If the person who lost it reports it stolen it may make an ok paperweight as the network kills the IMEI number, which will stop the phone working on any network

I don't care if i cant do anything, but i wanted to see if it was capable of anything.


If it's locked then nope. Years ago phones only got blocked from the network they were on when they were stolen, but they changed that because it was pretty much pointless.

You could try to get the IMEI changed, but I think that is a pretty serious criminal offence, you can get up to 5 years for it in the UK and I'd imagine America would be stricter due to how much they love terrorism.

while this is probably true, I fail to see how changing a phone's IMEI could possibly help a terrorist.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

I suppose it'd make the phone harder to trace, seeing as there may be more than 1 with the same IMEI or it will be an IMEI no network or manufacturer has heard of

Generally the whole "locked" thing is to prevent thieves from doing stuff with it.
No it isn't, it's to make it difficult for you to move to another network.

You can generally get phones unlocked at any dodgy mobile shop in your local open air market.
