    Need help finding cyclones in g7 who lost phone(pic of them)

    Hey there guys. Yesterday I found a Samsung Galaxy for Verizon in the portapotty. I kept it on me and answered when the girl's husband called but apparently I gave him terrible directions to our tents. I also gave the phone to a guy who was staying at the tailgate as i was going to the game. Anywho for whatever reason they never found us. i would like some help in returning the phone to the rightful owner. It takes the same charger as mine so i'm keeping it charged. Just wish they'd call again! If you know anyone who lost a phone in g7 please either tell them to call it and/or pm me and i'll give you my number.

    Thanks clones!

    And i think the photo is them....

    EDIT: The phone is locked otherwise yes I would obviously call the number back.

    Have you looked through the contact to see if there are ICE contacts you could call from it? If it's a husband/wife you'd think the spouse would be one of them or a parent you could get in touch with.

    The phone is locked so I can't do anything with it. I took the mem card out to get that photo but couldn't find a contact list or anything.

    I'd probably drop it off at a verizon store, or give them a call and see how they handle it.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Ah, I see. Yeah if you want to get it back to them I'd swing by a Verizon store, I'm sure they can figure out who it belongs to based on the serial number or whatever it's called.

    50% of the time, if you enter 0000 that might unlock it. But yes, I'd take it to a Verizon store.

    Agree, take it to a store. They can use the ESN number and find the owner.

    Re: Need help finding cyclones in g7 who lost phone

    A verizon store can look at the ESN number and find out the owner in no time at all.

    We did it all the time when I worked at Radio Shack way back in the day.

    Thank you thank you thank you! This is my wife's phone!! Not sure how you got the picture out of there, but that confirms it. We called it several times but could not get an answer, so we shut it down. However, getting it back would mean we could get away with not getting tagged with a deductible.

    I've never done it before, but I will try to send you a private message to figure out how to get it back.

    This is yet again proof that Cyclone Nation is made up of great people.
