I found an iPhone 4 last month in the deep recesses of a rental car. I powered it up and found that it belonged to someone in Australia. I was able to open their email and determine the owner's email address. I emailed him to say I had the phone. From the dates of the emails on the phone it hadn't been used in several months. I got no response to my email. The phone itself is worthless as the screen is damaged and is about 1/4 unreadable. But when powered on some personal information can be accessed.
NOW to my question: Throw it in the trash OR smash it and throw it in the trash OR take it to an Apple Store OR ???
I look forward to your suggestions, especially the useless ones.
I hope you found it by looking and not just sticking your hand down into the deep recesses of a rental car. You're more likely to find a used needle tucked between the cushions of a rental car than an iPhone!

I was a cop in a metropolitan area. Our impound lot had the rental companies on speed dial.
We would regularly deal with/arrest drug users/dealers driving rental cars.
....and you found more used syringes than phones/french fries/lighters/whatever in the cushions of rental car seats?
I've found lots of crap in rental cars, but never a syringe. I wonder what the difference is.
Sorry, I didn't mean to cause any grief and this is absolutely not worth arguing about. I retract my previous statement about what you are more likely to find stuffed in the seats of a rental car. I will just leave it at this... Be careful reaching into the deep recess of a rental car. It is not unheard of to find a crack pipe or syringe hidden down there.
