Have you ever lost your phone or had it stolen? (poll results)
Even today, however, smartphone theft happens. Thankfully, there are better and much more robust tools, baked into the very operating system of your device, that can help in such events: Android Device Manager and Find My iPhone, for example. If the results of our yesterday poll asking you to indicate whether/when you've last had your phone stolen/lost don't get you to activate these features, nothing will.
As you can imagine from the above, quite a few of our readers have either lost their phone or had it stolen. A total of about 18% have misplaced one, while a staggering ~28% have fallen victim to theft. That's left us with just over 54% of participants who claim they've never had to deal with such drama.
