iPhones Can Do a Lot ... Including Disappear from a Bathroom Counter in Minutes

In just a three-minute window, a man who had forgotten his cellphone on a bathroom counter at Best Buy in Fox Point lost the $550 phone and the $100 case.

A 29-year-old Milwaukee man was following proper bathroom etiquette, washing his hands after he was done, but forgot his iPhone on the counter. Just three minutes later, it was gone. 

According to the report:

came to to investigate on May 19 just before 8 p.m.

The man told police he had put his cell phone, an iPhone 4S with a white Mopie case, on the sink while he was washing his hands in the men’s room and he accidentally left without it. Only three to four minutes later, he realized he didn’t have his phone and went back to retrieve it, but it was gone. He pinged the phone on and used the GPS to try and find it, discovering it was at a Cricket Wireless store, 8311 W. Brown Deer Rd.

He said his phone is valued at $550 and the case is another $100.

He turned his phone off and plans to report to police if the GPS is picked up anywhere else.
