    Oh , I sure hope it is mine!!!! At the time mine was lost it had a pink cover (may no longer be on the phone) Is there any pics or anything left on the phone that I could identify it by???

    how did someone find this on an interstate? who stopped their car on it to pick up a phone, how did a phone survive the fall out of the car.
    Guess none of this really matters, just some random questions that popped into my head LOL

    The better question is, if they did stop to pick a phone off of the interstate, how did THEY survive..

    Not sure about pink cover. Did you stop anywhere near Huntsville? If so where? Sorry I dont wanna give out location exactly fearing a wrongful person may go claim it. C

    Up at the top right where it shows your screen name (scroll up) you'll see Private Messages. Click that.
    Inside there you can compose a message to thaDroidz in a private fashion to find out if this is your phone.
    Enjoy!

    Better yet, click his screen name next to his post then click on Send Private Message LOL, that way is easier huh. I'm special

    LMFAO..
    If when all said and done this Droid owner gets reunited with his phone I am gonna quit my job and build me a PI app and go into private investigation business. ..

    As soon as the Guy at work was telling me this last night, I said I will post on the android forums another Guy asked if I thought the owner would be on there. ..
    Duh all Droid owners either lurk or are members.... LMFAO

    There's one more Lurker turned user, your welcome...

    Something
    Somewhere
    If it isn't theirs then just call Verizon and they will know whose phone it is by the ESN located behind the battery. Or at least they will know if it is active or not.

    If the person filed an insurance claim then the ESN will be locked, but Verizon will still likely know who the owner is.:D

    My phone was stolen 7/22 & I did call only to have nobody answer it...then when I did the where's my droid (only app I had on it to locate my phone) It did come back with an address & after that they would NOT power the phone back on....so after a week of it being powered off with nothing from the other end, I had to put another (borrowed) phone on my line.(7/28)..I did not have the insurance, because the last time I "lost " a phone verizon went around & round with me saying I needed to send the old phone in...& I couldn't because my husband lost it in the river....so..that is why I didn't bother with then ins. on the droid...(stupid I know) BTW...I do know my ESN....& the phone has been reported stolen & a police report has been made...but I feel it is gonna take an honest person running across this phone...that will be the only way I get it back i'm sure

    This situation is what made me get the contact owner app. Now on my lock screen it has my name, email and I added my wife's number. I'd you would have had it on your phone the fellow from my work or the person who found it could have contacted you long ago.

    Verizon said they can't all they can do is blacklist it (put it on the stolen list & if I report it found they can remove it) BUT they said the police could since I made a report...I called the police gave them my report # & asked about it...they refused, said they only do that on a kidnapping or murder case only!
