    Um no...how do we know you didn't confuse the words "find" with "steal?"

    AT&T's going to take this approach especially if the original owner reports their phone lost or stolen.

    Good luck getting a new IMEI (see thread below)

    I don't steal dude! I'm religious. I called AT&T about the phone and they told me if there no simcard in the phone or in/outgoing calls to find out the owner they can't do anything. I'm t-mobile if that count...

    Its pretty amazing if you found an iphone without any history at all (contacts, calls, emails, etc) or simcard in it. Apple can pull up the last owner's information...or at least the orginal purchaser.

    ^ you can't tell me that AT&T wouldn't know who bought/owns the phone by the imei or ser#, sounds a tad strange.
    Find the owner dude, you'll be glad you did.

    I just get off the phone with AT&T. I have to go to the closest store to be able to get the information of the owner. I'm gonna do it on monday.

    This is funny because I left my 3GS in the GYM 3 weeks ago, and a lady returned it to the reception desk.

    I think he or she just got the iphone, that's why was no history/simcard in it.

    You have stirred my curiosity. I am wondering how someone would purchase a new 3G[s], take it out of the box, not activate it, never use it ir put a sim card in it and then just lose it. I'm sorry but this to me just sounds a bit far fetched. In your first post you ask "Can they track it back to me" "I'm on T Mobile" Your wondering if you can use it.
    Then you state you already have a 3G[s].
    So my question would be, where did you find it? What were the circumstances?
    I call B S dude......................
    Just do the right thing and make sure the original owner gets it back.

    So my question would be, where did you find it? What were the circumstances?Parking lot on the ground (grass)at the mall.I call B S dude......................I'm not a geek. I don't spend all my time here posting...
    I don't know anything about IMEI,etc. My question was for: If i can't find the owner i give it to my wife...
    Just do the right thing and make sure the original owner gets it back.
    Just to prove it here is my and the lost phone:

    If indeed you found it, if indeed your going to give the phone back to the original owner. I say, "KUDOS and PROPS to you, your a good man", you'll sleep better at night knowing you did the right thing.

    If this happened to me I would certainly give a cash reward and my sincere thanks to whom ever returned my iPhone. Just sayin'..............

    As would I; if they found my phone and gave it back, the LEAST I can do is hook them up with some cash.

    Return it man, it means way more to the person who lost it than you.
    Respect your elders.
