Almost 7 million dollars worth of mobile phones are lost around the world each day, a new survey has revealed.

Last year almost 4 million dollars worth of phones were lost in Sydney alone, according to mobile security company Lookout.

The Mobile Lost amd Found survey found the most common places to lose your phone in Sydney is in a coffee shop, a church and a car repair shop. The data also revealed people in Sydney lose their phone once every two years, the Daily Telegraph reported.

But people in Manchester lose their phones more than anyone in the world.

Of the phones that go missing, two out of three disappear between 9pm and 2am, and four phones are lost each day at Niagara Falls.

Lookout analysed data from their 15 million users who had used the company's application to locate their lost or stolen devices in 2011.
