    You call Sprint customer service, but chances are if you found it, it's already been reported lost or stolen, and they won't activate it, so might as well return it to your nearest Sprint store.

    Treomonter:

    I assume you have made every effort to find the owner such as calling the provider (likely Verizon or Sprint) to id them, etc..?

    Be well,

    I found a car parked near my house. How can I get it under my insurance plan? Do i just need to do a VIN swap?

    Its best you return that phone to the provider.. Go to the store and drop it off.. its a $650 phone and I know in my state stealing something with that much value if a felony not a misdemeanor.

    Yeah, 'found' is a bit broad.

    Technically, some people 'find' things in other people's cars, homes, briefcases, desks, etc.

    You would be best served by getting rid of it. (and some 700P users have complained about THEIR handsets being hot...)

    Hey, we had one at work that was in the lost & found. I knew I wouldn't be able to use it, but wanted to take the battery, after the time ran out. They picked it up a few days later, or, well, it wasn't there anymore, at least.

    It would have been dumb to take the battery earlier, though, since there's only 2 people with Treos that work there.

    to acomplish the task on hand, remove the battery cover, remove the battery, locate the esn number, get a black sharpie and write the new esn number you desire. Then call the phone carrier and give them the old esn number along with your personal info and the new esn number that you just jotted. This should take care of the problem ;-)

    You could use bitpim and serial cable to change the nvm_0002 file to "Fix the esn". but I have not been successful with it. Just change the ESN to a "regular cell phone, such as your old regular (non-pda) phone" and activate that.

    see mobile-files.com for some discussion

    When I was a few years old I "found" a pack of gum on this nice looking rack at the grocery checkout so I helped myself to one. Found out later that you were supposed to pay for it - who would a thunk it?

    You guys are so cynical. I doubt every person that owns a Treo holds it in such high esteem like TreoCentral users, to some people it's just a smartphone. People misplace their cell phones all the time. It is possible that someone lost theirs and it is possible that he found it.

    Maybe he's already turned it in...I'm the eternal optimist

    if it was lost..chances are it was reported in...so the phone is worthless to you...why don't you try tracking down the owner via the phonebook and return the phone. I'm sure you will get a reward as you probably have saved the original owner a lot of money!

    I think we've all gotten our point across. I'm sure original poster has either returned it, or has been shamed into not returning to this forum. Providing further advice along these lines may not be fruitful.
