[Found] iPhone 5 SE on Mt Rogoona

Hi all,

I found an iPhone 5 SE on a cairned section of the route up Mt Rogoona yesterday. I charged it up and it turns on but is passcode protected. The background is a picture of Federation Peak.
If this is yours, or you know who it might belong to then get in touch!

Cheers,

Dee

You should be able to press-and-hold the reset button and volume button (or on the 5, maybe it's the reset button and the home button) for a few seconds to bring up the Emergency call and Medical ID screen (also the power off screen).

IF the owner has it configured, you will be able to use the "Medical ID" slider button on this screen to see that name and age of the owner AND to get phone numbers for their emergency contacts people.
