I have never been mugged, or had anything stolen. But if these phones are in short suppy this may very well occur. This is a cell phone, it will be in public view almost always. does anyone have any info on how to stop theft? Tips? Please no "don't let others see it" or "turn the anti theft funtion on(which actually may be valid if you remember that anti theft thingy)", but still none of that.

constructive comments please.:laugh2:

When you purchase the iPhone you will be assigned two bodyguards who will go home with you and stay in your life for as long as your AT&T contract is, so don't worry about it.

A phone has an ID associated with it. If they stole it and began using it, they could be traced down. It's used all the time to find missing people.

The problem is whether or not the police in your area would consider it worthwhile to follow up to arrest the perp, given that there's not much money or fame in it for them.

I would never allow myself to leave an invitation for theft..ie leaving it on a table in a public place...
And if i was ever mugged.. my money is on my running abilities.. no way they would get very far!;)

Our store mgr, who is a bodybuilder, has said that he will be escorting the first few customers to their cars. Didn't thnk it would need to come to this in suburbia!

I know they are not letting anyone make REAL 3rd party apps. But this app for mac laptops would be cool on the iPhone! See the video
It also takes a picture of the person taking it and emails it to your account. LOL!

Try going to a public school in LA carrying an iPhone around. People will be scheming so keep your eyes open! All I can say just don't look like a b!tch because you can get jacked.

iPhonenotify, where do you live and what is your address?

I will make sure nothing happens to your iPhone. Will you be camping out the first day?
