lost phone on the S40 train

New Author


Yesterday (16.02) in Pfaeffikon SZ I lost my Samsung Galaxy S10 phone on S40 train from Rapperswil to Einsiedeln.

It was on one of those "side" foldable chairs (where people often sit while with baby trolleys). I left the phone on a seat with a backpack and then, in a rush, took the backpack and the chair folded with my phone!

I made a test today and indeed a phone does not fall in such situation - it just stays on the seat while the chair folds...

Is it possible it could still be there? Do the services open these chairs everyday for cleaning etc??

The S40 is not very busy and people rarely use these chairs especially the one that are close to "normal" seat as the space is a bit constrained...

I checked a few trains after the event but with no luck. The phone is still ringing.

Any hints? Could it still be there after 24h?

Thank you!

Looks like it is found 🙂 thank you all for reading!

Remember, if it stays in the foldable chair it can be trapped there for a while!
