Taking a packing break with my Mosaic Moon coop, so I thought I'd give the full story.

So the phone saga in it's entirety:

I set the phone on the top of my car when I walked out to the garage to meet the Fed Ex guy.

I notice it's not my regular guy (regular guy is a very sweet man that always gets drinks and treats at my house) but shrug eh, atleast the boxes are here.

"You want me to load them in the garage?"

"Yes, please"

Then I start hauling them in. After the last box is in the house I go out to sign for them. He smiles, tells me have a nice day and goes back to his truck parked on my street.

I go in and like a kid on Christmas start unpacking boxes. I get unloaded till there is just one box left (I remember that because I though "Uh, you'd know the Lourve would be in the last box and that's the one I want to see!") before I realize I left my phone on the car in the garage.

I'd say.... eh.... a max of 7 minutes has gone by when I realize this. The phone is not on my car.

I tear my house up looking. Jiggle the bags to see if maybe I dropped it while unpacking. Nope.

So I think "AH HA! I'll use my "Mobile Me" account and track it down! It's saved me before when I lost my phone once, surely I can find it there!"

NOPE - Guess why. The locator for this device has been turned off.

"Huh, I don't even know how to do that. What?"

So I email a text to my husband "Call my phone Please."

Emailed back "It goes straight to voicemail, where are you?"

OHHHH NOOOOOO!

This is when I know he took it. Because I never ever ever ever ever ever turn my phone off. Ever. Period. Vibrate - sometimes.... Off - NEVER!

So now, within 15 minutes of him leaving my house at 9:50 am my phone is:

gone;
locked;
turned off; and
locator turned off.

No one else has been to my house and I closed the garage right after he left.

Ok, jury... what says you? LOL

Here's the definition of irony:

Fed Ex is delivering my insurance replacement iPhone 4S tomorrow. ROTF

Damon called the main office to tell them what happened. She said "Oh my!" and then they called him to ask him if he took my phone. ROTF

Damon said "Really? You're going to ask him that? Really?"

Damon asked where our regular guys was today. They said he got a better job and has moved on from Fed Ex. This guy has been on the job for 2 weeks now. They plan to interview him about the incident after his shift today.

Damon told them he realizes that he'll never admit to taking the phone, and that we'll never see that phone again, but if he did this on the second week of work, you'll be hearing more complaints about him soon.

He also said that he is not to deliver one more thing to our house. Find another delivery man for our house.

So what do you think?

Honest truth here: had he not locked the phone and turned it off and turned off the locator, I'd still be looking for it. I'm that kind of person. It's like me to lose my phone - or leave it laying somewhere I forgot about. But when I saw that he had turned off the locator - I knew.

If this doesn't make him lose his job, I'm sure he'll do something to have that happen. That's nuts.

Yes, But there are people who doctor those things all the time. That's what the police said. They call it 'hotwiring' them shrug but apparently there are people you can go to to 'unlock' a phone. I don't know anything about that. But if he ever tried to register it when activating it to a phone number - it would be caught then.

Wow, glad you had insurance but how scary. I'm curious if FedEx will have him deliver to your house.

That smiley is perfect!

I just can't believe this! People are just incredible! I'm glad that you're getting a new one tomorrow. Are you lost without it now though? I don't know what I'd do without my calendar on my phone. Yikes!
