In theory you can enable full time siri on a recent iphone and just
siri something and hear where the response comes from but in practice at
with my iphone 6s it doesn’t recognise the command from very far away,
certainly not in a house when you have the phone in the bedroom and are
in the kitchen or main room etc. Dunno if any of the androids are much
more sensitive, seems unlikely. Personally in his situation I'd try to get
to have the phone on a lanyard etc so if he has a fall he can call someone,
but when my dad was in that situation, without the walker, I couldn’t get
him to do that. He appeared to have decided that it was the proof that
he had become that decrepit.
You mean lost in the house? If there's a landline available, call it.
There are apps like 'Find My Device' for Android and similar for iPhones
that can pick up the location and display it on a map. That sounds like
overkill if it's close enough for clapping to work.
But we have since been told that he likely wont be able to call the
smartphone from the landline because he appears to want to stop
paying for the landline once he has a smartphone. That would make
sense given that my smartphone plan gives me unlimited calls and
texts and MMSs to any landline or cellphone in the country and
1GB of data a month for just $10 a month.
If he does want to avoid paying for a landline now, its not very
likely that he would be too keen on paying for a smart watch
just to find the smartphone.
