Default found htc evo 4g

so i found this phone and i want to look at the contacts to see if i can find someone to call to tell them i have the phone. I don't know if they canceled the service already since i've gotten no calls. the phone is locked with the pattern screen so i can't look at the contacts, is there anyway i can unlock it to look at them?

You could take it to the nearest sprint store and I would think that they may be able to look up the owner by the ESN.

Run an RUU to unlock the screen, skip through the setup, and check the phone settings and information. If it's deactivated and you're feeling naughty, then you can imagine the rest.
