My good friend, I have found at least 15 or so cells over the years.
Usually scuffed as if they fell off the dash and then slid on the pavement as some idiot made too hard a turn.
From what I saw in the address books and some of the texts' that were saved, most likely young people that lost 'em.
I feel no remorse at all for keeping them and turning in the phone when the charity people do their "donate a used phone" drives.
I take no tax bene, I don't try to find out who the prior owner was, I don't use the phone to run down minutes, I don't care, I got my own and I
pay for what I got.
I work in upscale areas and know the phones were insured.
And if it wasn't, sorry for their luck. (not really)
Locally, there is a program where these types of phones are GIVEN to the elderly and left "dead", as all phones, active or not, are capable of
making a 9-11 call.
Now, if you count yourself among the downtrodden, by none of your own degree, keep the damn thing and sleep tight.
If you are insolvent, got a car you in your heart know you cannot afford, cable tv, plasma flatpanel, etc., ad-nauseum, give it back.
The amazing thing is, I think you know, already what you want to do, just want validation to do it.
