The batteries were totally dead so I went to a phone store and bought a charger and called sprint and had it activated to my number.
But this guy had his whole address book on the phone. I easily could have found out who he was and gotten him his phone back (I didn't)
My rationale here is that he probably had insurance so its no real loss to him and after 2 weeks he certainly has another phone by now. Meanwhile, my old phone sucked badly and was already a hand-me-down.
What I'm most surprised about was how easy it was activating it. I figure it would have at least been reported as lost and I might have trouble with that, but not at all.
Does anybody get a hold of this guy and get him his phone. I still have his email I think. I'm not going to do it. It cost me $20 just to get a charger. I'm just curious to know who is super-honest-ethical here in pog. I'm not.
i know with verizon if you report it lost, it can never ever be activated by anyone but you
