Daniel, it might be a very good idea to contact your provider. With some personal information to verify you are who you say you are, you may be able to get them to locate it for you

When it rings, does it go straight to voicemail quickly or was it actually ringing a few times? That's the indicator on whether there is going to be a sound to even listen for.

It rings at least 4 or 5 times before going to voice mail.

I'm calling ATT tomorrow.  It had over 70% charge, so it's good for a couple days if it's still alive.

 My cell phone is still alive. Through google's android device manager, it located it down where I was mowing. Thought maybe I could find it tomorrow if the battery would hold out. Wish the google thing gave GPS coordinates, but it didn't, just a map.

So I drove down in the Kubota tonight, fearing the cell's battery would go dead before I got off work tomorrow. Going by the map, it wasn't where I cleaned the tractor cab's window, so evidently it fell onto the steps of the cab, then fell off later. Being night, things were lots quieter, and I faintly heard a ring. About 60 yards from where I thought it would be, I finally found it! Totally unscathed too! It was under thick cuttings that muffled it's ring. I am one happy camper! And tired! Now I'm too wired to go to sleep!

That is awesome that you found it again! Amazing what today's technology can do. Twenty years ago there was no tracking for a lost phone.

Sorry I'm late on this, but I was going to suggest Google device manager.  I had the same thing happen in July up at the Rally.  We were coming out from a restaurant and I was walking to the bike.  A buddy said something so I turned and walked back a couple of step to hear him.  When I turned back around and started to the bike I noticed this thing on the ground.  I thought that looks familiar.  It was!  It was my phone.  The new Wally world case I had gotten a couple of weeks before had separated from the belt hook.  I got it home and stuffed Shoe Goo down the hole where the hook goes and then put the hook back in.  It has been holding since.  

 

Since I have been loosing weight as I replace my pant's I've been buying the utility, cargo or carpenter pants that have the side pockets.  Glad you found your phone. :thumbs:

My wife was meeting someone to sell kids clothes. She left her phone sitting on the top of her car. Of course she left and before she realized it, it was gone. She went back to the parking lot and looked around, nothing. Went into the store and nothing. So she came home and told me. So I sent her back out to finish her chores with my cell and I kept my work cell.

 

A little while later I remembered that iphone's have the "find my phone" app... I turned it on and bam, it showed it in the middle of the road in front of the store she was at. I called her and told her to go back and look. Sure enough it was right in the middle of the busy highway. Didn't have a scratch on it. Got to love technology... sometimes.

Was on my way to finishing ALL my mowing in one evening, then the return line off the steering orbital valve on my John Deere F935 blew where it rubbed another line.  Easy to fix with a barb fitting and a pair of clamps IF it wasn't in such a spot.  I'll have to pull the deck off to even reach it.  Always something.

Always something.

 

Ain't that the truth. Makes one want to strangle the person who thought of running hoses through such places.  :mad2:
