0800 PHONEHOME – What To Do If You Lose Your Phone At A Festival

Never lose your friends or be stuck without a phone at a festival again!

Ever lost your phone at a music festival?

Dead phone battery stopping you finding your friends at a festival?

We’ve all had those sinking moments where your phone dies, or you lose your mates in the crowd and have no clue how or when you will ever find them again. In the past I would have just carried on, hoping that I would miraculously see them coming towards me in the distance like a scene from a romcom movie – however this is rarely the case and I’m older and wiser now!

Luckily for us we’re in 2021 and there is a brand new service you can use to avoid wandering around waiting for your romcom moment. A service which also doesn’t rely on (notoriously terrible at a festival) 3G/4G/5G or phone data – Ideal for when you’re ankles deep in a festival field or travelling around the UK where cell service is patchy at best! 👇

>>> Welcome to the newbie on the block… 0800 PHONEHOME <<<

Launched in 2021, the brainchild of friends David Butler and Alex Clarke, 0800 PHONEHOME is a fantastic solution to the time old issue of a dead battery or lost mobile phone! David was having coffee with his dad between lockdowns when they realized how attached we’ve all become to our mobile phones and therefore what we would do if our mobile phone died, broke, or got lost and we needed to call family or friends for help!

0800 PhoneHome allows its members to access & call their contacts from any phone in the UK whether it’s a mobile, landline or payphone! No memorising phone numbers or worrying about terrible cell service – HALLELUJAH!

How Does 0800 PhoneHome work?

How Can It Help Me Find My Friends At A Festival?

1 – Simply sign up to use the service, and store your top 5 contacts on your online account and select how many ‘Call Tokens’ you need.

2 – Fast forward to a festival field and you find that your phone is nowhere to be found, or you battery has died, simply dial 0800 PhoneHome from any phone in the UK, enter your own mobile number and 4-digit PIN, then select one of your stored contacts from the menu.

0800 PhoneHome does the rest – they dial the contact number you selected and put you through to them, easy isn’t it?

I lost my phone and my friends at Glastonbury after weaving my way to the front of the Pyramid Stage trying to see Stormzy. It was dark and my first year attending the festival so I didn’t know my way around. This would have been PERFECT if I had it back in 2019!

Can’t Decide/Commit To Your Top 5 Contacts?

Don’t worry – You can easily change your ‘Top 5 Contacts’ in your account simply by logging onto the website and swapping them out whenever you like. Perfect if your festi crew changes or you are at an event with different people!

My kids love festivals and are now at that age where they are doing them without me. Of course, as a mum I worry about them loosing their phone or not being able to contact me if they get lost or in trouble. This service sounds fantastic to give parents that added piece of mind!

How Much Does It Cost?

As it’s an ‘0800’ number the call is 100% FREE to the phone owner so you can borrow a friend’s or even a stranger’s mobile phone at a festival, the landline at a bar, or a payphone if you are lost out and about – and it won’t charge them anything!

0800 PhoneHome would normally costs £2.99 a year for a single account, or £9.99 for a family account, but as I’ve partnered with them, I am able to offer all my lovely That Festival Blogger readers a discount!

TO GET IT FOR JUST £1.99! <<

The call costs are covered by your ‘Call Tokens’. Just buy as many or as little as you need at checkout. When you set up your account, you will be prompted to buy your ‘Call Tokens’ – A bit like old school Pay-As-You-Go phone credit, but better! 15 call tokens cost just £3 and will never expire. Essentially, for only the price of a large coffee, you can sign up today to make sure you don’t get caught out at your next festival, staycation, or vacation should the worst happen and you find yourself stuck without a phone!

Stay safe and don’t forget to 0800 PhoneHome!
