A couple of weeks ago I found an iPhone 4 and handed it in to the Wanchai police station. On the reporting form it said if no one claims it in 3 months I could take ownership.
So I was thinking if in 3 months' time I get back a locked iPhone, what could I do with it? I don't need another phone, are there any legal resellers I could get some cash from? I read on another thread CSL (a shop?) and some places in Mongkok? Do I need to unlock the PIN code and unlock it from its carrier first?
I looked on a couple websites and to unlock the PIN it apparently you either restore from a computer that has never synced before (my computers already have my backups on there so I'm a bit leery) or get an Apple employee to unlock it and erase the data. But wouldn't it look kinda weird if I turned up with a phone and a police report and asked them to unlock it? Anyone ever done this with a locked iPhone?
