Found: Blackberry

I found a Blackberry at the South Surrey Walmart today. At first I was gonna give the phone to staff at the story but Im sure one of the kids there would just keep it so I brought it home.

I'm hoping the owner calls the cell so I can arrange to give it back to them but the phone is password protected. If someone calls the phone, would I be able to answer it or I would I first need to enter the code? I'd much rather meet the person myself rather than return the phone to Rogers. Any suggestions would help.

call Rogers and tell them. They will contact the owner or at least place a comment on the account. u will need access to the phone IMEI#.

If you do meet the owner in person, do this at a dealer. Tell the sales rep that you are meeting the "supposed" owner and when the owner shows up, ensure they show ID to the store rep to ensure the account is correct and that the phone belongs to the rightful owner. This is to protect you and the owner of the phone.

If and when the owner calls the phone (assuming an incoming call block is not enabled) you shoud be able to answer the phone.

I hate the idea of going thru someones phone but i do want to return it to the owner. I know whenever i leave the house without my phone, im usually feel lost. Anyways i removed the SIM card and placed it in one of my old phones. That allowed me to by-pass the lock and i was able to find the cell's phone number. So ive called it up and left a voice message for the owner.

seriously, if i lose my cellphone, i wouldn't even check my own voicemail, i don't even know how from a landline or anything like that, best thing for you to do would be put the orginial sim card back on the phone and wait for the call

Wouldn't putting the sim card in an old phone, and then looking through their contacts list and finding a "Home" or basically anyways. And then phoning them saying you found this phone, can you connect me with the owner.

Working at a golf course I've found probably 10-15 cell phones. First thing I do is scroll contacts and look for Mom, Dad, or home, tahts the easier way to trace

Doesn't it depend on the phone whether or not it saves to the SIM or internal memory?

No the owner has not called the phone since the time I found it. I can see that the person has received a number of blackberry instant messages and text messages. Due the lock feature, I cannot check them.

I swapped the SIM into my old RAZR to find the cell# associated with the SIM. Once I did that, I called the cell and left the person a few Voicemails assuming the person would check it. After that, I again put the SIM into the blackberry. If you lack in the intellect to figure out how to check your voicemails from a landline, thats no reason to fail me. Im actually going out of my way to help this guy out-- most people would just pocket a $200-300 phone that they find. FYI: call your cell from a landline and hit # once you hearing your greeting. That will prompt you for your password.

Thats what I was hoping to do when I swapped the SIM into my razr, unfortunately the person saved all their contacts into the internal harddrive of the phone rather than the SIM so that won't work.

Im going to swing by a Rogers dealer tomorrow. Since Ive got the cell, cell#, and the SIM serial number-- hopefully they can pull up the persons file and relay a message back to the owner and have him call me.

UPDATE. We'll the owner reported the phone lost/stolen to Rogers but a few days later got a new SIM with the same phone number. I called the number a few times over the last week and left a few messages. Fortunately he got the messages and called me yesterday. I met with him and returned the phone. In return he gave me a $50 Tim Hortons card.
