    What's the lost phone app advertised in the new droid commercial and what's the app you all prefer for retrieving a lost or stolen phone?

    I haven't found a good app yet for a lost phone. If I've lost my phone, I usually have a pretty good idea where it is. If they can't tell me "on the dresser in the bedroom" it's useless to me. Knowing where your stolen phone is does no good.

    I use an app that will tell me where I have left my phone if I have it on silent/vibrate. Not really if I "lost" it but it does have an option to give the GPS coordinates of the phone etc. Tested it out a few times and it worked each time. Hope to never use it

    My wife misplaced her phone tonight and I sent her code phrase to her phone and it rang until she found it, handy.. Might not be what you are looking for exactly but just giving some info... GL
