I submitted a request for unit replacement of my 3days old postpaid plan.. i submitted the requirements but sad to say they did not approved it.. i left my phone inside the taxi...but i noticed it after i dropped off that taxi and called the mobile no.on my phone to notify the taxi driver.but the taxi driver didnt answered the phone meaning he get interested... it is still considered theft right?
In common usage, theft is the taking of another person's property without that person's permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it.
In your case, it is called negligence on your part. There was no intent on the part of the taxi driver to deprive you. You suffer the consequence of your own negligence as you did not exercise due diligence in securing your personal property.
