Yes my other half and parents in shop they have not seen it, Ive been back twice to look (there is not many places it could be) and its defo not there. No cctv in shop All I can do is completely empty the big wheelie bin (huge industrial thing) when ive got help to tip it on its side.

phone provider, and cancel the phone... claim on insurance ( if you got any )

it says in the op they have no insurance

In our house we have a 'mummy look' and a 'daddy look', you should have a proper mummy look and hopefully it'll turn up.
You should contact the provider just in case it has been stolen, but also empty your daughter's pockets in case she has it and forgot, or maybe she plugged it into the charger?

There is such a thing of 'looking without seeing'. Make a grid of the shop and then search without your mind wandering and wondering where it can be. Concentrate utterly on the inside of each grid.

I am trying not to nut its hard

i had a similar situation when I left my iphone in b&q whilst paying for something. I was in a bad mood for the next two days. I spoke to them the next day they said nothing was handed in. Then they phoned me a day later saying we have got your phone, the manager took it Home

but watever you do make sure you dont block the phone! Block the sim card only. Otherwise i would of had a blocked iphone.

omg hope u find it i would be sooo

Im sorry but this is utter BS! Everyone here cant find their own noses in my house, and is up to Daddy to do the REAL search.

were you wearing a yellow jacket or something in the shop that you take off before you leave? I did this once in my work, was in the pocket.

CCTV is off as shop is being refurbished - silly thing to do now looking back

are you sure it hasn't slipped down a crack or something? If no one else was there, then it must be there somewhere! Hope you find it

You can book a genius appointment at an apple store, they'll replace it for around £150 iirc.

if yr that upset at the phone i'd suggest you dont forget to insure yr shop http://im-smiley.com/imgs/infomilies/infomilies038.gif
