    Well I think, technically, it belongs to the insurance company?

    You should keep it and to hell with the insurance company. Trust me, they would forget about you in a heartbeat....

    You can throw it in the bin - no come backs
    You can sell it on for spare parts or unlock to resell
    You can own up and report to insurance

    One of those scenarios is going to give you no profit and no problems, ones going to earn you a bit of money and possible problems and the other no gain and possible awkward questions.
    I know which one of the 3 i definetly wouldnt do and one that i probably would

    they might just remember that and charge you. give the phone to your nephew.

    Unlock it or take it abroad yourself or sell to anyone who is going to middle east/ asia it will work there, or like stated before just bin

    Grow a pair and sell it. some people are too honest for their own good.

    Don't plug it on iTunes can trace ip

    Apple log lost and stolen iPhones

    either sell it abroad or report to insurance company you have found it

    up to yourself what you want to do

    I don't know why you are asking here. You know full well who you should be asking.

    usually the phone would be blocked so you nor anyone else can use it. Try a sim card in the phone, if it works then great keep it as a spare, if it doesnt well you have a nice paper weight

    if they want the phone, i woudl ask them to collect it. Theres being honest and theres being stupid, dont fall in to the wrong class.

    Don't bother if i were you.

    If you have found it, and you have issues, just don't use it.
    Im not saying OH MY GODZ SELL IT OR USE IT! but look at it this way... Would the insurance company have it if you hadn't found it? No.
    What difference does it make if you have found it and don't use it.

    Only looking for potential issues to come your way.

    Don't be foolish.

    Just sell it for use abroard only on fleabay


    Honesty isn't always the best policy

    Is it just me that wants to slap the OP :-/

    in all honesty do what will help you sleep at night..........but dont be a d**k and send them the phone, ask them to pick it up.

    will it be blocked? Do you have to give the IMEI number as a part of the insurance cover?

    dunno bout phone but if it's taken this long to find then you now have the BEST hiding place for Hide & Seek ever!

    Insurance peopl might be friends of your nephew n just messing with you.

    Hahah, what phone is it? Could probably shift the screen on eBay or something, or just use it as an MP3 player like you said before

    stuck a lebara sim in it and its got signal bars etc.

    Read the insurance t&c. If it doesn't say give back then...?

    signal bars dont mean anything, can it make or receive phone calls?
