Protect Your Bubble takes a look at some simple things consumers can do to protect themselves against theft.
ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) December 16, 2012
Apple’s iPhone 5 is one of the hottest gadgets on the market right now. And when something is that popular and valuable, it creates a perfect target for criminals. According to the New York Post, Apple device theft is up 55 percent in New York City over last year. Protect Your Bubble takes a look at some simple things consumers can do to protect themselves against theft.
1. Hold onto device at all times – Most people wouldn’t leave $650 on the table at a coffee shop while they work on their laptop, right? The same concept should apply to one’s phone. Electronics were the single most stolen property type, surpassing even hard currency as of Dec. 2011, according to the NYPD.
2. Keep it out of sight – Don’t keep your phone in eye shot in public. Storing it in one’s back pocket will likely attract attention and the phone can easily be swiped. The less people that see the phone while out in public, the better the odds are of not ending up as a victim.
3. Be smart and aware of those around – It’s important to stay alert and know who’s around you. Awareness is a great way to prevent a criminal from catching you off guard.
4. Don’t procrastinate on insurance- Americans lost about $30 billion worth of mobile phones in 2011 (USA Today). It’s imperative to insure the iPhone 5. ProtectYourBubble.com offers 24-hour replacement for stolen, lost or damaged phones.
Overall, the iPhone 5 truly is a remarkable device and a must-have for techies or anyone who is due for an upgrade. While carrier subsidies offer heavy discounts, the cost of replacing the phone if lost, stolen or damaged is upwards of $650 without the subsidy. That’s why iPhone 5 insurance is so important. ProtectYourBubble.com offers iPhone insurance and coverage includes loss, theft, accidents and damage and provides replacement devices in 24 hours. For more information, visit ProtectYourBubble.com.
