This morning, I, too, encountered an unattended Iphone face down on the sidewalk near my home. If you have lost one, PM me with details and we will arrange to get it back to you.

I would look for an entry for a family member in the Contacts and call it. For example, in my phone I have an entry for mom and dad. if that doesn't work I would go to the Messages and text the last few people who the person had contacted or been contacted by. And finally if that didn't work I would go to Settings > Mail and look at the email addresses setup and email all of them.

The problem is that I can't get past the passcode. Is there some way around that? I am not an Iphone user!

Call the apple store at (512) 634-0520 and they can contact the owner using the serial number or just drop the phone off at the store.

Okay - so I just did that, and they told me they have no way to help locate an owner or get past the passcode. I was told to file a report with the police. I guess that is my next call. Thanks!

Interesting that they would say that given I called and spoke with them before posting this and just gave you the instructions they gave me. I think that one of the people who we spoke with didn't know what he/she was talking about, and my vote would be the person with whom you spoke based on a ton of Google search results.

Having said that taking it to the police is a good idea and advisable.

One other thing I found that may work is even if a phone is locked if you hold down the home button for 3-5 seconds the voice prompt will activate even if the phone is locked. Then you can try saying call home or call mom and see if you can get it to dial someone in the owners contact list.

Or if you really want to get tricky you can pop out the SIM card and put it in another phone and probably access the contacts that way...not guaranteed but may work...

In any case, good luck with whatever you end up doing.

Well, I talked with some young lady there - can't remember the name. I may try taking it over to the Apple Store at the Domain given that the phone number you listed was at Barton Creek. I have filed a police report, and I may try your suggestion about the sim card - ood idea. I hadn't thought of that. Hector has an Iphone 3, so it might work in there.

This thing is becoming an albatross!
