Tha means its been BLOCKED

since you 'found' it the owner has marked it as stolen and reported the authorities leaving it useless.

Theft by finding is a criminal offense in the UK. Hand the phone into the police.

The phone is probably blocked and marked as lost/stolen. The best thing to do is hand it over to the police.

hand it to police thats theft!!!!

you wouldn't like it if your expensive phone got lost with all your pics/ messages/ number on and the person who finds it just keeps it, I've handed many phones in from night out and even had someone send a card with money in saying thanks for sending(post) it them back.

If i lost mine i would be gutted if the person who found it just kept it.

Need a sim FAST i will send first class post any sim type just send me a Private Message.
Also will deliver by hand in local areas (Tameside, Stockport, Wilmslow and surrounding areas as I travel these daily)
