    Don't the iPhones have some sort of security thing where they can track the phone? or did I dream that? :eek:

    Glad your ok though, I'm sure it was a scary experience. Just be thankful you got away unharmed. :)

    That really sucks. I think people who mug/commit other crimes a 68516 or higher should be burned at the stake.

    May you get it back promptly. Good luck.

    You can replace the phone, but not your life so don't think about the phone too much!

    There will be newer version coming soon!

    Did the picture that the lady took include the license plate of the car?

    What did the police say?


    Hope everything turns out well

    Hopefully you'll see your "baby" again soon. They need to put sensors in them that shock other people who try to use them. If they did that, I'd buy 2.

    That really sucks man. Sorry to hear that. If you bought it with your credit card, can you claim insurance?

    I'm never using my phone in public again. Ever. This is the second thread on one page about stolen iPhones. At least mine is in a dark blue case, and might be mistaken for something else. :mad:

    Man, I guess London has gone downhill since my days at UWO.

    AT&T can't and won't do anything for you (just reiterating what this poster said).

    That sucks :( Hopefully you were somehow covered, although I don't see that unless you specifically bought insurance for the device.

    I'm extremely curious as to what you said to the person who you were on the phone to? Did you say "i've got to go" and then hang up, did you even hang up? I'd love to know.

    wow, simply wow. Actually, I kind of want to know too :eek:

    To the OP, I am really sorry that happened to you. Someone stole my *new* ipod 5.5G right when they came out, right at school during my soccer practice. Nothing like being mugged, but nonetheless horrible. I hope you get it back man!

    It's kind of like what would happen in Curb Your Enthusiasm if you watch it. Larry David just got a wiz bang phone, someone is about to tell him something really important over the phone and he gets mugged. He tells the mugger to just wait a minute, this is a really important call. haha. I love it. But, no, what did you say to the person on the phone if anything???
