Or for that matter found cell phones.
In Chicago this past week a young man at the El station, stole an iPhone from someone and ran.
In the process of making his getaway, this guy pushed a 68 year old lady out of the way and she fell and died.
But I was wondering, what do you do with this phone?
You obviously can’t use it as the owner will immediately call the cell phone to have it deactivated.
Are you able to reactivate it somehow with a different company or something? Does a cell phone have a unique identifier somehow? If it does than in this case it seems it’d be fairly easy to catch the guy or at least the guy he sold (or gave) the stolen cell phone to.
I have about 10 cell phones I have found over the past few years. None of them worked at all when I found them as they had their batteries run out. I used a phone charger (not mine) to charge a few of them and they did work, but since I found them years prior, the owner obviously has a new one by now
I don’t own a cell phone so I’m not familiar how this stuff works
I guess my real question is, what’s the market for stolen cell phones? There must be one as people do steal them.
