Poll: How do you secure your mobile phone?

  Chronos the 2nd 26 Nov 12

I had a phone with that finger swipe routine but that only worked when it felt like it. Or if you had dad a bacon roll or something greasy then my finger might not describe the unlock shape very precisely.

I keep it in my trouser pocket.

I thought that this would be asking about things like Prey and Findmyphone.

At £25 a pop and a £15 PAYG sim its not worth the hassle. I also use the 'leave it on my desk' mode as we are not allowed mobile phones in my laboratory.

I have a PAYG mobile and carry it in case of an emergency. Outside of that, I don't switch it on. If anyone wants to contact me, then they can use the landline or email me.

I'm afraid to admit that I have never locked a phone, or used any other security measures.

  Quickbeam 26 Nov 12

I'm surprised that only 12% are admitting that it's too much bother to bother with bothersome procedures that usually result in a missed call.

  Woolwell 26 Nov 12

Quickbeam - with my phone you don't have to use the security features to access an incoming call so you don't miss it unless you are slow getting your phone out of your pocket as I am from time to time.

I'm the same as Graphicool1. Except that I carry mine only in my car and fully charged through the "cigar lighter" I wonder if there really is anybody these days who lights their cigars from such a device.

The cigar lighter is now known as the auxiliary power socket. But it can also still be used for lighting one's Havana with the lighter element which is now an optional extra as are ashtrays...:)
