I have a great tip for when you can't find your cell phone or your land line portable phone. I tried it and it works great! Just go to this site, type in your number and click "Hello" and it will ring!

Excellent site and this was fun to test out! :-)
I keep this site in my favorites and have used it many times. Sure saves a lot of headaches searching for the phone!
Unless you have lost both your land line and cell phones, wouldn't it be simpler to use one phone to ring the other? Maybe, I'm just being paranoid about personal information over the internet.
Thanks! I can get rid of my land line now! I get my internet through cable and the only thing that prevented me from switching to just my cell was the fear of not being able to call myself if (when) I misplaced my cell phone. This will save me $350 a year!
Great! Glad I could help out!
Thanks. I missed this great tip! I shared it with my Computer Club in our monthly newsletter. I am the editor of the newsletter and I love Kim Komando's website. We get a lot of techie tips and some others, as well. ThriftyFun.com and Komando.com are my staples!
Simplify, glad to help you out as well. I wish there were a computer club in my area. I too, have learned so much from Kim Komando but right now I have problems with mine that I am waiting for my son to help me with remotely.

Too much trouble to go turn on the computer when I misplace my cell phone. I just call my cell from my land line or have someone else in the house call my cell. (03/04/2010)
Since I have a landline and a cell, if I lose my cell, I just call from the landline. Or vice versa. But this is a great idea, because more and more people are going with just the cell and getting rid of their landlines altogether. I would except we live in an area where the cell reception is very iffy. So this is a fantastic idea! (03/04/2010)
I know several people who've relinquished their land line phones. I'll happily pass the word! (03/04/2010)
