    Great. But this doesn't help if you take a photo of it and then leave your camera phone in the taxi, does it?

    Basically people are using hindsight to great effect to tell OP how he could've recovered his phone (in ways which actually don't work.) With hindsight I'm pretty sure he'd just sellotape his phone to his forehead.

    So anyway, OP... Good luck.

    If you can think to remember to get a receipt surel you can think to check your pockets and glance at the back seat. I guess the drivers think its windfall time when they earn several days takings on an iPhone!

    Is IMEI phone blocking supported in HK? If so OP can contact their carrier and have the phone blocked assuming they know the IMEI number. Should be on the box the phone came in when bought.

    Does that work worldwide? No idea if it is supported here?

    Some of you guys should get this: Bluetooth Smart Key Fob

    This smart key fob works with most any Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to manage calls and alert you if your phone or keys are left behind. It offers the following functions: wirelessly connects to your phone and answers incoming calls with the push of a button within a range of 30 feet, notifies you when you are separated from your phone or any object to which the key fob is attached, works as a powerful, compact speakerphone while driving or anywhere you go, and acts as an one-touch emergency dialer.

    Not sure, assuming the phone is lost forever the OP can at least have it blocked making it useless to the 'new' owner as a phone.

    I'd like to suggest a place where users could safely keep their iPhones but I'm on probation apparently....

    Ha...if it tried to take a pic I would have noticed it was gone immediately and done the run down the road like audiot.

    No, IMEI blocking is not supported in HK. Of course if it was it would help although wouldn't prevent phones going across the border.
