    Im soooooooo sad.
    i di the basics: canceled the number, reported the phone stolen, got a police report(even thought it really wont do anything)
    but my life is incomplete!!!!
    now im using a Nokia N95(My sisters untill she got an iphone).
    Its nothing compared to the Iphone
    I guess ill just go in on July 11th and pick up the new one.

    EDIT: Oh my bad, I thought you were complaining cause you sold it and now were iphone-less for a few days. Sorry.

    That sucks really bad man, out of curiosity how's the battery life on the N95? Maps?

    Would you mind editing that into complete sentences?

    But, yeah, what he said. That really sucks, but whoever stole it picked a horrible time to do so.

    Good luck with your phonings.

    Yeah I had my iPhone stolen back in February :(

    I got a Nokia N82 and I really like it but the lack of 3G sucks, but the 5mp camera with flash is pretty rad.

    I can't wait to get the iPhone 3G on the 11th and chill with the Apple peeps ;)

    LOL @ all the funny comments.
    And when i called my dad he asked me how much i sold it for(because the night before i told him i really wanted the 3G Iphone)
    But it really suck, but on the plus side im more focused( i was all the time texting and aiming people and playing games.
    But still sucks, the Iphone is everything.
    And the N95 is pretty good too.
    After having the Iphone for so long and etc, im pretty biased towards any other smart phone lol.
    But its a great phone.
    not as fun as our beloved iphone, but still good.
    And its unlocked.
    My dads friend got if for him about 9 months ago.
    When it was still in Europe.
    And plus side is the camera kicks ass!!!
    i think its 6 Megal pixels.
    and it has a camera upfront, so you can do video calls.

    Wait. Did you sell your iPhone or was it stolen? OR did you sell it and pretend it was stolen? :)

    My last four phones have had this feature, I used it probably once or twice. IMO the only thing it could be useful for is late night amateur porn.

    lol
    It was stolen, not sold.
    and the late night amatuer porn thing is kinda odd......

    sux 4 u.

    that's one reason i bought insurance on my phone. it covers theft or "mysterious disappearances" as well as the physical & water damage. everything except software malfunction ...but that's nothing a drop in the sink won't take care of =)

    While slightly off topic since the poster's iphone was stolen not lost, I thought I'd post a link to Stufbak.com http://www.stuffbak.com

    They sell stickers with a serial number & telephone number and "reward if found."

    The finder goes to their website or calls in and gives them the number they then coordinate getting your lost device back to you. The finder gets a reward with stickers for him/herself and you can also specify a cash reward if you like. CNET tested it in NYC and people actually returned the test gear. Sutffbak reports a 75% return rate. IMHO, if you make it easy for ppl to do the right thing they will. I use their stickers on portable electronics, phones, camera gear, keys, USB memory sticks, etc.

    ...just a thought.

    Sounds good - I'm in the UK though and can't seem to find any similar services apart from ilostmy.com which doesn't seem to be as good as there is no reward for returnees. Anyone know of any other services for the UK?
