Automatic Location of Mobile Device

To locate a lost or misplaced mobile device, a user spends a lot of time looking for it, or asks another person to call the phone so that it can be located by hearing the ring tone.

The novel contribution is a method to use audio recognition and automatic audio or vibration response to help a user locate a phone or mobile device.

The device can listen for a search phrase such as, "Where is my phone?" and then reply with an electronic voice response, ring tone, audible signal, vibration, etc. The always-listening code can be modified to be working from a lock screen or on mode to listen for a configured user phrase. The user phrase is customizable to recognize the user's voice as well as the user phrase to which it must respond.
