    Today my ipod was stolen, and i only got it yesterday, well here's the story.....in my school (in australia) no one puts their bags in the lockers provided in the sports department because there are no locks provided.....everyone just puts them on the changeroom benchs....after i changed i made sure my bag was zipped and everything and left for soccer training just like every1 else. after soccer training we came back, my friend was the first to find out that her wallet was opened with money stolen.....then i started looking through my stuff....den i realised that my blazer was missing which had my ipod in it...i then found my blazer on another bench with no ipod in it....i told the teachers who did nothing.....can any1 advise me on wat to do..i reallly want it back,i still have my original receipt + serial number:confused::(

    sorry for my bad english because it is my second language.....

    report to police and check your home insurance policy.
    Saw a brazen little thug grab an ipod right out of a fellow bus passengers hand a few moths ago. Bugger jumped off the bus and was gone, like that.:eek:

    There isn't really much you can do. I think you might be able to have the serial number blacklisted so that if they ever do take it to be fixed it can be recovered, although that might only apply to computers.

    hehe.

    And then you enroll in remedial English class. It is English they speak down under, right?

    Using shorthand when texting is one thing, this is insane. Learn to freakin' type so that us normal folk can understand you!!!! Especially when you are asking for help. If I were to see a post like this asking for technical help, I would completely ignore it.

    siurpeeman was imitating the OP by writing like that intentionally. read the OP's post - this should be the person to whom you recommend the remedial English class...

    If a student walked up to me and spoke as well as you typed I wouldn't do a damn thing either. I'd hand you a dictionary and point you to the nearest English class.
    I would not buy another iPod rather I would spend the cash on an English tutor.

    da? no1? every1? dem? everyfing? bak? dat? den? wich? wif? hoo?? wat? nofing???

    Maybe you should spend more time in English class, this is one of the worst posts I have ever read. If you talk anything like how you write I am not surprised the teachers did "nofing", they probably had no idea what you were talking about.
    Please learn to write intelligently before you post again.

    There's still no reason for others to critize and make fun of him. Nothing but pure ignorance.

    Wish we all could just get along.

    EDIT: And for those too lazy to read...

    Whilst I sympathise with the OP, I can't understand why they didn't just write in proper English?
    They'd have got more help and advice by doing so.

    I don't think it has anything to do with ignorance. I gave up reading the post after the first couple of lines because I don't have the attention span to decipher what they were trying to say.

    I was going to jump in on the "buy a dictionary" bandwagon too, but since that's been sufficiently done, why don't we go on to helping the guy.

    First, you need to report it as stolen to the proper authorities. Call the police.

    Second, what did you use to buy the iPod? Some credit cards offer theft protection insurance automatically, just submit the appropriate documentation to them and they'll reimburse you.

    Third, what about homeowner's insurance (presumably your parents' policy)? Would it offer any suitable coverage?

    Finally, and this may be stating the obvious, either buy a $5 lock and start using the lockers that "nobody uses" (!!) or don't bring expensive electronics to school! You may need to swallow the cost of the iPod and chalk it up to experience. Lesson learned. Don't leave valuable things out unattended, even if "everybody else does it".
