    Hi people, my mom's iphone was stolen this morning... She was hospitalize and I think the thief is someone that worked at the hospital...

    It seems that the thief had switched off the phone...

    Is there any way I can find where the iphone is? Or make it explode? (( my mom's idea... :D ))

    Let's answer the question with another question.

    Do you have MobileMe, and did your mother's iPhone get tied to it?

    MobileMe. It can be very useful in such situations. But you have to think of it a-head of time.

    If they have tried calling anybody while your Mom's SIM was still in it there then you might be able to look up online (by logging into her account on phone network website) who they called. You could then call this number to track them down.

    I got a phone back before by doing this. Some kid had it and after a couple of police theats he gave up his buddy who gave up the phone! :D

    If that doesn't work you can get the network to shut the phone down permanently so at least you have the satisfaction of knowing they are not able to use it! :p

    Probably not much chance of finding the phone unfortunately. Make sure your mom has changed all the passwords of any accounts that can be accessed on the phone (email, etc.). If she thinks it was stolen by hospital staff (and if that's true it really stinks) she should report it to hospital security and maybe the administration.

    We did :/ But they told the security guard to check all lockers and when he found nothing, it means case over :mad:
