photostream heroWe’ve all seen and heard of scenarios where thieves manage to steal a person’s phone or tablet, but were ultimately foiled due to them forgetting to turn it off, or disabling the device, thus allowing features such as “Find My iPhone” to lead back to them. Well in this case, a woman aboard a cruise ship had her iPhone stolen from her. While she had initially thought her phone to be lost for good, strange enough it seems that photos taken with her phone started appearing on her Photo Stream not too long after. This is thanks to the iCloud service which she had enabled on her phone that automatically uploads photos taken into the cloud which in turn can be downloaded and viewed on authorized devices.

She then created a Facebook photo album dubbed “Stolen iPhone Adventures”. She identified the person who stole her phone as “Nelson” and apparently he worked aboard the cruise where she was on. She has since contacted the officials and hopes that she will be able to get her phone back soon, along with some free passes to Disneyland! For those interested, the album has been made public so feel free to check it out!
