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!

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?

very fishy, very strange situation here,,,

I have a feeling you really like to keep it for yourself, period...

I just hope, you would not be in the other situation yourself, somes others days....

If I would have lost my phone, I'd have it reported and my provider would have blocked the phone (via the imei number) so you'd have a $ 600 iPod :)

its a shame that the carrier cant delete everything off the phone like the iphone shitmodo stole and they used mobileME to stop it even turning on
