The sad thing is is that there really isn't any need to 'attempt' anything. All the OP had to do was wait until the owner eventually called, then say "Yeah, come by my house after 5 to pick it up." That easy. But he(and others in this thread) would instead prefer to be a douchebag.

Destruction? As in death? The irony. Yep, I deserve death for defending (and not actually choosing... see earlier posts) the unpopular view in a hypothetical situation.

i thought these iphones were so freaking advanced? if they are so advanced, the buyer should be able to retrieve the phone some way, no? like when the next "buyer" turns it on, gets it activated, won't something come up in the red?

I think thats only if you have a certain app on it and the phone is on. I'm pretty sure if the phone isn't returned to the owner in 9 days it will self destruct.

But that view is completely irrelevant to the thread as the OP isn't selling it to feed his kids since he just lost his job or something like you theorized, he's selling it to pay for text books. He said that. You're arguing just for the sake of arguing.

If you find an iPhone while walking in the park, you sell it. Chances are if you lose your phone you're not getting it back. Too bad, an idiot lost his phone, that's life. Sell that phone, easy money.

The title of the thread is "you find an iphone while walking in the park." The thread isn't about the OP, but what each of us would do in the proposed situation. Yes, I originally defended the OP's case, stating that I would feel the same way if my own valuable possessions had been stolen in the past. Posters began to chime in with jargon on how that perpetuates the cycle. That pretty much resolved that argument. Then, you and other posters wanted to add circumstances to the hypothetical situation, such as the owner running off to chase his dog. That's when I added the hungry kids argument, which was actually more of a counter-argument. It had nothing to do with the OP.

Yes, I was arguing for the sake of arguing. I was pissed yesterday and needed to vent. Looking back, a lot of my responses were aggressive and immature. I apologize.

Do whatever you would hope, would be done, if you lost your phone.

Well, the OP was clearly looking for support in what he was already planning to do(i.e. take the phone and sell it). I only mentioned the 'dog' theory because people were justifying the taking of the phone by saying the owner of the phone shouldn't have been so irresponsible.

Apology accepted. Now I feel kind of bad for the nasty neg-rep I left you(and yes, that was actually me who signed it, not just someone signing my name).
