  • Thieves Steal 2,000,000 of iPhones in Belgium


    In a daring heist, thieves took anywhere from 3,000 to 4,000 iPhones from a warehouse in Belgium, with a street value of up to 2 million euro, or $3 million US. The robbers may be foiled, however: wireless carrier Mobistar, for whom the phones were intended, say they have a list of all the serial numbers and that they will block the phones from accessing their network.

    The thieves climbed a fire ladder to the roof of a warehouse owned by CEVA Logistics, a Netherlands-based logistics company in Willebroek, Belgium. They then cut a hole in the roof of the large building directly above where the iPhones were located. Reports in the De Standaard newspaper suggested the thieves knew about iPhone delivery and storage location details, and that the robbery may have been an inside job.

    Mobistar, which has had problems keeping the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS in stock, is reportedly in an urgent search for more devices before inventory runs low. With the holiday season coming, the breakin could prove costly to the carrier's business. Mobistar has prepared for a large number of devices coming onto the black market by blocking them from accessing the Mobistar network. However, the strong likelihood is that these phones will be unlocked before they are sold.

    Police say they have no leads.

      That's pretty crazy! A few months ago people burglarized the Marlton Apple by me and stole 14 iPhones, 23 MacBook Pros, 9 iPod Touches in 31 seconds flat.

      No, I don't think you're a 5 y/o. A 5 year-old would be excused for acting the way you did. I'd have to guess you're somewhere in your mid-teens judging by the way you attacked that guy without understanding what was being pointed out, and the fact you were quick to use an old e-cliche like "FAIL" shows me you're very young either physically, or mentally. I don't need to defend myself for calling you out on your mistake and at your ignorance for attacking another forum member like a cyber-school bully. It's you who need to defend yourself for such a-hole-ish behavior like that, and you, as a member in this community, should show others the same respect you wish to be shown in return. You still haven't apologized to that individual for your ahole comments, and that's what's most surprising now since the mistake was fully explained to you. :/

      Thank you. It would've ended this a lot sooner had you done this originally and told me. In the future don't attack other members like that. You'll get respect from others by showing it and being tactful in the way you talk to someone. Everyone makes mistakes, the OP even corrected his when that guy brought it to his attention, and he didn't need to be textually assaulted in such a pre-pubescant manner for trying to help everyone be crystal clear on what happened.

      As far as everyone else trying to chime in on this discussion, it's over, and has been handled by the two of us involved. Find another thread to throw your two cents in. Mods included. You weren't here to correct this issue when it started, so take the authority attitude somewhere else. This issue is resolved.

      Guys,
      My 2 cents. MMI is an absolutely huge community!
      We have members from all parts of the world, different languages, cultures, backgrounds, and ages.
      Absolutely there is going to be conflict, especially in an open forum where it is quite easy to let your emotions take control.
      I know when I see an issue that needs addressed, I personally message the person and try to resolve it offline.
      Remember, we do have 50 pm's!
      This allows the offender to make amends, save face, and will also form a good relationship between the two parties, and support mutual respect.

      This also prevents flame wars that result from hurt feelings, pride, and will also generate more traffic and knowledge to the site if we show we respect the individual and have intelligent conversations, and support an environment that is not intimidating to anyone that makes a mistake. We all make them.

      I suggest we let this go, perhaps when issues arrive follow the statements above, and continue modding!
