    I don't think anyone here will help you bypass the lock screen from a "lost" phone. Did you try locating the original owner

    If the phone was under contract, it should have the carrier logo on the outside of the phone. Take it to one of the carrier's stores and they can look up the owner based on the IMEI number. Most likely you would leave it at the store and let them return it to the owner.

    the phone had no sim card in it or anything and it was pretty beat up. I took it to a store and they said that it was most likely used as a prepaid. so I dont know. I just cant bypass the lockscreen for some reason. I tried to take the battery out, hold the volume button down, menu button..please any ideas? thanx!! ;)
