I dont have any feel good stories but i just wanted to say SORRY and send you some ((((hugs)))) hopefully have insurance on the phone.

what company are you with because ALL iphone have a GPS tracker and the insurance company should be able to track your phone..even if it is powered off.

Hope your day gets better pumpkin!

Did you go to customer service and ask if someone turned it in? That sucks. I’m sorry…I would be so upset if someone stole something from me. Why can’t people just be honest and take things they find in stores to the front desk and say ‘this was on the floor, someone might be looking for it’? Do people not realize that this would make the world better, instead of being selfish and uncaring and keeping it for themselves?!

I dont really have any personally, my friend just got BOTH his ipods in his car stolen last week. 

But I did see a story on the bee about someones Fiance losing his debit card afraid that someone had swiped all his money already, but when he got to a bank, someone had turned his card in.  There is hope that there are still decent people out there… We’ve found wallets on the ground before, and mailed it back to the owners, though we did take the $5 cash out the of the wallet to pay for it…

@coffeegal85: i work for a cell phone company…and im telling you insurance if the best thing you could get for your phone! just think of it as a protection for your investment!

i think verizon sales refurbished phones for cheap….. but i would def call verizon and see if there is anything they can do….even if it is just to gps the phone….

Oh my gosh, that just sucks! A few months back, someone pick-pocketed my FI’s phone, and then called me and tried to blackmail my Fiance to return it. He basically wanted my Fiance to give him $50 for his phone. Even though it cost more to get a whole new phone, my Fiance was not going to meet up with some crummy guy and give him $50 for a phone that belonged to him. People really do suck sometimes. πŸ™

@parasol: Omg the same thing happened to my MIL!!! Someone stole her phone when she was at a conference. She called and called and eventually someone picked up. Some homeless guy had it and was at a bus station with it. She offered him money if he’d put it in a cab and send it to her. They had this huge back and forth, he got really angry and started making demands, so she just had the phone deactivated and ended up buying a new one. Thankfully the phone company (Virgin) felt really sorry for her and gave her a new phone of about $400 for $50!!!

I had my wallet stolen once – and it had my social security card in there because I had just started a new job!  It sucked initially, but worked itself out.  A guy even called saying he found my wallet and offered to bring it to me, with everything but the cash still in there.  He asked me out after giving it to me, but I declined because I was dating someone else at the time.  I was also a little suspicious he was the one to take it in the first place.  Should have given him some $ as a reward but I was a poor new grad and it didn’t occur to me.

This happened to me with my blackberry , it was the white bold and I dropped while skiing (fml) . I was calling and then it seemed like it was turned off – I was hoping it was dead in the snow opposed to someone having my personal information/emails . 3 Days later I got a call from someone saying they had found it that night (still strange that they didnt contact me for 3 days) but I got it back ! hold on to hope !

I found someone’s cell phone in the middle of a gravel the road yesterday actually.  I cleaned it up (it was full of dust and sand), then sent a mass text to everyone in the contacts: “I have found your friend’s phone.  Call or text me at xxx-xxxx so I can return it”.  I got a reply from one of the friends that he was with the owner at a park across town.  So I drove there to give it to him.

Now… I hope you feel better.  πŸ™‚
