CBS Early Show Finds Natali’s Lost Windows Phone

CNET senior editor Natali Del Conte tests out Microsoft’s My Phone backup/sync/retrieval service in New York City on the CBS Early Show. Basically, she leaves her AT&T Pure in a cab on purpose, then goes back to the office, logs into the My Phone service and uses the phone retrieval features to try to get the phone back. Unfortunately, the GPS couldn’t pin-point the exact location of the phone, but in the end, making the phone display a message asking whomever found the device to return it (with contact instructions) was what turned out to be successful.

Watch the video clip here, or take a look at our walk-through of the My Phone service.

Have you started using the Microsoft My Phone service? Have you lost your phone after setting it up yet?
