Default I left my iPad on the airplane

I did the stupidest thing flying back with my wife...left my iPad in the seat pocket in front of me on the airplane.

What should I do? I'm panicking.

Is there any way to retrieve this? Will someone steal my identity?

Can you send it a message asking whoever finds it to contact you? I know you can with an iPhone using Find My Phone, not sure with the iPad....??..?

Thanks, Ed. Unfortunately I was very lax with that kind of thing. I installed nothing that can help me track it. I will have to go back to the airport tomorrow to see whether it is in lost and found. Otherwise, it is probably just lost.

I would IMMEDIATELY call the airline. Waiting to go to the airport tomorrow can pretty much guarantee that it is lost.
FYI - for anyone - the Find My Phone app is the smartest thing to install on your i-Whatever product - you have at least a 50% chance of recovering a lost object that way.

I did. And guess what? The (Indian) rep called the airport. Nothing there. Next step: Fill out a web form for lost items. Argh!!!!! You know what that means: NOTHING.

Don't you love these web forms? Does anyone read these things? Is there anything that makes you feel more impotent than filling out some web form that you're sure no one will read?



You know, it's funny: I'm typing this into a computer and I what I hate most right now is automation, computerization. Where are the people when you need them?

I can guarantee that either nobody checked the seat pocket - or the cleaning crew has it. If the former, the next passenger might just be good and turn it in, the latter, well, you can hope for the best.
