    sorry to be ranting but its just not fair somebody stalked me to get this phone. It happened at school during second period in P.E. I havent even taken out the phone i just changed, while the phone still in my pants. I put my clothes in my locker which is pretty hard to open unless you have a crowbar. Sadly i come back from P.E. and i put on my pants. And no iphone plus my locker being opened from the bottom but not the top. THIS SUCKS!!!! i reported it and deactivated my phone but i know i wont get it back. Somebody knew where my locker was and knew i had one. I never showed it to show off or never took it out in the locker area. Sadly as always nobody saw anything or heard anything. Eh why do people do this. Im really pissed and now i have no phone what so ever :(:(:( cheer me please:)

    My suggestion...

    is to fill out a police report, see if your Visa/Mastercard/Discovery/AMEX cards, (whichever you bought the iPhone with) will cover merchandise that was purchased on their card and subsequently stolen, thereby getting your money back from them. Most credit card companies will guarantee this type of purchase. Maybe you can get your IMEI number and ensure your carrier can check to see if it shows up as being in use, then coordinate with your carrier to notify the police. I know one person that had his iPhone returned in this manner. I'm sorry to hear about your loss! :(

    how old is it? if you've bought it within 90 days or so many credit cards have theft/accidental damage insurance.

    edit: damn sfstatestudent... you beat me.

    i could tell immediately that he didn't live in poland... you can tell because polish americans are more proud of their heritage than natives are, and flaunt it whenever they can ;)

    tak? :D

    Sorry, but I'm working with my BlackBook 2.4...

    and I seem to be "flying" with this awesome keyboard. It's so much better than my MB 2.16, and the keyboard for my Mac Pro! :cool:

    I'm truly sorry for your loss. I'd potentially murder anyone who stole my iPhone (If and when I own one.) And if you do find out who did it, I will not think any less of you if you do the same :) Good Luck! Keep us posted.

    i don't understand why someone would steal a CELL PHONE. an ipod i can understand (not saying in any way i condone this, unfortunately it's a fact that some people are lowlifes)

    glad to hear you'll get a new one, and hopefully they track down your original, or at least the person who took it. i had my entire stereo system stolen from my car so i totally feel your pain.

    Sign up a new gmail account with a fake name.

    Look on local craigslist and email everyone close to where you live who has the same model of phone for sale (especially one without box, phone only), and see if it's anyone from the school.

    They might be able to track it down with IMEI. Contact AT&T and T-Mobile with your police report. Your IMEI number is on the iPhone box.

    Or the device may be covered under your parent's homeowners/renters insurance policy. Mine covers a laptop lost/stolen outside the home.

    cant you track the phone through another gps device? I am sure theres ways of doing it. If that was my phone I'd make sure I found it and the person who stole it would get a nice fist to the face.
