Phone theft

Jump to last reply

Recent posts have talked about mobile phone theft in Europe.

If you live in the US, you will no doubt have seen the news stories about cell phone theft here. You may have seen the video of thieves driving a stolen BMW through the front window of an Apple Store and the woman being mugged on the street for her phone.

According to the stories, 1 of 3 US robberies involve theft of a cell phone. The street value of an Apple phone is ~$300 in the US.

So there is no reason to be particularly paranoid about your phone in Europe. Phone theft is an international phenomenon.
