    Yes return the phone to sprint... You dont just find phones on the street. It is either lost or stolen.. Like I said before its a $650 phone and in my state that is a felony. They probably got your sprint number and have your billing address and will contact the local police and person who lost it or had it stolen from and you will be charged. By law if you find anything you must report it to the police, and after a period when no one claims it, the property may be turned over to you.. But what you are doing is illegal and wrong you need to turn the phone over the sprint or the authorities.

    Also this is the second post in the same day about a "found" treo and you just created a new account..

    In short this phone is a brick and will never work.

    Hi Jason!

    I am not sure what you are angry about . . . . the now missing post was a fairly in your face commentary from you to the forum membership.

    And I still find it incredible that a Sprint store would either buy back a lost Treo from you or assign it over to you, as you stated in the now missing post.

    If I lost my Treo, I would appreciate someone making efforts to return it to me rather than convert it to their own use -- I am not sure why you find that line of thinking offensive. . . .

    Cheers, Perry.

    Lets just put it this way... If you lost your computer or car and I found it does it make it mine?? No.. I have 2 choices, 1. leave it and keep walking or 2. report it to the proper authorities. The option you have picked is illegal and if caught you can face felony charges because of the value of the phone.

    I would pick it up and return it not try and activate it like you are doing... Do you not understand the concept of what is wrong and right? What you want to do is plain and simple stealing.

    I have found several cell phones left by people over the years.. The first thing I do is open the phone up and see who the phone is registered to and if they are smart they have their name as a contact and I call them. If not I find the last name of the person registered and look up someone with the same last name and call them (usually a family member). Did this once and the guy gave me $20 for returning his phone.

    I also found an ipod once and turned it in to the business lost and found. I could of easily pocketed the ipod and used it for myself but again thats stealing and wrong. People have to work hard for their money it doesnt grown on trees..

    I am guessing you are between 10-16 years old since you have no sense of what authority can do. Again its a $650 phone stealing that much is a felony and will go on your record. But again I am sure the person reported it loss or stolen and if he has insurance the insurance company will track you down since they are out of pocket $650 to buy him a new phone.

    Yea I am sure you do.... Originally you found a treo 700p then made a new screen name then posted here... And we all know how true you story is since you just walked into a store with a treo and asked to activate it under your account, and they asked no questions about it, and the magical red flag on the ESN just disappeared.
