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.

Re: Found Galaxy S2 saying "Not registered on network"

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)
