A friend sold me an 8700c that fell into a glass of water. Subsequently, even when it was turned off, it would vibrate.
So he invoked the insurance. Yes, I know they aren't supposed to insure the 8700, but they slipped up and did, so they let him use it, then cancelled the "policy." He wanted to keep that one for parts, so he told them it was lost.
He recently switched to an iphone, so I bought his old 8700 (also for parts--the battery and wall charger, mainly) for $10.
Well, lo and behold, it works now. I guess whatever was making it vibrate finally dried off.
My daughter needs a phone (and some kind of organizing tool), so I'm thinking of giving her the 8700. I'm still using an 8700 that works fine.
My question is, is there any sort of code in the phone that will mark it as "lost or stolen" when I activate the SIM card I bought for my daughter? Will the system recognize the phone and send the cell police? I won't be getting her the Internet package.
