    Dutch I think nextel is giving out free data for phones that qualify as long as its a new account and your plan is over $30...
    The only time I ever made a mistake was when i thought I did and was mistaken.

    Some of the responses here are pretty disappointing. It's NEVER hard to find the owner of a modern phone, just look at the call log and phone one of the most frequent or recent, or look for a stored phone number called "home". On a Treo it's REALLY easy, just hit "menu" and "phone info" and you'll get the number, call Sprint and say you've found this phone and can they call the owner by checking their records...

    I've returned every phone that's ever been left behind at my business (a dozen or so), and a couple that were found on the street/park by staff/other customers that way. Never had to keep one due to being "unable" to find the owner, seems like dodgy opportunism to me.

    Out of curiosity, why have you guys suggested Nextel and not Cingular or Verizon? I already have service with Cingular so that is the provider I would like to use.

    RETURN IT

    If you really want a Treo,try and find a good deal and activate one of your own.How would you feel if you lost your cell phone,wouldn't you want someone to return it to you....

    In this day and age,its pretty simple to do.In the last year I've easily found a dozen or more telephones,either in the office,in a cab,on the bus and they've been easy to return either by contacting the owner directly or calling someone they know (by looking in their recent call log) or with the help of their carrier.


    I only hope,g-d forbid,should I lose my Treo,some honest soul steps up to the plate and returns it to me.And if they really wanted one of their own,I'd be willing to contribute towards one for them (I'd give a reward regardless.....)

    And ,btw,the phone you found to my knowledge would not work on your carrier as it is a CDMA device and you would need GSM handset for Cingular.

    But anyways...RETURN IT!

    I woke up this morning and found a Blackberry on the seat of the truck. Huh? Hubby went with neighbor yesterday to pickup a refrigerator - and the neighbor left it right on the seat, in plain sight. Worse, they both forgot to lock the doors.

    Good thing we live in a nice neighborhood. I promptly walked to his house and said, "You know, I coulda just sold it on eBay."

    LOL-that was hilarious. (If we think long enough...we all have left items or have found them.)

    What are you 12?? You plan on buying all the stuff needed for it and try and locate a Start up CD for your machine so you can hotsync all your PDA info? Going to go through all that trouble? I'm calling Bull...t

    Your story is a phony and you my friend need to find better things to occupy your time then coming to forums where educated people converse about technology, and make up ridiculous stories for attention... Maybe you were not hugged enough... maybe the popular kids picked on you too much... Whatever your issue is, Grow up and keep your make-believe time stories to the only person who cares... yourself.
