You'd think a phone in a pocket would be harder to steal than a phone in a purse, it's a smaller target and closer to your body. I'm sure at least someone had to have been wearing something with pockets.
It's a hell of a lot harder to steal out of someone's pocket than it is to grab a purse and run. I'd personally feel better knowing that I have something of value to me in a place where I'll most likely notice if it was taken right away and have a chance to do something about it.
Maybe OP is with the family on the beach? Mother (in a swim suit) sun bathed while everyone else went swimming (in the water, cell phones in water don't mix). Bad guy steals purse while mom is sleeping and family in ocean. Well thats my guess, its most likely wrong, but who knows.
Oh, the irony! Something similar happened to me, but with a backpack. Sucks. FYL, OP. I hope your mom gets you a new one.
