    Well its been quit a sad day for me actually, I am an employee at the Long Beach Airport in California and tonight at work I lost my iPhone. I post this not in hopes of an Angel returning it to me, but rather for everyone to just take a moment of silence for my fallen friend:(, we shared a lot of good moments together but all good things must come to an end;). . . Looks like a trip to the Apple Store lies ahead for me first thing in the morning. Does anyone know if they are readily available at the Apple Stores yet??

    Sadly enough, this is the only memory I have of my pal.

    Don't know about availability, but man that sucks.


    Probably a dumb question, but try calling it from an unknown number yet?

    yeah I tried calling it, the thing that blows is that the batter was dead when I lost it. Who knows maybe someone that owns an Apple product charges it and answers sometime today or tomorrow morning.

    I'm so sorry.

    I'd go to the AT&T store on Bellflower next to the Circuit City in where Border's is. They had iPhones last time I was in there (another LB resident here).

    Good luck!

    You do realize it's just a phone right? I'm sorry you lost it, but it is just a phone.

    Now, my question is that if you go to get another one will you have to pay full price?

    Ha Ha yeah I didn't cry, yet still very upset! and yes I will have to pay full price for the new phone. Jeez, I'm a college student you would think I would be able to get some sort of a price break...:rolleyes:

    I know. I guess I'd be upset … well I know I would be, but it'd be due to the data on it, not the object. I feel bad for him though. Works at LB airport and lost his phone. Double Whammy!

    I don't think they care if you're a college student when it comes to an item like this. I mean, I could walk in there with my diplomas and credit report and see if they'll cut me a break due to my student loan balances. ;)

    Is there a way you can file it under your insurance as stolen or something?

    we all can't be ballers and and afford to lose an iphone every week and just be mildly upset.

    some of us like myself and the OP who are college students while working. and working hard. we take pride and cherish the things we buy. when money is hard earned it gives you a different perspective on the way you want to spend your money.

    walk a mile in ours.

    Sorry to hear the bad news. Did you happen to password lock so that all the information gets wiped after 10 unsuccessful attempts? :(

    Your right, I know there is no way I can get ANY sort of a deal from Apple. I might actually try a Best Buy, I used to work at the one on Clark and Del Amo while in high-school so i might check that out.

    But hey, the Airport is actually a great place to work, you Long Beach folks may recognized the name "Legend's Sports Bar"? Yep the one down on 2nd street by the beach, Well they opened a "Legend's of Aviation" up stairs at the Long Beach Airport, with the same sport's focused theme. I'm currently a server up there and it is a fun job and helps me pay those AT&T bills.

    Now a whammy! for you would be those student loans, glad my scholarship from Cal State allows me to not worry about educational expenses.

    Yeah you should check it out.

    I worked there from around 04 to 06, store 127!! crazy, however it was a few years back, when Earl was the GM. I was in Media at the time then switched to Car-Fi before I left. The signal hill store was barley being built when I was at Lakewood.

    Walk a mile? Buddy, you better step back and realize that you're going to be far better off in life if you resist your stupid assumptions. Please! :rolleyes: The mile I'll never walk is the mile of entitlement you somehow feel because you're furthering your education. If that is not what you're doing then that is how you're coming off. Perception is often reality. The mile I have walked is a mile you'll never walk because you appear to be quite lazy to me. You'll never know where I've been or what I've done. What I wrote, and what you clearly missed, was my reality and I'm happy to be in debt for what I've accomplished. Wait for it, you'll see what I mean.

    I never said it wasn't a matter of money, I simply said it was an object and a luxury item. The iphone is not a necessary tool in life. To the extent an iPhone is a necessary tool, it will always be a luxury item.

    here.

    your first response sounded like an arrogant spoiled rich kid oblivious to hard earnings
    of the lower-middle class. pretty much just sounded like an as shole. so pardon my
    assumption. i try not to think too hard online and didn't want to empathize with the
    first response. i'll try to give people the benefit of the doubt when i think they're
    being a jerk.
    that job's taken.

    It's just a phone.

    People in "The OC" are weird.

    You do realize Long Beach is not THE OC, which is Orange County, Long Beach is part of Los Angeles, your sig. says your from Southern California and you don't know that?
