    I absolutely love DROID DOES stories like this....Droid LoJack. Nice.

    Good thing they didn't turn the phone off.

    That's about as good of an ending as you can have. Glad you got everything back (minus the busted glass). I'm going to take a more serious look at the Latitude app now!

    My wife refuses to use lattitude because she thinks im tracking her...oh well. My phone would be easy to find...

    Note to thief. If you steal anything electronic device take the damn battery out. Cant tell you how many stories i hear of idiots stealing phones and leaving them running or using them.

    We figured that the thieves would have eventually turned the cell phone off. I think they just didn't think that we would begin tracking them as soon as they took off and were busy trying to get away and put as much distance between us and them. The beauty of this story is that the first responders to the incident were the victims (us) and we used tools that were immediately available at our disposal.

    We should all be careful in these kind of threads, not to educate the criminals ....
