Phone never lying around. Always in my pocket. Gun in face. Handover phone.

I woke up once after a 'Hangover' type evening .... the phone was gone.

Unsure what happened to it though - left in the Uber ? Stolen ? Given away? Zero recollection

Smartphone, lost one iPhone 5c 32gb in blue, to this day it's still on my icloud holding on to a little hope that it will one day come online, still love it.
iPhone 6, 2 years ago fought for it when 2 guys approached to rob me, shattered screen and on.

Normal phone, a few stolen, but the one that hit hard me was my Nokia 1100

I was dropping the kids off at the pool in the cinema at Monte Casino, left it on the toilet paper holder. I went back like 30 seconds after washing my hands and it was gone.

So far, no phone of any type lost on me. But yes, I tend to keep my phone in my pocket, and not anywhere else (expect my hands, of course)

I had my Samsung U910 stolen by a darn bustard in 2008, other than that I've had my MacBook Pro and iPad also stolen in 2013 (remote jamming)
Now I ensure to check the car is locked before I walk away.
Never had another phone/device stolen, touch wood. Everything is insured as well, in case I break it or it gets removed by nice gentlemen with guns and/or knives.

Sandton city food court. There were cameras there. I contacted security and asked to see the footage. They refused

This thread title is offensive.

Please change stolen to expropriated.

No, but my wife had hers stolen at PickNPay Walmer Park about 6 weeks ago. They wouldn’t let her view the cctv tales, only police. Reported it to Walmer SAPS. End of story.

How do you get your phone stolen in a supermarket?

I know where my phone is at all the time.

In joburg this is not even out of the ordinary anymore. Had lost about 4 in joburg altogether, police are useless with these types of robberies.
