transformed from being a luxury to a bare necessity. Cell phones have
become so common and theft also has risen dramatically over the past 2
Major locations where theft occurs are railway stations, bus
stops, traffic signals, pathways Motorists who use their mobile when
driving might not only be risking their lives but also be a potential
target for the culprits. Of late there have been too many incidences of
bikers being robbed on roadways.
Insurance Cos had stopped offering Mobile Theft Insurance due to a
large number of false claims.
When you loose your mobile phone, more than anything it’s the personal
information that really matters.
