Cheers, that was great since I am getting an android - the S3 (which is why I am so worried). What's the point of a dud phone though if I won't be using it?
Would you recommend trying to fight if I get approached by one/two people? I haven't taken any martial arts classes but I'm reasonably fit, fairly tall (5'10") and very heavy for my height (90kg).
I'm actually paranoid to the point of thinking of creating a zipped-pocket with velcro mechanism that I can just attach to the inside of any coat or jacket I wear, if the coat/jacket doesn't have an inside pocket.
Am I just being ridiculous? I'm planning on buying insurance but I wouldn't trust that in any case, they might just say it was my fault or make up some legal bull****.
Edit: Those saying 'don't put it on show' don't realise that I actually want to use my phone for browsing whilst I'm travelling. Can't grip it hard enough to stop someone taking it+running but I guess I can put it away whenever I get to a train/bus stop.
Don't bother fighting, you'll literally be frozen on the spot with fear, and chances are if they're mugging you they're going to have a knife or similar, you don't wanna risk it.
Also, if you are approached don't drag it out, just hand over your stuff, otherwise they may just attack, as I so very nearly experienced.
Just try to stay on main roads if you are out at dark, if all, and try to be with someone when it's dark.
Also, don't think it will be a regular occurance, be vigilent, but don't go around thinking you'll be mugged all the time, if you are, chances are it will be the last time.
I've been mugged before, so ya know.
