    call the dude and ask what his birthday is.. or send him an email, also hope he doesn't have insurance and decide to report the phone stolen.. he gets a new phone for $50.. and you get a nice paperweight

    Along side the birthday they all a secondary question. Usually like your birth place too. If the bill isn't paid about a month to three months before the phone is deactivated.
