Did you try calling it? Do you know exactly where and when it was taken? If so you could make some signs for a reward for a lost iPhone. If you can't get ahold of your phone I would cancel the service to it immediately as to avoid frivolous charges.

how did it get stolen at school? p.e./athletics?

hmmm.
if this happened to me, this is what i would do.

1. call the phone a million times until either someone picked up, changed the voicemail to their name(it happens, trust me), or turned the phone off(meaning it not just goes straight to voicemail).
2. i would call the school to see if anyone has turned one in. when i was like in 3rd grade i lost my Mickey Mouse watch and someone actually turned it in, and i'm wearing it right now.
3. if that was a no go, then i would go online and look at the recent calls. if there had been recent calls made, i would spam those numbers until someone coughed up the information(i would basically threaten them somehow until i got what i needed to know. i mean come on, it's a freaking iPhone, i will get it back at any cost[except money of course])
4. i would continue to check the calls for a day or so, and if i saw that it was going to cost me money, then i would cancel it.
5. i would also call my credit card company and see if they could do anything for me(i don't know if this actually works but, it's a shot)
6. if after a week i didn't find it, i would buy another iPhone or just use some cheap-ass one until iPhone II. i doubt i would really spend that money again, because i would be REALLY pissed off, at both myself and the thief that took it.

So I just called them. They canceled the phone, blahblah. So, my moms mad and everything which is a bummer. Just curious, can they use the iPhone? As an iPod or something. I had music on there too, what if they Restored it? Just curious.

So today, I had gotten my iPhone stolen. I don't really know what to do. My friends said to cancel the phone by calling ATT. But the probelm is, Is there any way to get my phone, or locate who has it? Can I track it down? Can I track it down if there is no SIM? Or do I just cancel my phone and forget it?
If you paid by credit card (especially amex), file a police report, cancel your att account and call amex. They will pay you back every penny!

Shame that people that can't afford iPhones have to be such asses.

By the way, Beneginns (or however you spell it) is a freaking awesome restaurant.

Disagree:(. Have got pieces of plastic bags in my mashed taters on two separate occasions eating there. Haven't been back since the second time. Typical chain corporate resturant anyhow.
Anyways, back on topic. Sounds to me more like "iPhone lost!" than stolen. Never let your baby outta sight! Sucks either way ya look at it though.

This unfortunately happened to me 2 weeks after the release. I was going into a club and knew better than to announce my possession of The Precious by taking it out inside. Sure enough, I saw a coworker of mine and he asked to see it. I took it out like a dummy and I'm sure all of the unsavory fellow just had their mouths watering. Anyway, I got it back, sat for a while and got up to dance twice. An hour later when I reached for my pocket to call the wife.... no iPhone. I'm getting nauseous again just writing about it...:oops::(

Hmm, I wonder if your co-worker is the jerk who called me this past weekend screaming into the phone, "DID YOU FIND THIS PHONE? Then called again screaming to tell me that I was using his stolen iPhone and he wanted it back.

Somewhere after call #2, I never heard from him again; so I called the number that showed up on my caller ID and asked him when did he realize he was dialing the wrong number?

If u report your iPhone stolen, shouldn't there be like a lock on the cell incase someone tries to connect it on their own? I would hope so.

Hey someone broke in my car today and stole my iPhone...I was wondering if there is anything I can do to get it replaced with out having to dish out the full $400 again. I didn't purchase any additional insurance on it after i bought the phone so im not sure if im just SOL.

Alert AT&T (or whoever your carrier is) that your phone has been stolen. They should do something about it.

Sorry to hear about your loss.
