The Best Location in the US to Get Free iPhones and Android Phones?
According to a new report on the industry of mobile phones or cell phones, a lot of Americans lose $30 billion worth of technology devices in 2011. That is a lot of waste when you think about it. That is good news for those who want free cell phones or free iPhones and other electronic gadgets. Apparently Philadelphia is the place to be if you want to get free gadgets. It will appear that people in that part of the US are a bunch of hotheads with too much money on their hands.
People from San Francisco and New York are just as bad. A lot of people might actually lose their cell phones in taxis, trains, buses and other locations. Can you imagine finding a brand-new iPhone and a public toilet? Will you really want to give it back? That will be so much fun trying to make the decision of keeping it, selling it or given it back in the hope that you get a ward of cash for your honesty. That said, apparently some of the phones were not just forgotten but they were stolen. If you live in a very bad neighborhood, you will likely lose your phone to some lazy idiot who thinks he has the right to all the gadgets you’ve worked to purchase.
The report also states that a lot of people lose their iPhones, Blackberrys and Android phones at night. You just wonder what they might have been up to. Some of them might be getting drunk in a not so reputable bar and decide to hook up with some dodgy stranger.
Did you know that the Apple IOS has an application that can help you locate your iPhone? Apple wants you to be able to find your device and keep spending your money with them. That is why they came up with the find my iPhone application. The application is not only for stolen iPhones but also for those who might have misplaced their appliance. You can place a call to the devices so that it will emit a sound to help you locate it. The application can allow you to reset your iPhone and wipe out sensitive information. Apple is not the only one to offer this type of mechanism. If you have an Android phone, you can get the same level of protection.
It is true that you can get used iPhones or cell phones on sites like eBay and craigslist. That said if the deal is too good to be true, you will likely be buying a stolen or missing device. You will ultimately become contributing to making the world a more dangerous place. That said, everyone wants to get a free iPhone and stolen iPhones are good for business no matter how you look at it.
By the way, you need to remember that someone who is willing to sell a stolen electronic device will likely also try to rob you when you finally go to pick up your purchased goods. You can probably go with a shotgun just in case.
