Instant Regret:

I was shopping in a store and, out of nowhere, someone pushed me aside and rushed into the store. Not only then I realized my phone was missing, but I also noticed those who rushed in were thieves!

They robbed the store and bolted off, leaving me with no phone. I immediately called my sister-in-law and told her to activate Prey to start tracking my mobile.

We started getting locations and we also activated Prey’s actions. Ringed quite a few alarms and sent the thieves some messages; which may have panicked them a bit, because they ended up returning it to the store!

And thus, I got my phone back 🙂 Thanks!
