Globally it amounts to hundreds of millions of phones per year.
Probably similar numbers of people lose their wallets. glasses and keys too, something of which I done neither and have no plans to do anytime soon :)
I'm a very strict creature of habit and I always check pockets when I get up from seats in restaurants, movies, etc. to make sure I have everything before I take one step from my seat. Likewise, I always put my stuff in the exact same place when I get home, never deviate, never misplace or lose squat. My wife on the other hand just tosses things in her purse willy nilly, lays her stuff here and there in the house, is always looking for something she misplaced and then yells at me when I point it out. Go figure.
