    Found an iphone can i use it on tmobile

    Hello,

    My aunt works at a restaurant and she found an iphone 4 in the bathroom, the restaurant kept it for 2 months in a safe waiting to see if someone would come back, no one did so they gave it to her and now she wants me to sell it on eBay. I was wondering if i unlocked it and sell it on ebay could that person use their carrier and be able to activate. Thank you!

    The owner might have reported it as stolen or lost. I thought the founder needs to report to police, and if no claim in 3 months, police will allow founder to keep it.

    It it was ever linked to iTunes, then Apple will know who it belongs to. The question is, If you had lost it, how would you feel?
