Stolen iPhone Epidemic? This Is What You Do!



Sometimes, bohemians lose things. In Las Vegas, for a work-related conference last week, I lost my arm, meaning my iPhone. And I LOVE my iPhone. I also love my contacts, my apps arranged just the way I like them, my notes, and all the stuff that keeps me centered when traveling. The bad news is there is an epidemic of stolen iPhones. According to a recent issue of MacLife Magazine, questions about stolen devices are among the most frequently received by their editors. The good news is there is tons you can do about it, according to their article on this topic. Here's the gist:
1. Store the following in a safe place: serial number (found in settings), color and model, along with notes on any identifying dings or scratches. 

2. Open a free iCloud account so that you can enable "Find My Phone." Contrary to popular belief, it was recently able to track the precise apartment where a phone was located in a complex with over sixty units. 

3. IMPORTANT: Put a lock on your phone by going to settings>>passcode lock. Also activate autolock to deny robbers a chance to keep trying combinations before your phone will clam up and erase all data. 

4. Also go to settings>>general>>restrictions to check the box "don't allow changes." This will prevent the thief from blocking the power of your "Find My Phone" feature. 

When you lose your phone, go to the police with the info recovered using FMP, which you retrieve from any device using your Apple ID. You may also want to send a message to the device to give crooks a chance to do the right thing, or wipe it out completely. Some carriers can block the device from reactivation. But the best thing about all of this is that even if you are unable to recover your device, you'll be able to reload your new phone with all the things that made the other one so special.
