Did she get her phone back? I suppose even if the police found it, they would have to hang on to it as evidence.

Distracted walking is dangerous. People who walk around mesmerized by electronic devices surgically implanted in their ears are bound to walk in front of a moving bus, or at least make themselves targets of opportunity for thefts. Wake up. Look around. Get off of the phone for a minute.
