It's pretty devastating when your phone gets stolen.  It's not just expensive to replace . . . you also lose everything you haven't backed up, and the thief has access to everything you're logged into.   

 

But are you willing to put your life in DANGER to get it back?  Two-thirds of us say . . . YES.  

 

A new study found 68% of people say they'd be willing to put themselves in, quote, "some amount of danger" to get back a stolen phone.  

 

50% of people say if a thief was holding their phone for a ransom, they'd pay at least $500 to get it back.  33% of people would pay at least $1,000. 

 

The study also found one out of 10 people have had their phone stolen. 

 

44% had their phone stolen because they left it behind in a public place . . . 14% had it stolen out of their car or house . . . and 11% had it stolen out of their pocket or purse. 

 

Restaurants are the most common places where phones are stolen, bars are second, and work is third.
