Have you considered upgrading your trousers to the kind with pockets?

A modern phone in the pocket of a modern pair of trousers.  Are you crazy?

Have you thought of keeping it with your keys and wallet, that you don't lose?

Maybe sellotape it to your hand?

This is definitely turning into a prevention rather than cure scenario.

Sometimes prevention is the best option. What's better if stabbing yourself in the eye hurts? Take painkillers, or stop stabbing yourself in the eye?

All I asked was does someone know a good way to locate your phone after you've misplaced it.  Not should I self mutilate?

Thanks but I should have mentioned I don't have a home computer.  I do have a home phone. 

How are you typing this then?

Simple solution.

Buy a laptop. Install Kubuntu, KDE Neon or a Linux distribution of your choice and add the KDE Desktop Environment. Install the KDE Connect app on your phone. You can control your phone from your laptop, and it has a find phone feature.

GSConnect extension on the gnome desktop (Debian, centos, fedora).

Well I found a way that covers most bases.  Instead of setting the phone to silent put it into do not disturb mode and add my home phone number as a favourite contact and then add favourite contacts to the do not disturb exceptions.  I can continue being careless with my phone when at home.
