As a recent experience with losing my phone, I would suggest taking it to o2 store or what have you and see if they can't locate the owner using the card. However, 6 weeks is a long time if no one claimed it, perhaps they never thought they left it on the bus.

i did take it to o2 they barred the fone the day it went missing there they have replaced the phone under the guys insurance so they told me i could hand it in to them and they would refurbish it or i could keep it so i was wondering if the network chip was on the mainboard and replacing it would give me a phone i did the right thing by handing in at work i know this is a touvhy subject was just after a bit of advice thanks guys

It's a parts phone now. Used logic boards aren't cheap.

I'll take... Jk, don't need any parts ATM.
Must be nice to be able to get insurance to cover ur phone. From what AT&T tells me here, u can't get insurance on the iPhone to cover things like that. Only the warranty/insurance to cover hardware problems.
