Much more is lost when phone stolen

To the editor:

Lately, with our economy as it is, a family member had to give up their family dog as they just couldn’t afford the costs of having a pet.

My girlfriend and I were out shopping at a couple local stores and she misplaced her phone in one of two stores. The problem isn’t the fact that she had to get a new phone—she had an old phone at home she switched to—but the fact that all of her pictures and videos of the dog were on the phone.

As we all know, our phones, for some of us, are our cameras.

The other problem is that people find them and they must keep them or use them for paperweights. I dont’t believe you can hook up a lost or stolen phone so I wonder why people don’t just give them to the cashier or drop them at a major provider to find their way home?

I guess the other lessons are: Don’t set your phone down and back up your pictures and videos from your phone. Just sad to see when someone gives and gives and looses out.
