    #1- I wonder if people are talking on their phone or showing that they have a phone? That's the only way thieves know you have a phone.
    #2 - Didn't the City Counc. pass an ordinance that effected who bought cell phones? Don't the serial numbers have to be registered.
    #3 - why are these phones considered so valuable? Is there a big resell market for them? Is there an international ring of cell phone buyers?
    #4 - maybe if the manufacturers wouldn't put such a high price ($1000!!!! outragious) on the phones, they wouldn't be so valuable. Seems that phones are outpacing luxury designer goods in the pricing department.

  • "1- I wonder if people are talking on their phone or showing that they have a phone? That's the only way thieves know you have a phone"

    Its pretty safe to say everyone has a phone.

    They should have some statistics on which phones are being stolen.

  • Well I know for a fact that flip phones are UNWANTED. Probably the Samsung and Iphones.
