Any contacts on the phone?

Emails? Texts that can identify the person?

No sim? Based on that and the location, I'm sure it was already stolen before you found it. Good luck trying to get it back to the owner.

But why would someone steal it and just drop it though?

How to return lost iPhone 4 w/passcode to owner??? - MacRumors Forums

According to this thread you can return it to an Apple store. They will find the owner and return the phone to them. You probably should get a reference on who helped you so that person doesn't take the phone for themselves.

Bring it to the local police detachment. They will hold it for x amount of time and you can request it once their period to claim is up. My daughter found a iPod and dod this. You are doing what's right and have the option if no one claims it. Actually not sure about phones, because I remember the cop
Asking if it was a gone but I'm sure you can ask them

This sounds like the best option.

Lol because crackheads have more use for needles than iPhones lol. Probably got irritated when the phone kept asking for an Apple ID lol.

Really, I don't think anyone is calling in the police stations looking for this phone. Unless you can personally find a way to recover any data that links this phone back to the original owner, I don't see any point in taking it to the police department or the Apple store. The Apple store won't release any private information to you and I doubt they are responsible for finding owners of lost phones.

You placed a notification on here, maybe put one on Craigslist, but keep the phone in your possession. Just cause you're Mr. Good Guy Samaritan doesn't mean an Apple store employee will be or the police station lost and found will be.

but what does apple do with phone if owner cannot be located? i honestly want to find the owner, but if the owner cannot be found id rather keep it than have some greedy apple genius keep it.

also im in surrey and there is no apple store anywhere near where i live. it could be weeks before im around an apple store during business hours.

i'm sure the apple store has records of who originally purchased the phone based on IMEI.

They do, but their legal sense and privacy policies will restrict them from doing the "right thing." Finding the true owner is also more difficult than it seems. Chances are the phone could've been sold. The original registered owner has no more rights to that phone than the new finder does. In fact, the new finder has a legal right to it that overtakes all except the true owner. I'm just looking at it from a realistic point of view...

Its an iPhone 5, so there's a good chance its a locked phone. Go to diff stores and ask to pop in diff Sim cards. If one finds service, u know it belongs to that service provider. If the Sim works, they can call their tech support and the imei will be registered to the test Sim card. Then they can use the imei to find the account using that imei. Then they will call the owner.

Keep the phone for now and make a post on Craigslist in B&S and lost and found sections saying that you found a lost iPhone 5 and for the owner to send you an image of the kid.

Even if Apple sends it back to the original owner, he or she might've sold it to someone else.. the other guy could still get fucked. Last option IMO if no one messages you.

Maybe. I haven't had an iPhone since the second gen so I wouldn't know. If that's so then even better.
