I have a fairly large collection of cell phones that I manage. I'd like an easy way to label the back of each one with its phone number. I realize the phone numbers are easily accessible in the phone's OS but in many cases the phones will be off -- so I need an easy way to determine the phone's number via quick visual inspection.
Things I've Tried
- Avery Labels: They disintegrate after the phone is used for a while, presumably from hand sweat. Ink smears.
- Scotch Tape: I tried placing transparent scotch tape over the Avery label or other piece of paper. Kind of works on flip phones but with iPhones, something about the material used to construct the back of the phone prevents the tape from sticking for any length of time.
- Label Maker: Tried a cheap Dynmo label maker. The labels don't adhere to the back of the phone. They actually pop/fall off within minutes.
Seems like a ridiculously simple problem but can't find a technique that works. The solution doesn't have to be pretty or elegant; I just need to see the phone's number on quick visual inspection so I can grab and power on the phone I need.
