If these phones are registered properly then they can't be used by anyone else. They cost about $10 used on Ebay. Go get another one and stop walking around at 1AM by yourself - it is asking for trouble. When will people learn that at night evil predators come out of the trees or fall from the sky. It is not safe to walk around as an open book with your expensive possessions in full view for these predators to rob you. Get some common sense or you'll continue to be victimized. It's really the way the world works unfortunately. I know it's a rude awakening to hear this but someone needs to deliver the bad news especially when people refuse to take precautions and protect themselves :-(
