It never would have happened aside from him doing that one action, so the fault lies entirely with him. You can't blame somebody for taking something that's sitting on a table with nobody else there...people aren't saints. What you *should* do is take care of your possessions like an adult.
Johmama: I didn't say his insurance policy didn't cover theft...you must not have read his post. He's going to make 2 claims to get new phones (not just this one), sell the phones for money and use the money to pay his cell phone bill. He's not *replacing* his phone with the claim he was talking about in the post I quoted...he's using the claim purely to get money from his cell provider.
Beyond that, it's not "stealing" if somebody picks something up from a table after someone left it there. The legal term is "Larceny", and it doesn't pertain to open property (meaning: property that no-longer has an owner). In this case, he could report his phone as missing to a policing agency, but since he left it on the table and walked away it wouldn't be larceny.
Don't be ridiculous, a crime of opportunity is still a crime. If I found a phone, I would return it to its rightful owner. Only a scumbag would keep it. It's pretty sad that you're defending the actions of somebody who would keep something that doesn't belong to them. This is a wonderful world we live in.

I've been playing guitar for 15 years. Never took any lessons or music classes though, 100% self taught. Wish I had when I first started playing, I'd probably be a lot better than I am.
