I know someone who found a cell phone on the street. Did what they could, (replied to last text message, telling where the phone was, for pick up etc. They know it was received as they were asked what phone was being texted from!), but no one ever turned up to collect it. Almost a month ago! Eventually the thing ran out of power and no one has the power cord for it.
So here’s my question, this person also has a cell phone that just died, kaput, no good! They don’t really have the funds, at the moment to buy a new phone, and they already have a plan set up and paid for. Can they use the found phone? Can it be repurposed like that?
I realize they’d have to first invest in the right power cord, and power the thing up and check if there are any missed calls or messages from the owner, of course. But assuming there is nothing there, can they find a way to use it?
