    I found an iphone on the ground like 4months ago, the screen was all cracked, and recently i fixed the screen. And was wondering if i could get a SIM card from rogers, and get a pay as u go contract. I jailbroke it and unlocked it.

    PS. How does pay as u go work, im new to cellphones and simcard an all

    So

    any contact info on that phone history! I know the whole old finders keepers thing but one should at least try to find the phone owner! oh don't bump your own thread! either people can't help or don't want to,guessing the latter!

    He's jailbroken it and unlocked it - wiping all data from it.

    Personally, I would have handed it in, but hey, we're not all model citizens.

    The phone was like literary screwed, the whole front screen and back just didnt work at all, the sim card was removed to. I dont think the owner would just leave a iphone on the ground like that. & i wanted to contact someone but i couldn't even turn the iphone on :p

    Contact Rogers and find out about their Pay as you go plans.

    I doubt it since you can stick your sim to any phone you want but if they ask for it you know how to get it right?

    Canadian providers just like US dont flag or care about lost or stolen cellphones.

    Having my smart phone stolen in the past, I feel sorry for whom lost it. (My windows mobile phone.)

    But in all honesty I would not have gotten the iPhone if my Windows phone was not stolen.....

    Skip the below if you dislike OT blabber....

    My windows phone was like 3 months old when it was stolen and the iPhone was litterly announced like 2 days after it was stolen, my jaw dropped and I said... thanks you theif! I get an iPhone now and I don't have to feel guilty for buying it. I was stuck on a stupid brick phone for 7 months though... Going from any smart phone to a Nokia brick phone is hard...

    Although they did get all of my contact info and make $700 of calls to mexico. And the phone was down at the border within 6 hours of being stolen (It was air shipped, obviouly) (They left the phone on and att kept telling me it was down at the border, lol) (att refunded the $700 of calls) ( I did not deactivate the phone immediately because att said they were making calls to Texas initially.) (I had a X friend at the time whom said he was going to run away to Texas, to see some family his parents were refusing to let him. I was sure he had stolen my phone, this was not the case though.)
