It is put on silent mode all the time. Good for doing sms & emergency situations.

As for lowering the possibility of loss, keep a low profile that she owns one. Also we give a very cheap and uninteresting model bought overseas and it uses hi card.
So far so good.
Thanks for sharing

Most phones now have a feature in which you can find out where the phone is with GPS tracking. You should do this first. It will help you know the general area of the phone.

Phone theft – note the IMEI number (an international identification number usually found in the battery compartment of the phone) on your child’s mobile. If the mobile is stolen, quote the IMEI number to your phone company to activate an immediate block on the mobile. However, you may be financially liable for any calls made on the mobile before you report it stolen. Instruct your child to hand over the phone rather than try to fight the thief – a mobile is not worth the risk of physical injury.
