Steps

  1. 1
    This could be useful if you lose your phone and want to give a method of contact to somebody who finds your phone and wants to be a Good Samaritan
    .
    To start, take two fingers and swipe down from the home screen.

  5. 5
    Type the message
    .
    The typed in message is this: "If found please call 555 1213." Of course you would want to use a real phone number and probably not the phone number on your device, since if you've lost it there is no use of having them call you, but may be a trusted friend of whom you can leave the phone number or office phone number.
