Thread: i found an iPhone

    Give it back. What would you do if lost your iPhone. You would want someone to return it and then tell them how to jailbreak it. LOL

    We are being scolded for replying to a thread, however doesn't going on a rant in the same thread and giving your opinion on it also make you guilty of the same. Or are you the exception to your rule?

    Part it out and sell it for parts . lol, I joke

    No. don't do that. Call your home number (with caller ID) and see if a name pops up on the caller ID. then you can look through the phone book. Or Call ATT or take it to the ATT store for the customer info .

    Where do you live that shows mobile numbers in the phone book? Must be a neat place!

    Why are you buying a charger if you already have a iphone. I think you do not have an i phone and you want to keep this one but you are afraid that it will be traced and you will get in trouble. Get the story straight
    If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!

    I wouldnt keep it at all or you will be busted if the person who lost it wants it back bad enough.Trust me i know!

    If you're going to keep it, do it right. Change the serial number, DFU restore it, activate it, and have fun.

    But I suggest you try your best to return it to the owner.

    I would do the both things at the same time-I would NOT search for user for 3 or 4 hours,I will try to stand on the place with an iPhone in my hand,and if the dude will come,I will give it to him,but I will NOT search him for weeks though...)))

    freak that keep it , i live in nyc and ive lost a few phone over the years and i have never receive a call home or to a friend , but besides dat at&t wont track u down, they are not responsible for stolen or lost phones , only if they are reported stolen and someone gets caught with it then the person might get their phoen back if not at&t doesnt give a darn

  12. #52
    personally i think i would search up for someone , and if not keep it...cus if u cant find anybody then the just keep it..

    HAHA, if they did that, life itself would be true happiness. They dont do it, and the probably wont ever will.

    As for the topic:

    I say search for 2 weeks at the most. If you can't find its owner, keep it. I mean whats the point? You can't find them and they obviously don't care if they aren't calling it(unless you left that part out ). Make sure you actually try because it will make the person sad. I had a cell phone and I accidently left it at a Basketball game. I called it for 3 days, went back to the school on the 5 day, no one found anything. got me really pissed/ sad because it had a whole bunch of my contacts and i ended up getting a go phone for 1 1/2 years >_>

    If I ever helped you or made a comment you like, press the "thanks" button!

    keep the **** man. karma... they guy who lost it prolly didn't deserve a 500 dollar phone because they are not responsiable. I've gotten drunk in many a bar with my iphone and never have i been so outta touch as to lose track of my phone. soo K++ to you from somewhere, trust me no ones going to come after you looking for it, and if the 1 in a 10000000 chance they do, just show them this tread. I woulda just kept it or sold it if i had one already. so you're in line infront of me for the after life.

    if the average person in a bar was to find it in the same circumstances, it would be on ebay already or restored and jailbroke/unlocked already.

    people talk about karma, it will come back around etc.... what if something bad has happened to you before? karma is coming back around and rewarding you.

    seriously, just keep it. you didn't steal it. if anything comes of it with at&t etc. then worry about that then. it won't though.
