that much since it is very easy to get.

This service will help you get back your phone with  4 options which are: Ring, Lock, Erase and  show your Windows Phone on a map. You must be signed into your Microsoft account on your Windows phone to be able to use this service.

>>To make your phone ring out or lock it, go to account.microsoft.com/devices and choose the phone you want to ring or lock, then click Find My Phone.  To make your phone ring, click Ring and then follow the instructions. It will ring even if the volume is off or set to vibrate.
