You can lock it. 99% of phone thieves probably won't bother doing anything with it at that point.

>Why didn’t he turn the phone off? My theory is that he simply didn’t know how to. Maybe he wasn’t familiar with the new power button placement on the 6 and 6 Plus.

Jesus Christ you would think that a phone thief would at least know how to turn a phone off

>The thief claimed he was at the bar when he came across the phone. I don’t remember his exact words, but he says he was going to wait by his car for a minute, hoping someone would come and find it.

And maybe he genuinely was going to return it, so kept it on

That's what I did with an iPhone I found once. The only reason I'd been able to locate the user was because of a notification on his lock screen. Would've been a lost cause otherwise, apart from taking it to the network store.

I got root, installed an app that forces data and gps and survives a factory wipe or even reinstalling a rom.
If I mark it stolen my friend will get a mail and text with gps location and other info.
Can remotely locate, lock and wipe.

in lost mode it activates gps even if its disabled and data is not needed to locate a phone with gps.

>Put phone down on a bench
>To skate

I don't.. even. If you're going to have to take it out of your pocket to do anything, hand it to a friend who isn't skating or don't at all.
Everytime I stand up I always tap each of my pockets to make sure everything is there, I call it the triple tap.

Even Awkward Zombie made a comic about how when something goes missing you feel it's lost simply because it's existence isn't touching you and a lot of people agree. Forgot what they call this though.
