WICHITA FALLS, Tex. – A lot of customers have used the “find my iphone” app to find a lost phone.   But one man in Texas really put it to the test.

Ben Wilson was flying over the city of Joplin in a small plane when a change in pressure caused his door to pop open a few inches, just enough for his iphone to slip through and plung emore than 9,000 feet to the ground.

Wilson thought his phone was a goner.  But his grandson tried the “find my iphone” app.

They found the phone 90 miles away, with just a few scratches on it.  It landed in a cow pasture next to a donkey, and the phone still works.

    Aww.. How nice for this man.. Its a good thing he found it.. Now he don’t have to spend another $400 to pay apple to buy another one so that they can pay a china slave $0.07 an hour to make it, and just hope they don’t throw themselves to their death off the top of the building while doing it.
