    I'm so sorry you had to undergo that mess Slave4u...that is just bizarre!

    It sounds crazy, but I lived at 1350 Charnelton at the apt complex right across from the old library for 3 years, smack in the middle of the block right where you got hit, and never had anything remotely like that happen. Mind you, I was aware how ghetto that area was, my old apt probably still has nicks on the floorboards from when I used to shoot at the rats/mice or whatever they were with a pellet gun

    With your luck, I'd just advise you to stay on your side of I-5, Charnelton is nothing compared to my old apt in Springfield, those people would break your legs for a six-pack of PBR

    Just be glad your O.K.

    Wow - that sucks. Don't you wish you could have a little instantaneous sidewalk justice? At least you weren't hurt, which is all that matters in the larger context after all.

    Your story reminded me of similar one regarding the iPhone that was posted here. Even if you have the ability to track your phone, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the smart thing to do!

    There's an app for that.

    Because if they did suggest it then he'd have reason to be upset with them when they told him he was responsible for all the international calls made on his phone since it wasn't reported stolen.

    Next time you go to score meth leave your Pre at home.

    Glad you are OK and nothing worse happened. Did they get your wallet and other stuff too?

    Muggings are considered violent crimes in most areas. I would ask the investigator if they plan on using the palm pre's location service to find the mugger. Most muggers are not that bright, he probably has it in his underwear drawer. It would not be the first time stolen phone/GPS are used to find a lead in the case.
    Thank you

    So sorry to hear about that man.

    I have a script installed on my phone that I can use to get its location on demand -- just in case (God forbid) something like this happens. I remote login, run the script and it sends me an email with an Google Maps link. I pity the fool that tries to steal from me.

    Sorry to hear about your mugging. Hopefully you will be able to recover your Pre at some point.

    This post got me wondering about Sprint Family Locator. I am new to Sprint with the Pre. I went into my web account and looked around at the options. I'm wondering if you want to do the SFL trial, is there anything you have to do on the phone? If something unfortunate like this were to happen, or if I were to simply misplace my Pre, could I log into my Sprint account and begin the trial and locate my phone? Or would I need to do it in advance because of some step that must be taken on the phone?

    Thanks for any insight!

    Just click the trial button and everything else will follow (sfl)... Nothing needs to be done to the phone.

    Sorry bout your lost Pre!

    I'm not sure if this was an option for you, but you can track your phone if its on if you sign up for sprint family locator. it maybe could have helped the cops find the bad guys!

    google Sprint family locator
