We found an iPhone4 in the ocean (in a waterproof case) in Cancun. We brought it home with us in the U.S. The SIM card is Koodo. Do you recommend how we can locate the owner? Or if not, how to make the phone useable, as it is disabled?

If possible, call Koodo at 1-866-995-6636. they might be able to look up the account and contact the owner.

That's great ! definitely give customer service a call and see if that person can be contacted! I'd love to see the outcome of this! I hope that person can be reunited with their phone :) !

There are official folks on this forum. One of them is Ashley. If you ask me she would be the best to make sure the phone get returned to the owner. Call center is ok but I often find it's best to talk to head office if you want these type of things solve. Someone will be very thankful for your honesty Angela!

Unfortunately my husband was not aware I wanted to track down the owner. He wanted to give it to a friend and the phone was reformatted. No treasures left....
I called Koodo after that anyway -- and they could not trace anyone to the SIM card #. So, not a happy ending...I'm sorry to say. :(
We'll be sure to communicate better if we find a phone again!
