For many people (myself included), our smart phones have become a central part of our daily routine, just like breathing and eating.

Except........you can actually live without a phone.

CSB:  I've found 4 phones in the past few years and the first thing I did each time was to scroll through the Contacts and look for a number for "HOME".  I've then called the number and arranged to meet the owner to give it back.

The one time I lost my phone in a cab in Atlantic City, it eventually found its way back to me.  2 weeks after losing it, some guy called a friend of mine to say his sister had found my phone.  She was halfway through deleting the contacts (she'd already deleted HOME and had gotten through the R's) when he took it away from her. He said she'd planned on erasing the history & selling it, so he smacked her upside the head and did the right thing.  WTF is wrong with people?

I left my BF's iPad in the bathroom of a resteraunt once. I freaked out, called the place, went by and searched it...no luck. My BF was pretty mad, and I had a meltdown, I felt so bad about it.

He didn't have iCloud or whatever installed, so I figured on just paying for a new one. 3 days later, a guy calls him (got his number off his email sig) and said that he was very sorry, and he wanted to return the iPad. Turns out, his GF was eating at the same place, and snagged he iPad out of the stall after I left and proceeded to give it to him as a birthday present. She never bothered to clear anything off it, and it was obviously full of his stuff, including family pics, etc. They had a good laugh and the guy told him to be thankful that he merely had an absent-minded girlfriend, rather than a thieving one. Made me feel a bit better. ;)

Had a buddy of mine find a wallet with about $1800 cash in it about 4 years ago. Asked him if he was going to return it, his reply 'if you are dumb enough to lose your wallet with that much cash in it, you don't deserve the money'. He took the cash and threw the wallet in a mailbox.

Your buddy is a douchebag. I found a wallet with 500 dollars in it and no id. I found a phone number on a slip of paper and eventually got in touch wih the owner.

Got 50 bucks and a huge thank you, and I can sleep at night.

I had a $100 reward sticker on my old Skytel 2-way pager because I used to lose them all the time and they were like $500 in the mid 90's. One day I get a call and the person on the other end just kept yelling "reward" over and over again. Eventually she shut up enough to give me her address. In an enormous coincidence the woman with my phone worked for the MTA bus service in the lost and found department.

The phones I have found over the years were never happy stories either. People are insane.

Some idiot called me up once and said he found my wallet that had $500 in it. Wasn't even mine but somehow there was a post-it with my number tucked in there. Easiest $500 ever.

Heard a good one the other day: Recent research has shown that what brand smart phone you choose says a lot about your personality. Android users are the most intelligent. iPhone users are the most creative. Blackberry users are the most depressed.

Best thing to do is just toss it in the garbage. Serious people do lock their phone so how in the hell can you find them when you find it in a were there is no CS dept.

I met a friend for lunch and we walked around for about an hour afterwards, then I said, 'hey, when I met you, wasn't I carrying a camera bag full of gear that I need for my job? We beat it back to the restaurant and the bag was still sitting under the table. I was so scarred by that incident that I won't misplace another Important Thing until I go senile. So I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Uh, she is a thief. If that's what really happened at all. Someone taking something stolen from a toilet and giving it to someone else as a 'present'??! They're both crackheads.

Doing nothing but moving on with your life makes you, well, just an average human. Going out of your way to damage someone else's property is what makes you a shiathead.

The best thing to do is either turn it into lost and found or turn it over to the police.  And no, they're not going to accuse you of being a thief when you GIVE THEM THE FARKING PHONE.

I've returned phones to people who react the same way. A mumbled "thanks" with an attitude like I'M the reason why they lost their phone in the first place.

I keep telling myself I won't bother helping anymore, but I'm a softie.
