    My stolen droid is for sale on craigslist!!!

    Hi all! I don't post much, mostly lurk but :heart: my droid and this forum.

    My droid was stolen on Saturday :( Checking my verizon bill I found a call had been placed on the phone. Googling the phone number I found this craigslist ad: Motorola Droid Full flashed to metro pcs :icon_evil:. Could you please flag so he can't sell the phone? I responded with this ad: RE: STOLEN Motorola Droid Full flashed to metro pcs - $300.

    I found out that the number in the ad is the new phone number of my droid! I actually talked to the guy. I've filed a police report, told Asurion, craigslist, Verizon & metropcs. So far, I have been unable to get it disconnected (I'm going again today). It sucks bigtime!!!

    Anyhow, protect your droid! My poor droid is with a stranger now who doesn't care. Any my cases (I had two different ones) are gone. I should get my new (refurbished) droid tomorrow from Asurion but it wont be the same.

    I'm curious - you said you told the police. What was their response? I'd hope they are doing something about this! I'm sure you can prove ownership of the phone... And VZW - why aren't they shutting the guy down? They most definitely would know it's your phone! Befuddled - mikey

    Since I didn't see them take it, police said even if they confront them, the person can just they they bought it off the street. They did take a report though... we'll see. I suspended my VZW account but it is now on MetroPCS. I tried to have MetroPCS disconnect yesterday but they said since I don't have the billing PIN it was set up with (by the thief) that they couldn't do anything. I'm going back today when a Manager is there and the Corporate office is open... I'll let you know what happens.

    ok, I get the different scenarios, but you gotta admit to the huge irony with that and your signature :)

    why wouldn't verizon just shut down the service on the phone?

    is it cause it's been "flashed"?

    also, the police should be doing something about it...

    I was at work when it happened and they actually had it flashed to MetroPCS before I even realized it was gone. I did have mobile defense but just last week had to factory reset because my contacts weren't syncing properly and hadn't reinstalled it yet (but will when I get my "new" droid).

    I though about meeting them but it's a few hours away and I'm not sure if I could get the police to participate :)

    I really hope it can be resolved for you. That is just so sad. Too bad the phone doesn't have a something like those explosive packs they put in money bags that you could trigger.

    If the police wouldn't help me, I know exactly how I would handle this.:icon_evil:

    It would involve a friend, born in 1911 ;).
