Re: Smartphone safety in the Midwest In the city it seems it is everyone for themselves. A smart phone will bring good money depending on popularity, just check craigslist in your area. Country folk are somewhat more honest and more likely to seek and find the phone's true owner. This is not a slam on city folk, just that with the homelessness and unemployment easy money is easy. But you will find honest folk no matter where you are at. Just hope your phone is found by one should you happen to lose it.
Smartphone safety in the Midwest Looks like the safest place to have a smartphone in the US is in the Midwest. Then again, this infographic deals with only the "top cities," so it's possible phones are lost in the heartland as well, just not with the vigor of the East and West.
Possible Solution? Fortunately iPhone users have a free app that can assist them in recovering their lost iPhones called "Find my iPhone". Blackberry and Android-based phones have similar apps. If you can get to a computer or another cell phone, and your phone is not turned off, you may be able to use the app to track down your phone.
The police may also be able to use GPS tracking to recover your phone.
Europe is probably not far behind Nice graphic. If you did a similar one for Europe, Barcelona would probably be high up there for smart phone thefts. It's sufficiently common here, apparently, that there's even a "Robbed in Barcelona" website.
Numerous Catalans have warned me to hang onto my iPhone when I've placed it on the table at a cafe. Fortunately, it hasn't wandered off.
The Mobile World Congress will be here next month. And a friend who is working there says security is extremely tight because, in the past, thieves have bought event passes to get better access to the latest gadgetry.
Re: Good Infographic Absent-mindedness, and the fact that they're always out, always in our hands. That makes them more likely to be lost, or stolen. I have a friend who has left his iPhone in the back of taxi cabs more times than he'd like to admit.
