    Let's say someone just found a iphone 4 for sprint, and it has not been blocked yet. Would that person hypothetically of course, be able to activate it to his sprint account before they block it, through the online method of activating a phone?

    Or that person could hypothetically return it to the carrier in hopes of getting it back to the original owner who is probably pissed that they lost it.

    Yes, you could hypothetically take and use something that doesn't belong to you. And yes, some one could do the same to you, hypothetically.

    Or we could all consider doing the right thing. Wouldn't that be refreshing.

    If it hasn't been blocked yet, that means it is still activated to the person's account. So no... you cannot activate it on another account. That being said... if you have access to the phone, then I am sure you could call some of his contacts to find the owner and get his phone back to him. Or take it in to Sprint.

    If you did this, I'd say your parents hypothetically did a lousy job raising you.
