Hey there koodo! If your customers are anything like me then they are always losing your phone. What if I told you that my idea was when ever you lose your phone you could simply say a phrase that you have chosen such as "here phone" or "where's my phone?" And the phone would voice recognize that you have lost you phone and would virtually yell back to you and say "here I am!"

My second idea is a two piece sensor where one piece goes into your head phone jack and the other piece on your key chain; that way weather you lose your phone or your keys it will tell you where one or the other is either threw screen display or beeps

These are great ideas, Would make life a lot easier for me too.

Maybe we could have a computer app that will locate the phone too, for when we're home...

I would take this suggestion to the actual phone manufactuers. Koodo is limited as remember, they DO NOT make the phones. The max Koodo could do is build an app, which may not even be able to do what you ask. But this is IMHO would be a huge waste of time and resources for Koodo... if they even could.

A product like this already exists on the market.

They do have a tracking device but its $70 and you have to subscribe to the service monthly... That's the only one I know of.
If Koodo made an app and it worked it would be nice. Since the phones they have are already capable of "listening" we know it's possible and fairly easy to implement.

It matters on you're phones operating system. The stock apps are ok. BlackBerry Protect for BB OS7 and 10. Android Device Manager for Android or Avast/Lookout (Android as well). And as always iCloud + Find my Phone on Apple.

Ah. I suggest you take a peak at Lookout then. I used it for years for my Android phones and tablets. There premium plan is $3 USD/mon which is about $49/yr CAD. But the premium allows you to backup call history and photos. Photos is kind of pointless as latest Android version's already allow you to backup this stuff to Google Drive or Google+ Photos, but current Device Manager still does not allow you to do some nifty stuff like have your phone take a pic of intruder or thief :).

I'm getting it now... Pictures aren't much issue for me or any backup stuff... I really hate google forced things as they are these days... Use one thing... Sign up for 10. :p but oh well.
The screaming phone thing should be great for me. I only lose it at home. Its in my purse safely when out. The only issue is that the phone goes black and won't shut off or turn on!! Hahaa but that's another lollipop thing. I'm often stuck alone without a car and when I lose the phone I nearly have a fit. Health issues... Could need it in a hurry...
Thanks :)

You are mostly welcomed. But as I said Lookout has some nifty "just in-case" features that are not offered by default Google app. The fact that it sends a dying flare before the battery dies is pretty cool and helps saving last known location of the phone, until its powered back up :) And come one how awesome is it to take pics of thief's from front cam and having it send to you via email :)
