Most of us would be lost without our "smart phones" if we loose or have them stolen. Even worse is all the personal information that is on them. Having the right tools in case this situation happens will make for less stress and a better outcome:
A turned back and ooops....David's I Phone disappeared....hmmm....Ah yes...Insurance it's a wonderful thing ! Calls made immediately. the phone is now locked, the information stored deleted and whoever thought they got a shiny new I Phone...got a techie paper weight !
There is nothing that they could do with it...and the converse of that...not much David could do without it !
Insurance is a wonderful thing and there would be no total loss...at least not monetarily...Ooooo the aggravation and frustration of losing what feels like your right arm. It was comforting to know that no information could be stolen....no calls made to another planet...no impersonation of a Realtor (doubting that would happen or be the motivation). Geared for a trip to T Mobile and a replacement we decided to try one more time with a call to the place where it "went missing'....to see if anyone had taken it to the lost and found.
Yaaaah ....the thief discovered that the techie paperweight
was indeed useless and did turn it in waiting for us to claim it.
The moral to this story...always, always carry insurance on your Cell phone....the "right arm" you lose...may be your own !
