Poor Mr. Dobson...it must have been very tough for him to be frequently asked for a lost iPhone at his house

I'd buy a bunch of water damaged iphones and hand them to people looking for their phones, "Sorry, yours didn't make it" LOL

He must be a nice person not to have sued sprint, even though he is in America where people use all excuses to sue others and make money. I bet some lawyers are already talking to him, encouraging him to make some money suing Sprint.

Poor guy, that's bulls**t. Sprint is lucky that he's nice, or else they could face a fine and bad credibility. He's 59 too, the man is just trying to sleep and enjoy what's left of his life. Smh.

From experience most of the people losing their phones in Vegas are either drunk, irresponsible idiots or both. The couple in the article banged on his door aroudn midnight and demanded their phone back without first contacting the authorities. A lot of these encounters sound like confrontation of the ME Generation morons so attached to their little toys. Since police have also been redirected to his home Sprint should be held liable.

Something tells me he's definitely not a sprint customer (or maybe he is if they bought him off lol).
