    Aye, but my thought was for them to call, not me, I just wanted to be present when they do it so I'd know they contacted. Either way lesson learnt, found item go straight to police next time!

    Lost Iphone (Sydney)

    Well then, fun turn of events today. So I decided to drop by the Apple store on George St to see if they can fix the problem. Walk in, greeted by one of the employees wearing blue shirt (they all wear a blue shirt), explain to him my situation and he tells me "nope mate, go to police" so I thought maybe he is just lazy and doesn't want the hassle so I ask if I can speak to the manager he tells me "I am the manager you can speak to me", that dude played me for a fool! so I call him out on it and say "you are not the manager i would like to speak to the manager plz" in the end it got to a point where both him and me are literally screaming at each other, he got heaps angry and asked me to stand there he will get "someone" (probably security) He tells his 2 worksmates just before leaving the area about my case, they come up to me and politely ask again about my conundurm, I politely reply and they tell me that it is illegal for them to check customer contacts and the only way to get the phone to the owner would be through police. So I did that, went to Town Hall Police station, little chit chat here and there and gave them my details and asked for them to inform me if they found the owner and at around 5pm I get this little gem in my inbox :D So cool! the phone is going to be back to the owner. And just to prove the intertwebs that the whole thing was true: http://imgur.com/a/RKTmo :D

    Ok it is Tuesday and so far no success of finding the person (My MX ad didnt get any calls/txts, since I was at home sick as hell yesterday and could not check MX, I'd assume that MX did not post my ad since it contained my contact number). So tomorrow before going to class I'm going to stop by Apple store on george st and ask them to open this thing up and backtrace the serial key to the owner, am I in the right if I ask to be present when they do it so I know for sure that the owner has been contacted? I wouldn't want them just to say sure mate but put the phone back for re-sale or anything (I doubt they would do that but hey! its Apple! heh) OH! Today at about 8.30ish some alarm went off on the phone saying "Get to BCH", tried googling BCH but got lots of different results so that didnt help either :<. Anywho, going to take some photos of the phone and at apple store just to prove to the interwebz that this was not a troll but an actual attempt at finding this ownerpersondudechick :)

    Cheers man, my mate brought his car charger for an ipod and we charged it a little today, I figured out the simcard storage but I dont have a paperclip on me (tried using stapler thingies but the damn thing is too fragile and starts to bend easily), no one has called so far so once I go to uni on wed ill just drop by the apple store (seems like the most logical idea)

    Why I did not hand it to cityrail lost and found? From personal experience when my dad has lost his glasses on the train and asked me to check lost and found at central, I did that and you know what the guy at the counter said? He walked me to the area with glasses and literally told "Just pick any one mate" , ANY.ONE. , they dont give a shit about whether the item you pick is actually yours or not. So no I rather not give it to them so they can pocket it or sell it off. To the police you say? Because tracking down an owner of some phone is their top priority right? They have much more pressing issues to deal with than that. Removing the sim, I got nfi how to do that, i tried looking around the phone it has some screws on it but id rather not dabble with that incase I accidentaly scratch or break something. Phone battery is low and our family owns no apple products so I cannot charge it, I had it on the whole day while at uni incase someone calls and yes it is a 4 digit pin, i tried syncing it with my friend itunes and it still says sim is locked cannot access, tried 0000 (you know, the default pin heh) and that locked me out for an hour so I am not touching it again. So hence why I turned to the intertubes seeing as whoever owns an iphone probably surfs the interwebs or has friends that do and they can point him/her to me, failing that MX should have a post today and if nothing happens I will have to go down hipster central and see if they can open up and check the phone serial and contact the owner (i think you have to register all apple products, might be wrong though)
