    So my iphone situation has been resolved I was talking with one of the managers from sixflags and I provided the evidence that I had and a few days later I received a call that my phone was not recovered but the person who took it was caught and so now sixflags is replacing my phone and hooking me up with a free season pass! As for the guy who stole it he's fired and has a 2 week period to come up with the money and pay back sixflags or he faces jail time. So overall I'm happy with the conclusion and I can't complain now I'm just exited to know that I'm getting my iphone soon
    Good to hear! I was looking at this thread just last night wondering how this worked out with you.

    That's awesome that Six Flags is doing that. That's great customer service. A lot of other companies could learn a thing or two from them.

    That's incredibly nice of them. Glad it worked out. So many times you hear negative stories about stuff like that happening and people getting screwed. Nice to hear a positive story once in a while!

    What did he did with the phone>? And for some reason I dont believe this. Dont sound right. IF you lose your phone there, how do 6 flags know a worker took it unless he was using it or showing people it at work but even then how do they know it was his phone or not. Come on, tell the truth dude. Story is fishy

    There are a bunch of ways they could have found that the employee took it. They do have cameras watching the park. It could have been on camera. This thread has been going for weeks. I really don't think the op would drag a lie out this long. I could be wrong, but sometimes you have to take people at their word.

    Find. My. iPhone.

    I have to assume people that steal iPhones, don't know about it.

    It's simple i tracked down the phone to the guys address using the find my iphone app provided pictures of the phones location and all sixflags had to do was use that address to look up the information plus they confronted him and the guy admitted to taking the phone and like one of the other members mentioned earlier why would I drag out a lie for this long especially if I have no personal gain in writing this out

    One thing I still want to know but don't have the answer to is the condition of the phone i was told that the phone was later tossed in the trash by the guy who stole it but I wonder why... was it because the screen was broken or he couldn't unlock the phone. I personally feel that he couldn't figure out how to unlock it simply because if the screen was cracked there would've been no reason for him to take it with him... who knows but at this point it's irrelevant I guess.

    People do, someone actually reached into my purse and stole mine. My brothers was stolen from next to him on his table at dinner one night. My friend K. had someone walk by and steal hers also from the table. It is surprisingly common. And theyoften either wipe and keep them for themselves or wipe and sell them.

    Just so long as you have your money or new phone now. I would not be willing to wait too much longer. I am pretty sure the person that stole mine just wiped it and sold it.

    Wow! I always put my phone on the table when I'm out to eat! Maybe I'll stop doing that. Can't believe someone would have the balls to grab it right from the table!

    Yea I think he was shocked too. Someone was DEFINITELY watching them because when his friend turned his head to talk to someone that's when they think the guy grabbed it.

    technically, is this phone lost? or is it stolen? If the police get involved, how would it play out? Do they follow the whole "finders keepers, losers weepers" method? I think the guy that found and kept the phone shouldn't be viewed as stealing it but rather just the scum bag a hole with no morals that didn't turn it in when he "found" it.
    It also may depend on the employee's job contract. My nephew worked as a manager at a large car rental agency. If an employee found an item worth over a certain amount and did not turn it in and was caught, it was in their contract that it was theft and they were terminated immediately. Might not have any credence with law enforcement, but just saying.

    Best of luck with it, hope it turns out OK.

    PS - hope it does not take you as long as some of us to get a 4s.... I finally was ready to order or pick up (had to wait on a deposit to clear) and now, none of our VZ stores locally have any (they got 25 last week and those were gone in like 45 minutes) and not even expecting any but will take order. No other electronic store or kiosk has any, as far out as 90 miles to Dallas, nowhere. And online, someone said while it's saying "Will ship on 11-11", that is "estimated ship date". So it could be months.

    Doesn't give you address as in house # BUT OMG what a perfect picture on the map real view!!! My husband was at our store and thought he lost his iphone. I found it using the find my iphone app and wow. It was clear as day that it was right at the store. He had actually just left it in the car. It's pretty darn accurate.

    That's where google maps comes in I used the street view feature on google maps and just matched up the satellite view with the house and I could read both the number on the house and the number on the curve And as another person mentioned the app is extremely accurate
