    I am sending a Pixi to my s.o. in Peru. it may get stolen. it would be nice if it didn't.

    People uglify their bikes Make - Volume 11

    How can I uglify the Pre and make it believable. Looking like a dumbphone, an old phone, anything.

    they couldn't give away those old brown zunes. and I'm sure you can think of something equally undesirable to put your phone in.

    On topic. I don't have a clue. I wouldn't try painting it though..

    stolen at customs? Can't you just hide it in an everyday thing.. Like a shirt or box of condoms?

    Put a Nokia sticker on the back, over the palm logo. Touchstone will still work.

    I was thinking.. you could grab like 3 screen protectors, put them on and scuff the hell out of them with some sandpaper.

    Should I worry about it being stolen in customs???
    BTW I was going to mail USPS but is a service like FedEx a better idea Re:customs?

    I'd keep it in my pocket on the plane and through customs. Most people carry phones.

    Uglifying is a good idea for bikes, where you have to leave them locked up in public for hours at a time and it takes a lot of effort to cut through chains/locks. But if someone's able and willing to steal your phone, they'll just take it; it doesn't matter how "ugly" it looks.

    Just send it with insurance and require signature on delivery! :-)

    Yep, I've always carried my phone on the plane and through customs. Just remember, going through customs, you aren't allowed to use it, until you are cleared.

    I had a ti 82 calculator stolen in HS. I uglified the next one by painting it green then scratching off alot of the paint. I also used a hot knife to inscribe my name on it.


    you could always try messing up the back cover, you know it's replaceable but a thief will not.
