*Hugs* That’s absolutely terrible! Have you ever thought about getting something like keychain pepper spray? You can find it just about anywhere.

@Miss Care Bear:  I’m sorry that happened to you! πŸ™ There has been an insane increase in iPhone theft lately, especially due to the fact that these are some of the most expensive phones and they are easily erased and sold as new. My mom told me this last month and since then, I don’t even leave my phone on tables in restaurants or anywhere. Just be really careful next time and try to sit in crowded areas if you can – at rush hour that shouldn’t be a problem. 

πŸ™

Ugh I am so sorry! This happened to my friend a few months ago. The police told her never to hold her cell phone in her hand on the train and I’ve tried to be mindful ever since. It’s so easy to grab a cell phone and run right before the doors close.

@Miss Care Bear:  I hope they do too. Did you activate the Find my Phone feature?? Idk if it works when the phone’s off though.

I am so sorry this happened to you Frown

I know iPhone theft has been really bad lately, I make sure mine is zipped in my purse or in my pocket until I am inside my car or house. Like @Mimoza I don’t even keep it on tables in restaurants, they are so easy to steal.

Did you by any change have the Find My Iphone App on your phone and set up? I have all my mac devices on it (macbook air and iphone) and I can locate them from any apple device or online. If you didn’t have it you should download it next time.

Again, I am so sorry that you #1 got mugged, that is so traumatic and #2 lost your phone and #3 had to buy a new phone that just sucks.

This is a big problem in Montreal right now – the police have been warning for months that we should all keep our phones/tablets in pockets/purses/out of sight because theft on the metro and the buses has been on the rise. It’s so easy to be a bit lax about it because overall it’s pretty safe here; I certainly rarely take the advice to keep it zipped up. I’m so sorry this happened to you πŸ™

A few years ago, I had a really awful incident in the evening on the blue line with a large group of young men. It took me *months* to feel okay on the metro alone again. It’s so upsetting to not feel safe in your daily routine anymore. I promise it will get better and you’ll start feeling less nervous and upset, but I know that feeling…
