@pannobaji  You can report it found and try calling it to see if someone has found it and will answer. If it goes straight to message it's still off. Report it lost again. Repeat on occasion to see if you can locate it.


The finder might answer and offer to return the phone but the person might also decide to use free service.

It's no one's number. It means that someone called you and that no one amswered and it went to voicemail. It's not an outgoing call.

Re: lost phone

@pannobaji  That is your area code (705)? 580 4001 is the pm voicemail number. On my account in Vancouver when calls go to my voicemail it appears as 778 580 4001.

@cellphoneuser1  I just went thru this when my boyfriend lost his phone. The person who found it couldn't answer it because the screen was hopelessly smashed. They put the SIM in their phone and answered. I kept in contact while trying to locate the boyfriend. I kept an eye on the usage and they used it to make some calls and text. Only once they started to burn thru the data I texted them telling them I was turning the phone off and would turn it back on to get in contact. We met up the next day and exchanged reward for phone and SIM card.

You got lucky. If the person finding it was using the data on purpose, that wouldn't be honest. The phone could be doing auto updates.  Some also would have thought you don't trust them when you turned it off and would have just disposed of it.

Re: lost phone

@cellphoneuser1  Oh ye of little faith... the reward cost far more than the value of a now useless phone and a $10 SIM card. It was about rewarding honesty and strength of character. Is was found by two residents of Vancouver's dtes who most would think.....hearing their stories and the effort made to return the phone made it worthwhile to retrieve it. I don't mind the usage of the phone but didnt want to lose 8.5gb of data at the beginning of the cycle. Turns out the young lady cant afford a plan and uses free wifi....she phoned her mom in Quebec and used 500mb of data. Next flash sale I'm reaching out to help set her up now that she knows pm doesn't require a credit check, ID or even a permanent address. Everyone deserves access to phone service that's affordable and pm supplies it.

So you rewarded honesty? The act of her using your data is dishonest.  We don't ageee but sorry, if she could have got away with it, she would have kept using it.

@cellphoneuser1  If? She didn't have to answer the phone nor did she have to show up with it. Maybe you just don't get it or have compassion or empathy for those less fortunate than yourself. This is canadas poorest neighbourhood.....a month before I had my purse stolen in one of Canada's richest neighbourhoods and it's been a nightmare of identity theft but the actual value of what I lost is less and the return of my ID would have warranted a better reward that what the thief actually stole. But thats fine we can agree to disagree we obviously look at world with a very different perspective.

Re: lost phone

@darlicious , I like your story.  A few days ago I read this article online criticising parents these days focusing too much on teaching their children to be successful so to speak.  We will end up with a non empathetic society where everyone is looking for ways to take advantage of the person next to them to get ahead.  A little bit of civility is a breath of fresh air.

@pannobaji , the way the cell network works is that if your phone is not connected to the network calls will go directly to voicemail.  Unanswered calls also go to voicemail but after a number of rings.  I suspect your battery is probably dead by now.
