Following our post earlier this week on sticking a reward-if-found label to your mobile, several commenters suggested an alternative that’s potentially less aesthetically intrusive: setting your phone’s wallpaper to display the same information.

For maximum peace-of-mind if you’re a phone-losing klutz, you could always implement both.
