This Apple iPhone 3GS 8 GB was found at 2011 Sangamon County Relay for Life. Phone was turned into accounting room during event which took place inside Expo Building at Illinois State Fairgrounds. I’m aware of where device was found but won’t share that here.
I’m not sure how someone couldn’t realize they dropped their phone. You’d think this phone would have made a loud noise when glass shattered. You wouldn’t think someone would just leave a broken phone where it fell. Maybe in a fit of rage they just stormed off and left phone.
If you are owner of this Apple iPhone 3GS or know who is – please contact local Relay for Life office in Springfield Illinois. So phone ends up with it’s proper owner. Give as many details as possible so ownership can be confirmed. Currently phone is not operational. Not that I really expected phone to boot after being seriously damaged. It would have helped identify owner easier if phone had functioned.
First time I saw an Apple iPhone in person was in Seattle years ago when original had just been released. These phones were all the hype and rage at that moment. Phones were in short supply. My girlfriend & I were sitting at a table inside WaterFront Seafood Grill Pier 70. Our host and one other guest both pull out their precious. It was classic. Both got passed around table. I’m not a big Apple fan and was turned off by all the hype. At that moment I was more worried about dropping an expensive phone than giving it a long once over.
