I have found a BT mobile phone - the battery died, so I can't search the contacts to look for any numbers to call, as the phone is asking for a pin code, once recharged.
It's an iPhone 4 or 4S.
I am happy sending it back only to the owner. There is picture on the screen that pops up - the owner should be able at least to describe what's on the picture, not to mention sending a copy of it - just to verify the ownership.
It's a good looking girl on the pic, so I guess the phone belongs to her boyfriend/husbend/lover or whoever of that sort 😉
Any ideas how to get the number off the sim card? I know I could ask BT (howzit admins 😉 ), but I have little faith in sending it back directly to BT, I'd rather send it back directly to the owner.
Hand it in to the police, they will charge it and try to contact the owner.
The service provider [of the SIM] should be able to link the IMEI number of the phone to their customer with a fair wind; an alternative to the police is to take it to the nearest service providers retail outlet on the highstreet.
I am not in The UK - so handing it over to Police is rather a complicated solution (in terms of the process). The owener must have been on vacation in my coutry, it's in EU.
I guess it should be possible to identify the owner based on the number printed on SIM card. Does any of you have any idea on the process of telecoms in such situations? As I said, I am happy sending it directly to the owner, but have little faith in sending it to BT. I don't think it will reach the owner.
Thanks in advance!
have you tried inserting sim card in a friends iphone it may not connect to network but may give access to contacts?
Thinking about this, Im certain any Apple store anywhere could trace the owner
It's an iPhone - opening it to get to battery might void the warranty - I am not sure, but don't want to take the risk.
There is a SIM card inside, with BT logo on it. I know, I am such a Sherlock 😉
I thought about getting in touch with BT, asking to pass my contact details to the owner - but I think it will rather be subject to friendly service of some employee, not a regular BT procedure.
Getting in touch with Apple store might be a good idea.
you cant void the warranty by opening the back otherwise how do you put sim card in?
