Default Found a Bold 9700

Please Login to Remove!

i recently found a bold 9700 at work, waitied the full 60 days to see if anyone would claim it and they didn't so my employer gave it to me.

the person who owned it has a password on the device (which i don't ovbiously know)

is there any way i can use the phone myself without knowing the password?

it's branded to telus, and i want to use it with a bell sim card...

i am brand new at this, please help... i dont currently own a BB, this would be my first one.

thanks

Bring it to your local police station.
It's not yours.

If you enter an incorrect password ten times, the device will wipe and reset itself.

That was ddecent of you to wait the 60days to see if someone claimed it. However, it may not be an employees phone. Maybe a visitor, a vendor that supplies the company. If you really want to do the right thing...call Telus, give them the IMEI # and they will know who it belongs to so they could get it back! You'd want someone to do that for you, wouldn't you?

Agreed. Its not finders/keepers. I still think will be difficult to activate the phone
