If you enter the passcode wrong multiple times (number depends on setup on phone) it should wipe the phone and be ready to connect to iTunes to be setup.

Or, you could take it to an Apple Store and they could find out who it belongs to and notify that person, the owner, that it's been found. The above method will wipe the data form the phone. But, I believe that it can only be activated on the original PC account that registered it with Apple in the first place. And if the owner has activated Find Me in Mobile Me, he could be tracking the phones location as we speak.

I agree with Pocobear.....do the right and honorable thing and bring it to an Apple Store and have them find the owner. An iPhone is a very personal thing and you would want the same done for you if you would lose your iPhone. Maybe if you are lucky you will get a finder's reward but don't count on it. :)

NO matter where you are in the world, Apple knows who's phone it is. They might ship it to the owner or better yet, have him pickup a new phone at the local Apple store and keep his. If you "found it" how did you know it belonged to a foreigner?
