I used to! And I still do, but now I have this fantastic keychain that I can call from my phone. Even better, it has a button on it that I can press to call my phone from my keys. I use one of those features at least a couple times a week. Luckily I've never lost both my keys and phone simultaneously.

I wouldn't really say that I lose them, persay. I misplace them sometimes, although that's gotten a lot better since I designated a dish as their permanent location. But, whenever they end up anywhere else it takes me aaaaaaaages to find them again - but, I wouldn't classify them as lost because I know they're in my apartment somewhere.

I lose my keys every week! Luckily my family is always home when I'm done with school. They're always in the most simple spots. I never look twice and end up finding them with much frustration.

No. My keys have too much stuff on them to not be noticeable, plus the 6 or 7 keys I already have.

Yes. I have a good spot to keep them now, except that I have two on identical keychains. Yesterday I took my bicycle lock key with me instead of the key to my door.

My brother and I used to have a sense for where the other would misplace things. After he moved away from home, he would call me up to have me tell him where he left his keys.

OMG yes, all the time.

It's pretty sad cus I also have 4 sets.
(**Had 4 sets....) I have one left. Hah, so I'm extra careful.

Whenever I get home from somewhere, I never put my keys in my purse. Like, ever.
For some reason, I often just leave them around in my room.

Gotta work on that.... :p

Wow, that's amazing. I don't get how it can call your phone without having a network connection. Is it some kind of blue tooth?

I usually don't lose my keys because I have a hook right by the front door where I put them right as I enter my place. My best friend also has a spare house key and car key of mine in case of the worst case scenario :P

Last week I locked my keys in my car, left them right in the ignition thanks to talking on the phone. Thank god for CAA.

It uses bluetooth, yes. So your phone may have to be within the same apartment or house as the lost object.

I have such a routine with my keys that I rarely lose them. Having to charge a phone every night or two helps with this. The keys are within feet of the charger.

You know what I'd need a tracker for? My books. >_>

This is true. However, if you're not within range (or the phone runs out of battery), the app will tell you the most recent place that you were in range. I had to use this once when I accidentally biked home from work without my keys.
