It's your last day of vacation on the East Coast and you couldn't have had a better time... until you realized you left your iPhone in the cab on the way to the airport. Waiting to get a new one wouldn't be so bad if you didn't desperately need to text your boyfriend and update him on a last minute flight change. Now what? How will you let him know you'll be landing 3 hours late?
