Today, my mobile phone wouldn't turn on. I took it in to the phone store, but they won't fix or replace it because the account is in my dad's name, not mine. He's abroad for the next month, and the only way to get a hold of him is on a number I only stored on my phone. FML

They can be dropped out of a space shuttle and not break. But, I'd feel pretty sorry for whoever has the misfortune of being hit on the head with the diamond/titanium fusion they call the Nokia.

My LG was hit by my sisters car, my dads motorcycle, my friend on a bmx bike landing a jump off a curb after it fell out of my pocket, and dropped hundreds of times and it didn't break. The only thing that killed it was my dream of getting an iPhone.

How old do you think op is? -_^ a month is not That long, especially if they're old enough to be by themselves which they likely are otherwise the other person(s) would have the number
The issue is lack of a phone, they do more than make calls nowadays you Do know, right? A good majority of people I meet (myself included sometimes, and I'm not saying it's a good thing) don't appear to be able to exist 30 seconds without their phone, let alone 30 days (give or take)

My phone company allows me to see the numbers I called on my bill online. Check to see if yours does too, and maybe you can retrieve the number if you've called him in the past.

Working for a telecommunication company, you should be able to take the SIM card out and place it in any similar make of phone to retrieve your contacts - if you stored it to your SIM card in the first place. Good luck!

If it's that important a number you should have noted it down elsewhere as backup. It's not shameful to shun technology and turn back to our old ways once in a while.

But you do have a valid point. People are way too reliant on technology now. Really, it could go either way because he truly wasn't thinking about how valuable that number was (at least not enough to write it down in case a situation like this occurred), but there's also nothing he can do about it either.

Actually it is valid that the dad has a different number than his usual cell phone. When traveling out of the country often setting up a cheap, short-term plan with a cheap short-term phone is the best option.
