has anyone ever had their phone stolen and actually get their phone back using gps? i had been tracking it yesterday and they stole it at the ontario mills and ended up in moreno valley . then my phone died and they have yet to turn it back on . ppl are so shitty. luckily i bought insurance through best buy for 20 extra amonth instead of a refurbished phone i get a new one. but i am still hoping to catch the ass holes

Yeah. My husband misplaced his iPhone so I tracked it. I knew someone had it because it kept moving around in a small area.

I work at AT&T and people call about this all the time and honestly it's rare that anyone gets their phone back with GPS because most people don't go to the actual location and get it back, sometimes the police won't assist and they don't know what kind of situation they are walking to alone to get their phone.

Yeah my drag queen friend laid her purse down at a thrift shop and the people took off with it. Her phone was inside and they called the cops. They were following the GPS and the cops found the car, pulled it over, and boom. GPS solved the mystery.

Back when SO just got his iPhone someone stole it from his job. He's the manger of his families gym out in a really bad neighborhood. The guy texted me and told me to tell SO if he wanted his phone to meet him at an alley way with 1G. I called the gym and told him and he went, beat the shit out of the guy, and got his phone back.



So he never used the GPS thing but he got his phone back lol

Who the f**k would ever pay $1000 to get a $400 iPhone back?

Nobody lol but the guy was in a gang so he figured SO would show up anyways to go get his phone and he would have just taken everything he had and kept the phone

It is just so stupid to steal it. they will have to know someone to wipe my phone and then know someone who works for the sprint company because it is a sprint galaxy S2 and it is flagged as stolen. I f**king want to beat the shit out of them lol
