If I Meet A Mobile Thief...

Its a strange thought, but popped up in my mind little earlier from now. If I meet an educated mobile thief, what would I ask him? Well, my first question would not be about his then conditions, which had provoked him to do the theft. But for sure, I would ask him why he had not left the SIM card for it’s owner’s sake. The thief knew that any how he would be switching it off later on. Still why he could not have removed it from the piece!!! This would be my first question… :):)….

Loosing the mobile…informing about it to the call center guys…blocking the SIM…buying new mobile…taking the same number again… huhhh, and now the most irritating task I guess – getting all his contacts back and feeding them again… :(…:( Past is past, but future is also dearly effected for that person with all these kind of doings!!!

PS: I had written this post before two months from now, if I remember it correctly. I’m not sure whether it was irony or not, but with in the next two days after writing this, my two close and important persons’ mobiles had been stolen…:(…now, what would you call this? I would say, my imaginations are very powerful…:)...:)

Hi Prams...

A very good thought from you.
Nice question has been arrived from your mind. Really its a verry irritating situation and very effected task to get mobile numbers and sending our number to our friends and asking them to store it. Some times friends call to old number and they may miss us even in a serious condition too.

Anyhow these thieves don't use the number from the stolen mobile. Yes atleast it would be nice to leave the simcard for the owners sake. I dont know whether thieves thought about this or not, but I guess they would not be having time to think and leave the sim. Because they might be thinking that they would get cought by the owner then. hahah

I dont know it would be wonder for you or not, from a long time I was maintaining an excell sheet to store the phone numbers and mail ids etc stuff in it for a quick reference, and ofcourse they will be very well useful when we lost mobile phone with sim. I have suggested about this to some of my friends. Some of them too maintaining the same.

One thing I have found from my excell sheet is, there are N number of phone numbers with me (ofcourse atleast 3 to 4 numbers of a person, if he changes, even including you).

Actually my motto behind this was to count howmany numbers that persons are changing. But I have found somany usefull thing after maintaining excell sheet.

It is not only the good deed, but also a good lesson to the mobile owners and my suggession to mobile owners is that to maintain a protected excell sheet or similar to this.

Hope this will be very useful to all the persons... :)

Hi Prams..

For your Information...

I dont know whether you have understood about the phrase "Protected Excell sheet" from the above comment or not..

It is nothing but Password protected sheet. Such that nobody will be able to access it ... hahahah :)

Be free
Keep smiling... :)

Hi Pramoda...

Even I too didnt lost even single mobile till now. I too didnt know the pain. But just given thought a while when somany of my frns saying that they their mobile have been lost.

Later I have given a thought for a remedy of not to loose numbers. So I planned like said in before post.

If you want I can give you your old numbers. hahaha :)

Jack said...

Pramoda,

I fully agree with you on Be yourself post. Mobile thieves have no time to open it and leave SIM card. They have no sense of civility.

Take care

anupama said...

dear pramoda,
nice post n enjoyed.
the end-could be coincedence!
one has to be more careful with mobiles;better than teaching the thief the values.:)

Tranquility said...

If only thieves had that much sense, they wouldn't be thieves! Thought provoking! If I could catch a thief red handed I'd consider calling out and telling him "Hey atleast leave the wallet and handset behind!!" :D

Being Pramoda... said...

hi Tranquility,

:) Thanks for the comment and yeah, u r correct ..

and ))"Hey atleast leave the wallet and handset behind!!" :D


hehe ...

hemanth said...

Professional mobile thieves may do it. :D lol. I would do if I am there to do such thing haha... But all are not like me, so I take a back up of all my contacts regularly, as anywayz one can't stop theft 100%.

Being Pramoda... said...

hi hemanth,

ummm..professional thieves can do it ..yeah, its good that u take ur contacts back up time to time.

Thank YOu!
