Contacted owner

During the the whole day yesterday I spoke with the owner and we even had a skype chat with video and so on.

Yeah! Phase 1, COMPLETE!

Now we're looking for a way to deliver the phone back to him.

Received an e-mail from owner!

I just received an e-mail from some one who claims to be the owner. Here comes the hard part. Did we really find the needle in the haystack?

The nice thing is that the e-mail explains where he lost the phone with some details even I didn't know. I just checked them with my cousins and it all seems to be correct, so I believe we've found the legit owner.

But we'll make a couple of extra checks.

I'm trying to post an ad in > SF area > Lost and Found, but the 'Post' site seems to be down. :(

More details

The phone found is an iPhone 3g (or maybe 3GS, but I'm not sure) with 16GB and black back.
It's saved in a black rubber protector (see pic).
UPDATE: Just checked some features and I believe it's a 3GS. I could copy/paste and record video. According to ads that's a 3GS feature.

A pic of the phone

That's a pic proving I'm from Barcelona. BTW, I took the pic with my iPhone (yeah, I got one too).

Contacting AT&T is not easy

Many already suggested that I contact AT&T and they will contact the owner. Well there's two reasons why I'm not contacting them:
- it wouldn't be a pretty solution to the challenge
- it's REALLY difficult to contact AT&T from outside US or if you're not a customer already.

Believe I've tried: I checked their website, sent the mentions over twitter and even considered faking a 'new customer' call... and everything failed.

Facebook Guerrilla

I started a facebook account and a facebook group!!!
