Why do women carry their phones in their hands? Why don''t they tuck it in their handbags after use? I have seen most women actually holding their phones all the time.

7 plus, new phone is around 28000/-, for this phone just 14, 000 to 18000/- is the resale value. However his act has to be appreciated
全新iphone 7 Plus的价格约为28000卢比，而这部旧手机的二手价格仅为14000至18000卢比。司机这样做，值得赞赏

How did the woman forget the phone a second time? That shows she is careless. The driver returned the phone as he knows that it can be easily tracked by the police using the IMEI number.

lost phone in auto once and careless enough to lose in auto the second time as well. you can't be lucky everytime.
it just takes a moment to look back at the seat while getting down from an auto to ensure that you are not leaving anything behind.
