    Just checked the recent TA reviews and nothing on there that I can see. We did have a thread a while ago about personal safety and not wandering the streets on your own late at night but that advice applies as much in Manchester as it does in GC.

    i read a few reviews on trip advisor here is one of the reviews i read.........
    Be very careful if you visit this area as many of the yumbo visitors are targeted by muggers i have known been to have their bones broke and even one guy got a fractured skull due to him playing with his iphone.
    watch out for many of the bar owners short changing you even though you are being charged double the amount compared to other bars......
    thats why i am thinking should i take my old phone out insted of my iphone s dont really want 2 get beaten up for a mobile phone

    I think that you will find the yumbo to be far more safer than the streets of manchester.............do you carry your iphone in manchester if so then theres your answer

    That's one review out of lord knows how many. You're more likely to lose it on Deansgate on a Sat night. Like I said earlier. Be aware of your personal safety. Use a licensed taxi. Don't walk back to your apartments on your own. Always get a safe and use it.

    If you would feel better taking your older phone for your own peace of mind then do so. You could always take both and leave your iPhone locked in your safe on a night.
