The probability of lossing your money when you put it together with your phone in the same pocket is very high. This is brought about by the fact that you'll have to pull out your phone severally from your pocket to check on new messages, to pick calls or just to browse through social media. When you pull your phone off your pocket, there is possibility that it will come out with money from the same pocket and because you'll be more concentrated on the phone than the money at that time, you'll only realize later that you've lost your money.

This is also a common mistake in matatus. Where passengers put their phones together with money in the same pocket then when pulling out the phone, money falls on the seat. Unfortunately, for these kind of losses, you'll only realise when you want to purchase something then you find out you don't have the money. That's when you'll begin searching and trying to figure out where you lost your money.
