Gadget insurance company, Protect Your Bubble, has created an infographic to show which cities are the worst for smartphone loss and theft.

Your smartphone is most likely to disappear in Philadelphia, followed by Seattle and Oakland.

Notably, phone theft makes up 40% of all robberies in New York City and iPhones account for 70% of cell phones stolen on public transportation.

Given how small some of these cities are, the results are, to say the least, shocking.

Are you a fucking idiot? There are barely any states highlighted on this map. The president won with half the vote. Get the fuck off this thread you ignorant piece of shit.

True, sir, very true. obama gives away phones, but they are prolly only android. so then his 'fans' steal an iPhone

9/25 (36%) of the states that obama won are highlighted. 0% of the states that Romney won. I guess all of those racists in the Romney states just don't steal phones.

Romney states just don't steal phones. "Like his 5 point plan nobody nows about" or "The book of Woman names" - Give me a break
