Recovered Android phone thanks to Prey

  • Location: San José, Costa Rica.
  • Date Stolen: March 9, 2012
  • Date Recovered: March 16, 2012
  • Theft: Two guys with guns.
  • Missing items: Android phone
  • Police reaction: They asked for the software!
  • Time it took for first report to arrive: 6 hours.
  • Once received, time it took for police to recover it: Really fast.
  • Final thoughts: Surprised!

Full story below:

Around 7:00pm two guys with guns in a motorcycle, robbed my phone... As soon as I get home I actived prey in the website and nothing happened... Next day when I checked my email there were 6 Prey reports available and also the configured backup number to receive an SMS with the SIM the guys put on my phone. I went with all the data to the police (and to be fair, I wasn't really hopeful about recovering my phone, I just did hoping no one else would get robbed by these guys again). 7 days after that, I received a call from the policeman assigned to my case who told me they have my phone and I could get it back whenever I wanted. I was amazed, I never expected to recover it.

Summarizing, you guys and Prey rock!
