Hello you smelly lot-

Just wanted to share that I found an iphone below the captain this week (I dont know my iphone models but this is a relatively new one, silver, S model), presumably dropped off some lofty perch but amazingly still intact! Turns on, screen lights up but does not show any display besides background light. It even buzzed at me once but I was unable to get any information off it to find its owner.

If this is yours and has any value to you, get in touch. A case was lying right near it, presumably fell off on impact and the phone is yours if you can name the sticker on the case. Seems that besides maybe a bad data connection to the screen the phone is still in working order, and we can figure out hand-off or shipment if you want it. Not quite sure what to do with it otherwise, but I'd take suggestions on that too hah

you could try holding the home button (the bottom center) and telling Siri to "call home" or "call mom"

Hold down the home button and ask what's my name
