    Found a Q 9c but has password on it

    I found a 9c a couple of weeks ago. It never rang while the battery was still charged so I'm not sure if the service had already been disconnected or not. But there was a password prompt when I tried to check out the phone. Any idea of how to bypass the password? Or if there is a default code to enter?

    if it's a user set password, no. The best thing to do would probably be to take it to a sprint store. They could return it to the rightful owner from there. If it's been reported lost or stolen there's nothing you could do with it (phone wise) anyway.

    don't think there is...why not return it?

    may take a call to your carrier, give then the ESN and see who it belongs to

    right...:laugh2:
    since u held onto it for a couple weeks, though you couldnt do anything with it. sounds like u may have been searching for a way to use it.

    anyways, just take it to a store or call sprint...instead of sitting waiting for a call, because it'd probably be turned off within a day of it being lost.

    Best to just take it in to Sprint. They arent so expensive now anyway so if you're feelin it, get one for yourself.

    the owner may have info they would like to have back, and would probably be grateful that it was returned in tact. good chance to point them here

    you can always use it as kind of an ipod.......but u gotta get past that password first....force a master reset? but like the other guys said, they have those passwords on their sometimes for reasons just like this.......i know when my phone was stolen it was worthless to them because it was off and had a password on it......but it still blew cuz i lost all my numbers........horay for sprite backup and jeyo mobile companion!

    Why did you have it for a couple of weeks? What was your intent? Seems like returning it to it's rightful owner wasn't high on the list.

    hey if it was someone that really needed their phone like i do well karma woukld be great if you return it.

    if ya dont...karma has a way of catching up to you and then some.

    You could be holding someones link to things you have no idea about. Give it back. Its the right thing to do.

    what goes around comes around and around and around and it bites hard.

    You guys are funny! Well, I have a job. I found it one weekend, checked out what I could and put it on the shelf.
    I already have sprint so I know I couldn't use it. Don't have an ebay account and I wasn't going to set one up for a just for phone. Returning it was actually the furtherest thing from my mind. I just wanted to check it out. But since it's an impossibility....

    Meh if you found it at the park. I would just return it to Sprint when ever I had time. No biggie, I am sure the owner has a new one by now. :)
