A Story Of Revenge: One of the Luckiest EVO Owners Ever

XDA senior member wutafobbb posted a very nice story in the EVO 4G General forums about his stolen HTC EVO. He seems to be one of the luckiest EVO owners ever, as he describes it himself. A short fragment of the story:

Background:
I was waiting for the Evo, ever since it was announced. I got it on my lunch break during work (Which turned out to be 2 hours because of the sprint servers). I loved it.

Situation:
I was playing basketball when someone must have taken it out of my bag (I think it was right on top and possibly visible). I realized it probably 15-20 minutes after it was gone. I confronted the group of people and told them that I just wanted my phone back. Didn’t care if they stole it, I wouldn’t report it, just wanted it back. They all denied it.

I went home, more pissed than I’ve been in a while. I called sprint and told them my story. They said unless I had insurance (Which I’m getting in the future BTW), I was SOL. I told them to cancel my service, and I’ll go back to t-mobile.

A day went by, and I started checking Craigslist to see if anything popped up. Well something did pop up. I called the people, and asked if they had the box and everything. They said they just got the actual phone for a gift. I contemplated arranging a meet up with my friend and them, and have some bats and golf clubs with me, but I decided I didn’t wanna get arrested, or sued, or leave myself legally liable in any way. So I went to the police station…

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
