Phones have become a near necessity these days. You can go days without a house key or a wallet, but you can’t do anything without your cell phone. That’s why it becomes so much more stressful when you lose it. Thankfully, there are some simple things you can do to avoid this problem.
Don’t Hide It Away
This is perhaps the worst thing you can do. If you hide it, you’re sure to lose it.
Busy Casinos are not like typical businesses where you can ask a worker to hold onto your phone. For one thing, it’s not likely that the worker will be able to find it for you. For another, you could end up causing some awkwardness (read: humiliation) if someone were to turn your phone in without checking its contents first. Who knows, you might have some messages on there that are best left unseen.
The best thing you can do is have your phone on you at all times. Putting it in the back of your pants pocket is fine, as long as your pants aren’t on fire.
If you’re feeling paranoid, you can always put it in your shoe or sock. Just be careful not to trip over it.
Choose Your Phone Carefully
It’s best to choose a phone that’s not so valuable. This way, if you do happen to lose it, it won’t be such a big deal. If you often gamble at the casino, you probably can’t afford a good phone or food, for that matter. I’ve seen some people at the casino that don’t even have shoes. It could be because they spent all their money on casino games, or maybe they just gave up on life. If that’s the case, then the phone you have is probably not that valuable to you.
If you’re more of a high roller, then you might want to spend some extra money on a better phone. In that case, I recommend picking one with a good camera. I know it may seem like a stupid idea since you’re probably going to lose it anyway, but sometimes, people just need a picture of what they look like.
Speaking of which, you should take as many pictures as you can.
Always Have a Backup Phone
If you’re like me, then you probably don’t know what you’re doing. Most likely, your cell phone will end up lost or stolen within the first few minutes at the casino. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a backup phone. This way, if you do lose your primary phone, then you can just use your backup one to order food or call an Uber. Don’t take the risk of not having a backup phone.
There are plenty of great cell phones you can choose from at any price. If you’re in the market for one, I recommend using Amazon to buy it. That way, if it’s the same phone you bought on Amazon, then you know it’s a great product.
Also, don’t buy a cheap one at Walmart. They are usually quite unreliable for anything beyond making calls or receiving texts. You also don’t want to have to deal with those greeters at Walmart who look more depressed than someone who just blew their entire social security check in the slot machines.
Obviously, I’m not a doctor or a psychologist. However, I want to offer some tips and suggestions to help you avoid the common mistake of losing your phone at a casino. If you follow these, then you should be able to keep your phone safe and sound.
