No, as long as you're cautious...I don't know much about Edinburgh but I live in London and always have expensive phones, and have never once had a phone stolen. Just make sure you don't use it on trains or when you're on your own at night.

just make sure not to flash it about too much and don't text in the street or anything-all the usual...you should be fine with it as a lot of people have expensive phones and nothing happens. Its all about being sensible..
