iPhone on display before it was stolen

A £200 reward has been offered after a next generation iPhone was stolen from a pavement in central London. This time, Apple can breathe easy – it was a giant iPhone 4 replica constructed by Marius Istratescu, a leading designer who goes by the name 'Decoartist' (

The iPhone was two months in the making (with several failed prototypes before it) as a pavement sign for the iPhone repair company Lovefone ( on Charlotte Street in central London – and it took just 6 hours after its debut on Thursday 29 September for it to vanish.

Marius, 30, from Romania, said, 'I'm so upset – it was such a labour of love – I even took pieces from my wife's necklace to create the camera lens, and cut off a piece of my bike frame to make the headphone jack. We only put it out for a few hours to get some feedback it, before adding a chain – I guess the feedback was that it was far too good not to steal!'

If anyone has any information leading to its safe return, Lovefone are offering £200 worth of iTunes vouchers. Four feet long, the iPhone is immediately recognisable, and so may be being hidden in the thief's home. If you see anyone acting suspiciously with a giant iPhone, please get in touch at or on 02070784341.

Lovefone is a specialist iPhone, Pad and iPod replacement business. It offers a fast, reliable mail-in service for iPhone users across the UK, plus a convenient drop-in and courier service in London.
