Model Answer 1:
Well, today’s smartphones are loaded with features which we often use for different purposes.

And here I would like to share the incident when I used my phone to find my father’s lost mobile phone. Actually, almost a month ago my father went to the market to buy some groceries. But when he came back, he was pretty disappointed as he had lost his phone in the market. I instantly tried to call the number but no response despite several attempts. 

At this point, we understood it has gone into the wrong hands. It was not only an expensive device but had a lot of important information such as contacts, messages, photos and others.

When everyone lost hope, I decided to track the mobile. Actually, my mobile phone j has advanced features which helps to track different devices. Within 5 minutes I found the location of the handset. 

However, it was the nearest tower, not the exact location. Simultaneously, shared the post on my social networking platforms Instagram, and Facebook and you won’t believe it, in half an hour, I received a call from a mobile phone store where a junky was trying to sell my father’s phone. I immediately visited the nearest police station and narrated the story. The police officer accompanied me to the outlet and arrested the thief and returned the mobile phone. 

My father was extremely delighted to get his mobile phone back and he appreciated and felt proud on me for the way I handled the situation. 

Overall, it was the time when I used my smartphone for something important.
