    Every once in a while I have a reader ask me what they should do with a lost or stolen iPhone they've somehow come across. In most cases their biggest concern is finding the original owner, as it should be. Unfortunately that task sometimes proves to be a little tougher than some people imagine, especially if the owner has enabled a passcode lock. However, if the iPhone you have found is fully functional, we've got some tricks that can help you get in contact with the original owner faster than you may think!

    My iPhone is locked and I ask Siri, "Siri, who do you belong to?". My contact comes to the screen.

    I never knew this. I just tried it and it works like a charm. Thank you!

    You can always learn something new, no matter how knowledgeable you think you are or how long you've had a device.

    I live in Ukraine, and if you lost your iPhone here even with a passcode it will not help. It get hacked and find a new owner easily.
