    A few months ago i found on the street a V3i with cingular chip inside, it is safe to buy another cingular chip "Pay as you go" and using this phone with the new chip ? or the company can block or track the phone thru the IMEI ?

    Re: It is safe to use this phone......?

    both,

    but i would recomend at least attempting to find the owner of it, and returning it

    there's alot of people on this forum that ask the same question."I found this phone someone lost, can i use it?"

    always the same answer

    the right thing to do is to try and locate the owner,

    if you turn it in to a local authorities and no one claims the phone in 30 days, i believe you can keep it.
    Hey there!

    I don't know about being able to keep it....that very well could be. But I do know that turning it in to the authorities is the right thing to do.

    Look at it this way, if you spent $300+ on a phone and lost it, wouldn't you want somebody to turn it in???

    that's wht usually happens

    i used to work at a mall, ppl drop stuff all the time at the mall, turns up at the lost and found, after 30 days and no one claims it, it's your to keep

    but yeah, point is, you should try to return it to the owner :]

    i agree wtih these guys try to find the owner just call the numbers on this phone i m sure someone will know how to get in touch with him. maybe he'll give you a reward or something.

    but even if he doesnt at least you have 1 good deed to your credit
