Default Re: Iphone Dilemma

wow guys chill out, he probably found the iphone on the ground. I know plenty of people who find ipods and other electronics on the ground and they sell them/keep them or watever. Nothing wrong with that. Theres no way to find out who a lost ipod belongs to if you just found it on the sidewalk or on the subway/bus. I've even found a few before. including an ipod video, ipod nano, LG chocolate, and some samsung phoen that was broken

If you find something in the steet you be an honest decent person and hand it in ,there is something wrong with finding something thats not yours and having it its dishonest , say you founda walet would you steal from it or hand it in ?
and besides if it was found in ths treet the person whose it was would have claimed it back of the insurance and to do this the phone you found will be locked anyway .
I just think if you want something do it the honest and decent way and work hard to earn it rather than buy someone elses that they worked hard to get in the first place

I agree completely ,

the funny thing is, if you find a phone and can get to the contacts on it. You could easily find a number to someone who knows the phones owner. That really would not be very hard to do.
