Yeah, I mean, if one were to set a passcode and, instead of losing the phone, forget (or lose) the passcode for some reason, would it make sense that the phone would be bricked? To me, no. May not be worth much, though--I can't speak from experience on this and have never had to restore (and it isn't really something I feel the need to experiment with). Sounds like cardfan is on to something with popping the SIM card out.

To the OP, the only other thing that would prob be a good "peace of mind" kind of thing would be to put up a craigslist ad and state that a phone was found (and include the exact location it was found), ask any people who think it is their phone to respond with the date it was lost and the specifics of the phone...you may come up with nothing but at least at that point you went out of your way to find the owner...

I'm going by personal experience. I, my self don't worry about if the employee is having a bad day, but I do show them with the same respect as I would like to be treated as if I become rude, then that will cause them to have a bad day. they are there providing a service for me and if they were not there, then I wouldn't be getting that service. If you were told to F-off or were being treated really bad, then surely it would stick around for a while. Now whether or not you choose to let it roll off your shoulder or let it stick to you for the next week is up to you, but with rude customer, supervisors breathing down your back and having multiple tasks to do at once, clearly things won't be pleasant. You would need to work in this indrestry to truly know what I mean.
Also we don't know if what the OP said is true. He could have been reading in to him wrong. Retail/customer service is stressful. Trust me and even my self have read in to people wrong.

All we can go on is what the OP tells us, and thus far, he told us that he tried to get assistance and was treated poorly, benefit of the doubt applies here because we arnt here to help the CSR, we are here to help the member of the forum since he submitted a legitimate question and situation to the community.
As far as the retail world...i worked retail, when i was 16 or so, worked at a clothes store, and it was the worst job because you ARE basically a slave to the customer, if you want to be successful at the job and keep money flowing into the store you work at...your situations that you brought up are so off the wall and have nothing to do with what we are talking about in here, none of the things you mentioned happened from what we were told, so they are not applicable in finding or discussing a resolution in this thread...i mean if he went in with a gun and shot every person but the CSR he was talking to, im sure he'd get a negative response as well...but that isnt the case, therefore it is a moot point to bring up.

I'm not going to argue with you. We already went off topic. If you want we can take this via PM. End of discussion.

What are you talking about man? Are you on sedatives or something? The only thing i pointed out was that the customer service person is required to help a person without treating them poorly, as that is their job...you went off on some tangent about treating customer service reps right and honestly, i had no idea what you were getting at since nobody in here mentioned abusive treatment of the AT&T guy, then again, many of your posts are off the wall and odd.
Not sure what you're getting at in this thread with the tough guy big guy stuff...but if you're done discussing it, just stop! Not that hard to do...
