You would be better putting this on one of the benidorm groups on Facebook

Sorry but yours are one of many "lost" phones, wallets and bags that appear on this forum weekly.

It's a 99% chance that a pickpocket had it out of the back pocket. Benidorm pickpockets make a good living from lifting phones and wallets from back pockets.

Your phone will have the SIM card removed within minutes and sold on within an hour.

The "trendy" idea of carrying phones in back pockets should change. 

Sorry but it's a Benidorm fact......

Unfortunately your phone isn't lost but stolen. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Thieves are working all over Benidorm. You don't have to have your phone in your 'back pocket' or 'sitting on a table'. These guys are experts and can unzip man bags too without your knowledge unless you have the bag to the front of your body. I'm speaking from experience!

I’m sure you’re right - sad…
