Lost My Phone….then something really weird happened advice?

Postby looptyloop » Tue Sep 04, 2012 10:27 am

Hi everyone!
This year was my first burn…..and I didnt make the smartest decision ever by bringing my phone out on the playa to take pictures of the man burning. I left it where i had been sitting in all the crazyness and realized it later.

I checked lost and found twice before i left on monday morning. No Luck .

then at 7:30 or so on monday morning my fiance realizes that he had a voicemail from some unknown washington number. It said they had found my phone and would like to return it to me! I was ecstatic and called back immediately. First try no answer so i left a voicemail. They called back but we missed it bc his phone was on silent. Tried again. didnt pick up. then again. then texted still no luck. i just dont know what to do anymore.

The guy sounded young and nice and his number is 2**-***-***8 does anyone know who this is? are you his friend? could you let him know id really like my phone back before my birthday on the 8th… :-(

What should i do?

If he's like a lot of burners who drove home to Washington, he's probably been sleeping all day and night. It might take a couple of days to sort it all out. Best of luck.

Rewards for stolen items in california are often responded to from washington numbers.

No idea why.

Don't know if there is a connection.

First, keep calling for a few days, or
try that number in one of the internet reverse phone lookup sites. Might get a name and addy you could write to. a few
of these sites are free. Most are crappy pay sites. Perhaps paying $20 might be worth it if you get a good contact.
