    I left my Note 8 in a public restroom this morning.
    When I realized it was missing, my life flashed before my eyes as I ran down 5 flights of stairs and bypassed the elevator to get to my abandoned $1000.00 cell phone.
    Finding her lying helpless on the black TP holder, I breathed a sigh of relief and apologized for my indescretion.
    My heart beat returned to a normal pattern and rate.
    My cellphone forgave me.

    so glad you got it back. I would completely lose it if I left my N8 somewhere. not because of the dollar value, as substantial as that is, but because it is my life in my hand. *shudder*

    Lmao I haven't done it yet with note8 but I've left my note 5 around 3 or 4 times in the restroom when I worked at Kohls. Twice a customer turned it in and other times I ran back to get it lol.

    Edit: yes I forgot I did forget my note8 once but I forgot it at home so I didn't panick lol

    I guess that's an advantage of being a man... having the front pants pocket to put the phone in when in a men's room OR WHEREVER! Less likely to loose it when it's put away...

    I have never left any phone behind.
    Glad you got her back.

    So, what are you going to do to get her to talk to you again? A new case, maybe a nice pay app?

    I've done it 3 or 4 times while at local casinos. I had a heart attack each time, but luckily it was found/returned each time.

    I would have panicked, but at least my gear S3 notifies me when the bluetooth connection drops.

    I've done it before, and my phone was gone within a minute. 😢

    The plus side is that me leaving my old iPhone in that bathroom is what ushered me to the Android side. I couldn't afford another iPhone, and the rest is history ☺️

    I kind of like your story. I know it started out bad and you must have been freaked, and for that I'm sorry to hear. but sooo cool that it ended with you on the Android side, and with a Note, I'm assuming.

    That is what a Samsung watch is for so when you leave your phone it will let you know soon as the blue tooth drops.

    fortunately it works the same for the gear fit2, my goody from the N7.

    Well this was years ago, I was using an iPhone 3gs, maybe an iPhone 4. So over the years I went through an HTC phone, some no name phone, and quite a few Samsungs. I had the note 4, and had to give up my beloved note 7 last year. I'm happy to have a note again ☺️

    Same for my headphones. It'll zap my neck if I go too far! Good thing about BT accessories!

    True story: I walk my dog at the high school by my house. It's 2 streets away, but the highway is 1 way so I have to cross a bridge and come back up on my way home. After a walk one day I couldn't find my phone anywhere. It was the S7E. Long story short, I left it on top of my car! I'm absent minded like that. Only the case kept it from sliding off! So for the N8, I'm only using cases that pass the slide test.

    OP, that would so be me. On weekends I don't carry a purse, so I use my wallet case and if I had to potty, it would go on the tp holder. So glad your brain kicked in soon enough! That could've been tragic!

    I need that case. do you remember which one it was? thanks! and I would totally leave my phone on my roof and take off. I've done it with various things. it's a family thing.

    Before I leave anywhere I always check for 3 things... Wallet, keys, phone. That way I won't walk away without any of them. it is a habit I have formed :P.
