I have recently lost my Samsung Galaxy S3. I have been searching for two days now... and I can't find it... What do I do? I don't have a lot of money to replace it. I'm honestly panicking right now, please can someone help me?

Hi Tristan,

Sorry to hear about this unfortunate incident. If your phone is still powered on, you can try using the link below to try and locate your phone. If nothing turns up, your next option would be to report the phone as lost. Koodo has a number of affordable devices available, they may not be as fast or as powerful as your S3 but they'll provide you with a way to communicate.

Thank You, I do think my phone\s battery has died by now... Sadly. So my only other option is to get a new phone? Do I have to pay any sort of fee for losing it?

Really sorry you lost it, Tristan. Unfortunately there is no coverage for a lost phone... if you still owe money on the Tab, it will still need to be paid off I'm afraid. But other than that you won't have to pay extra or a fee.

Have a look at the the 3 phones rikkster posted, I personally love the Moto G and it is very affordable right now (some stores sell it for around $100 outright, a bargain).

Let's just hope that your phone will be found by an honest person who will do the right thing and hand it in, so make sure you check the usual lost-and-found places (kiosk, police station) as well as ask around in places you have been recently.
