My Iphone 4s was lost on April 7th, I decided to keep it activated in case someone saw it ringing or what not. I would call the phone at least 10 times a day, and within 3 days of loosing the phone it died so all of my calls were going straight to voicemail. The phone was off for over a week and then it began ringing again, meaning that someone had it and had charged it.
I called Verizon to see if there was anything I could do, my Icloud was turned off so I wasn't able to use the Find my Phone app. They told me it would be put on the Lost/Stolen list? well what does this mean? If someone tries to activate it , the Verizon associate will confiscate it and return it to me? Also, I told the woman with Verizon that I DID NOT want to deactivate my phone and she warned that any charges made would be billed to my account, I said that was fine since I has a passcode lock on my phone. Well after I ended my conversation with Verizon I tried calling my phone only to find that my number doesn't work and if disconnected?
So basically does Verizon disconnect your number when putting your phone on the lost/stolen list? and will I get my phone back if someone tries to activate it?
