My first suprise was a (big) extra box containing an electric tile cutter which I hadn't ordered. I told Screwfix , they're collecting later and kindly let me have 10 quid for my trouble. But my biggest suprise was yet to come...
I opened the box with the TV bits and bobs to find a shiny 3G mobile phone looking me in the eye. It was over the inner divider bit, not amongst the bought stuff. It looks new and is a currently available model, value over £300, though unboxed with no charger. You would think it probably came from the Screwfix warehouse however there was a hole in the box big enough for it to have got in (somehow) in transit. I told Screwfix, after some deliberation they rang back and suggested that, because they have no way of tracking it, that I deal with it 'at my discretion'.
I looked up instructions on the net but so far haven't been able to get into it to see if it has an owner or even a SIMM card or whatever (it does look new), it might be dead or locked (it only illuminates briefly when you hit the 'photo button). I don't know if anyone like a phone shop would be able to crack it open.
Any ideas what I should do?. At the moment I'm thinking of dropping into my local constabulary for advice. I could just send it back to Screwfix but then maybe I wouldn't get to keep it if there is no traceable owner.
