27 year old Nadav Nirenberg of Brooklyn pulled off a ruse designed to get back his lost Apple iPhone 4 in a story that could only take place in New York City; Nirenberg had left his iPhone 4 in the back of a cab and an OKCupid email revealed that the guy who had found his hand set was using it to hit on women which gave the musician an idea on how to get it back...

Awesome! Now he can continue to be 3 years behind.
Plus...the money he doesn't spend on a current handset can now be used for a decent haircut and some pimple cream.

Hey may need to grow up, but you need to grow some balls, it's not necessary to be politically correct all the time and like it or not everything he said is true

Right? Not much more annoying than a message board white knight.

Streetlight Manifesto is the best punk ska band around and it was a clever way to get his phone back. I don't care what phone he has this man is awesome!

i would never think that way to actually try and get my phone back

Ha! Good job to you sir. Should have hit him with the hammer, just to knock some sense into the fool. Maybe he would have think twice before trying to take something that does not belong to him.

But the phone was not stolen, it was lost, and who here would not take a perfectly decent iphone just laying there? Dont be childish...

You can certainly find the owner of a phone simply by looking through the phone a little..It was definitely stolen.

Is there a law that states this or are you making stuff up?

Seriously? You need a law to force you to be a decent human being?

I always like to read good articles about people getting their phones back.

Hmmm, lets see, he lost it, and never even tried asking for it to be returned. If i had found it and was asked politely i would have given it back. If on the other hand i was asked with a hammer i would have smashed it into the floor. Simple as that.

Trombonist in a punk rock band? Is there something i'm missing about punk rock that has a trumbon-ic sound?
15. Reluctant_Human posted on 04 Jan 2013, 09:16 0 0
Punk Ska. Listen to "Everything Goes Numb" and you'll instantly understand.

Alright...anything for a new type of music. Which band?
18. Reluctant_Human posted on 04 Jan 2013, 10:04 0 0
The one this musician belongs to Streetlight Manifesto. Goldfinger or Reel Big Fish are also other good bands in this genre.

So he got back his old phone and now the guy who has it also knows where he lives and has set foot in his place. Wonder what he'll do when that MB on his table or instruments go missing.

That was a clearly brilliant but albeit foolhardy thing to do, what if the guy who found the phone was some big brute who you gave your address, what if he was a well trained war vet with issues? You people are crazy, thank the lucky stars that nothing went awry and the guy was some wimp and not something else that would have made this story an obituary. Idiots in here think doing things like this is good or heroic, morons with the amount of crazies lurking the streets this was in no way a safe thing to do without the professionals.

smart guy! This is way more useful than the "find my phone" app.

What a total bag of d*cks! He could've at least asked the guy for his phone back before brandishing a freaking HAMMER and threatening the guy! If I was the one whio found his phone I would press charges, there is no excuse for his barbaric actions. It's not like the guy stole it, it was found property

hammer wasnt the best idea but the guy who found the phone wasnt exactly a good Samaritan. If you find something of value that isn't yours you have to turn it in to the police. And being a creeper on OKC isn't exactly helping his case either.
29. opensourceftw (banned) posted on 04 Jan 2013, 17:27 0 0
I'll agree with that, but the guy didn't even try and say like "hey dude, I know you have my phone could you do the right thing and give it back? I'll even kick you a reward. Otherwise I'd hate to get the police involved." Instead of threatening the guy with a hammer.
In the "theif"s defense how many of us would turn a found phone in to the cops? I wouldn't, but I would try and contact anyone in the contact list such as "Mom", "dad", "work" etc. After that, sorry, it's mine.
I also think most people would just assume they will never see that lost phone again, so it's really not even worth looking.

I don't see how this is smart at all. Now the thief knows where he lives.

I don't think it's fair to call someone who found property a thief. I do think he should've just reset it back to factory settings, using the owners pic was pretty odd and creepy.
