Hey crowd. My dad just called me to let me know he found a mobile phone at the side of the road on one of his outings. He thought it was dead, but it turned-out to have power (currently) and credit to make calls. He then asked what to do with it. So the question for everyone is:
What do you do with “found” mobile phones?
My best guess it to keep it around waiting for someone to call, then see if constable plod would be interested in it when it dies or you can’t be bothered anymore?
I don’t think rummaging through the last calls log is going to get you very far without a lot of effort and uncomfortable conversations.

Anyone got any better ideas?
FWIW, the phone in question is a Telstra-branded Samsung (don’t know the model) with a Vodafone SIM. This suggests to me it’s a prepaid phone with little intrinsic value (or perhaps a “burner” such-as seen in The Wire – heh!)
