Well my wife did! Day before yesterday.

Itís a Nokia somethingorother and the reason I know itís a Hibby is that Hibs main number is in the phonebook.

It was found in Sleigh Drive.

The phonebook starts

You can either give me a ring on it, but not tonight - Thursday, or PM me with something to identify the phone. We can then arrange to get it back to you.

Would have posted earlier but I had to charge it then forgot about it!!

Admin Iím putting it on the MB to give it a bit extra publicity, if its claimed Iíll delete it or you guys can move it.

What if Alfie, or anyone else on the phonebook I chose, is an ex or worse? :cool2:

Jack, that might be too late. If it's a contract phone the person who has lost it has probably reported it as lost to the network and it may be cancelled. So you might not be able to phone - just a thought :dunno:

It's always worth a try. The person who the phone belongs to could be cring his/her eyes out at the moment.

Maybe a long shot but I'm surprised the owner hasn't tried phoning it themselves :confused: Have you checked under missed calls to see if there's been any from a landline since you've had it?

I found a phone at a Newcastle game once and phoned the "mum" contact.

After initially saying that he was wearing his Newcastle top :faf: she then went on to give a reasonable description and I was able to hand it back to the owner who was sitting a few seats along in the row behind me.

One of my mates lost a mobile at the weekend in the Ormelie Bar area or on the bus home (eastwards). Don't think he knows an Alfie or Alan but he does have a Mum :hmmm:.

Re the other lost phone. Does it have an "IOC" (In Case Of Emegency) number in it's phone book? If it has, try that.

Or call and pretend it is unintended so she hears some dodgy noises - perhaps some heavy panting, groans, screams of delight etc coupled with some sheep/donkey noises! :greengrin

I think Seb Coe has an IOC number in his phone which he uses for sending texts detailing where to pick up the brown paper envelopes stuffed with used fivers.

There's 2 missed calls but I cant see what they were - weird phone!

Wizzny me :greengrin

3 photos, dont recognise anyone - not from that angel anyway.

Its not sending texts, or making calls.

I have removed my offensive bit too!


And if you had found a phone that belonged to a hearts fan.......:wink:

Yeah, that crossed my mind, what would I have done? Iím banned from JKB so weíd just have to have fun from here.


SO.. has he got his mobile back?

Nope!

Right I sent a text before I left for work, when I got home the text had not left the phone. Canny text canny call.

I used my own phone to text Mum but neither Mum nor anyone else has got back to me.



About ICE numbers. I have contact with folk close to the ambulance service. When I asked them about ICE while not being dismissive they said that if they were tending to someone who was unable to converse with them theyíd be too fíg busy trying to save their lives to rummage about their person or handbag to look for a phone they might not have and then trawl through a phone book on a mobile for a number that isnít likely to be there!

think most people, and ive done this a couple of times, would do is phone mum/dad/home/house/wife/husband on the persons phone. common sense no?:confused::wink:

Yes, I'd hope that would be the case if you were the only one on the scene, but usually it would be the police's job to contact the NOK in an emergency :agree: We had a guy admitted to the hospital today and he couldn't remember his NOK's details :bitchy: so they'll have no idea where he is.

Whatever you do Jack, Don't hand it into the police station if nobody comes forward to claim it...just keep the thing if it's any use.

I found a lovely spanking new blackberry in the back of my taxi. The sim had been cancelled but the phone was still active and passed security for some reason. I think the passenger and phone were foreign so maybe they couldn't block it for some reason.
I started to feel a little guilty so after a week I done the right thing and handed it in to a police station (of course thinking I would get it back after a while). The copper behind the counter looked at it and said it was basically a brick(which I knew it wasn't) but I can have it if nobody claims it after a few months.

I looked at the back of the reciept I was given and it clearly said that they do not return mobile phones to the finder. I bet there's some copper in corstorphine who has just had a wee look at that phone, realised that it's OK and is swanning about with a new blackberry...probably that lying twat who took it off me.

I hope the hibee gets his phone back but I hope you now know what NOT to do!:bitchy:

"Wife" or "Husband" :faf:

My Dad is a taxi driver and he's told me that when he finds phones people don't even try phoning the phone half the time. Is it just me or would that be the first thing you'd do? He normally phones either "Mum" or "Dad" and gets them to pass on the message.

Here comes one of these pashed replies at 2.30am in the morning that you should not bother with. In all honesty it looks to me like you want to keep the phone, eg my wife fouind it the day before you even post it on here for some obscure reason that the guy is a hibbie. FFS if you find a phone call some numbers on it right away to let it be known that the phone is safe instead of all the amateur dramatics what will i do with it. Poor show. :boo hoo:

My thoughts exactly. Is it really so hard to pick out a few numbers and dial them explaining the situ. :bitchy:

Not being funny but you've had the phone 4 days and you've still not called one of the numbers on the phone.

Like I said in an earlier post, I found a phone, dialled "mum" straight away, got a description of the owner and once I'd confirmed who it was passed it on to him. It was that quick he hadn't even realised he'd lost it.

Would you reply to a text from a number you didn't recognise? And that's assuming his mother isn't of an age that would put her into the technophobe bracket (mine would not even know how to view a text on hers).

This all seems a bit suspicious....
Most likely whoever owned this phone has blocked it by now so its useless anyway.
