    Recently in the news the following story caught some attention:

    I think I would leave this up to the law as far as I would be concerned since my age feeds fear.

    Question is would you track your phone down on your own if stolen and your phone location was known?

    Contacting police is not an option India. They are very lethargic if we say we lost our phone they say somebody lost their Honda city.so leave it they say.if u lose your phone simple save nd buy a new phone.

    Umm but the should be a F.I.R cased in nearest police station. You may also get the same old no with the a amount/balance you have by going to the carrier centre , showing them a copy of F.I.R :)

    I followed my GPS once. The location was saved before my phone died. When I got there, no one was there. Its was weird tracking down the thief. Probably a bad idea. Lol. Its a useful feature, but it can be put into bad use.

    I just said he cannot recover that phone he did not even insured. He was super confident nothing wrong will happen.some pickpocketer stole from his pocket very intelligently. Now he is using his laggy Samsung grand nd he is saving for getting perhaps iPhone 6 or 7.so don't think iPhone is not popular in.India.there are crazy people like him who will save nd buy iPhone.that will soon happen with large size iPhones. So iPhone 6 if launched in India will ve a smash hit.especially youth buy by saving money nd buy this iPhone's.nd also.iPhone's are now thief s target.

    But that will change when everyone save money nd get an iPhone.I think 2000 rs every month saving is possible for any job goers especially it professionals.

    K but commuting daily by car will cost u petrol expenses.that's why I said all those who can't afford 6 lakhs on car now are trying to spend on phone.I think there is nothing wrong to travel by public transport but you have to be on your toes everytime while doing so.

    Yeah now it has very minimum share but we Indians if we save nd buy phones every 2 year's or so anyone can buy iPhone. That's why Apple is expanding networks in tier 2 or 3 cities in India.if normal middle class persons buy iPhone think what about Blackmoney persons.iPhone has low share because of low ad in tv.once Apple can convince you that if you don't own iPhone you are missing something in your life's.then every one will buy one.

    What experience with canvas. The quality of apps compared to os is pathetic like some people say.The thing that is preventing people from buying iPhones is due to small size.if Apple launchphones with 4.7 to 5 inch things will change especially in.India where people do a lot with their phones.

    Saving for 2 years and then after getting an iphone 5 after two years it will be an outdated phone. It has always been seen that apple give such updates to their old phones that make it laggy and you are forced to purchase the next series of it.

    Umm future planning , I cant wait that long for an ios device. They get outdated within 6-12months. Android devices never get updates and are bloat ware.
