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.

vudukungfu: Won't be out of my way. Outside of washing my hands for having touched an I-Phone.
No need for them.
At all.


You're not the only person I know who thinks "This isn't mine. I guess I'll ruin it." is an acceptable attitude, but I'm pretty sure you're the only person I know with that attitude who is older than 4.

PJ-: 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.

Tsar_Bomba1: If someone leaves a gun in the bathroom then I'm getting a new gun.

If you're that irresponsible with one you don't deserve to carry it.


That's great and everything but maybe it was used for something really terrible and they were looking for some patsy like you.

<b><a href="http://www.fark.com/comments/7547712/82035120#c82035120" target="_blank">Campainger</a>:</b> <i>Last year my daughter found a Rolex on the bathroom floor at our local Costco. It was worth about 15k. I wasn't sure if it was real, but when my wife got home, she looked at the diamond bezel and assured me it was. Do we headed off to the police department to turn it in as I didn't trust Costco. On a whim I checked the list and found on Craigslist, and sure enough, there was the watch's owner. I called him up, we met at a grocery store and I gave him his watch. He gave me $900 against my protests, and my two little girls learned a valuable lesson about doing the right thing.
The best part, we had just moved back here and my wife's plates had expired 6 months prior. The guys wife worked st DMV, took us there, got us a temporary driving permit for the weekend, and got my wife bumped to the front of the line on Monday to get her registered.</i>

That's an awesome csb, but I'm confused. Was it his watch on the floor in the ladies room or his wifes?

Found an I Phone last Friday in a waiting room, turned it into the receptionist.
BFD, why be an ass? I'll bet if some of you folks hit a car in the parking lot, and no one seen you, you would take off.
Admit it.

You still have absolutely no right to destroy someone else's property. I don't care how you feel about the item in question. If it doesn't belong to you, don't fark with it. Most people learned that in preschool.

drjekel_mrhyde: 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.
/No I am not going to the police station with just to be accused of being a thief
//Found a phone(unlocked) and called the persons mom to return it


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.

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.

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.

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?
