No matter how conscious you are of your phone, things get lost. If you've lost your phone or other gadget, here's an easy way to ensure the (hopefully) good-natured soul that finds it can get it back to you.
If you're not the type to slap a sticker on your phone, there's another way to make sure the first thing that pops up on your phone is your contact info—just put it on your lock screen or wallpaper.
If you've got an iPhone or any other phone that can easily take screenshots, you can put together a contact info wallpaper all from the comfort of your device. Just open up any app in which you can edit text, write down your info, and snap a screenshot. Then make that screenshot your wallpaper, so anyone who finds your phone is sure to see it.
The great thing about this tip is that even if you set a passcode lock on your smartphone, chances are the phone has a lock screen that still displays your contact info screenshot, so people can see your information but not get into your phone. Now you just have to hope that if you do lose your phone, a kindly soul finds it. In addition, this tip works for any text—such as "in case of emergency" contacts or a quick to-do list for the day.
