I found one today, is there anything I can do with it? It doesnt do shit when I plug it into a pc.
plug it in for a bit to make sure it gets a little charged, then hold down the top botton and the menu button for a while (15-30 sec) and see if it does anything
I'll buy it off you.
how about give it back to the person who owns it
um how would I do that, it has no sim, gonna bring it to the apple store tomorrow. Its still under warranty.
They can find the owner with the serial number.
Nope, it wasnt registered, I just registered it using my name thru the apple site.
lol nvm, that online registration isnt accurate, i just did my ipod twice. I dont think apple can see who registered it before, only ATT.
Apple can for sure, as soon as the iPhone is activated if is in their systems.
hmm, oh well, whats the worst that can happen? how should I approach apple store so I can get a free iphone?
congrats. Your a theif, or just lucky. Who would leave their iphone all by their lonesome? Poor iphone.
especially since its now owned by someone who drinks Milwaukees best
Either turn it into your local police station or maybe an Apple or AT&T store as suggested above.
I don't know about the Apple or AT&T store, but usually the police will give an item back to you if the original owner isn't found in a few weeks or months or so.
apple will generally seize it and find it to it's original owner
if you still have it, PM me the IMEI from the back and i can contact the real owner and let them know you have it. might be a reward in it for you, if the owner wants. but dont turn it in to a store, most will keep it for them selves, this i know first hand and the police will do the same and bring it in to an att store to get it hooked up
i think there was something on dateline where they left ipods out and people stole them. when they connected them up, they phoned home and somehow law enforcement got involved
on a side note, i have yet to see a single person using an iphone. i've never actually seen one before, other than images online and in the newspaper etc
wow every one and their mama has one. i want one but i cant use it because of my account type. i need BB functionality. might get one on my personal line especially after seeing all the modding going on. and i dont think the phone, phones home. if you remove the sim and register it through itunes with your account it will be listed to you. unless you do am IMEI search, which i have offered to do. i would hate to pay that much for a phone and loose it
Steal my iPhone and plug it into your machine and see what happens to your machine.
does your company that works hand in hand with apple come and steal it? or does it immediately burst into flames?
No but your computer may have some issues afterward.
if you were a reasonable human being, you'd do what you can to find the owner of the phone, even if it meant *gasp* calling someone on their contacts list.
if you decide to do something other than that, you can eat a fucking dick
