Just lost my phone today, must have dropped it in a parking lot. Do I have to buy one outright? Wish there was a phone finder on this ... it was a Samsung S6 (no S7 available) just bought a month ago... any ideas?

If it's still on tab you can buy out your tab and start with a new one, so not quite outright. If you setup a Samsung account you can try Find My Mobile.

If you can't find it using those methods, make sure to report it as lost via self serve. Anyone who finds it can use your account and you'd be responsible for any charges they rack up until you do.
