    I'm from Toronto and went down to Detroit for the Eminem/Jay Z concert and the unthinkable happened....

    I got so plastered that I forgot my iPhone 4 (32gb) in a cab and never got it back! =(

    The amazing thing is that you found a cab in Detroit! As far as your phone, unfortunately, whoever found it probably thought it was part of the Obama stimulus phone giveaway. Thanks for your contribution.

    (seriously, that sucks. I know the feeling of leaving crap in a cab)

    Detroit is covered in iPhone chop shops. Your phone is probably in 500 pieces now shipping to mexico.

    same thing happened to me on this summer when i was on holiday on greece.I left my first gen iphone on taxi (yeah yeah too drunk ,and i was wearing shorts with bad pockets) in the morning i noticed that my phone was missing so i tried to call to my phone but no one answered so i called to the taxi company and they said we might have your phone and the taxi driver who found the phone will call me later.Yeah he did call later that day but he really didnt speak any english :D and my greece is even poorer.So long story short and few days later the taxi driver came to our condo and dropped of the phone ,i tried to slip him 50€ but he didnt take it :) he had even taken few photos with the phone :D I never believed that i would get my phone back but i did.

    so sorry for OPs lost i hope you find new iphone fast.

    You should have started an "I am going to an Eminem/Jay z concert in Detroit...should I leave my iphone 4 at home?" thread...we would have told you to leave it (after flaming you for starting such a thread first:)). Seriously, I would be totally po'd if that happened to me.
