Passenger Knocks on My Door - Find My iPhone Locator

Yes but people have pictures of their kids, pets, work emails, voicemails, etc linked to their phones that you have to realize you are throwing out as well. Some of that isn't replaceable with insurance. Throwing it away is a @@@@@@ move and speaks a lot about how much you care about anyone but yourself. If it happened to you you'd be pissed.
Yes but all that is easily accessible on either Google when you sign back into a new phone or Iphone cloud.

When I get a new phone it asks me for my Google login and once that's set all my stuff magically appears on my new phone.

I really don't mind returning them but I also can appreciate those who toss them. I am annoyed much more by people making a mess in my car, slamming doors, or somebody running to my car at 4 minutes and 20 seconds...

Nope. This is wrong.
This does NOT work on iPhone 10.
You obviously haven’t tried.

There is a way, but it’s not holding down power button like on other iPhones.
It’s holding down power and the up volume button. At least that reveals the power off screen.

I have a iPhone X’s max, ok so up volume and side off button turns my phone off,

I found a lost phone in my car around 3AM, but wasn't sure who's it was as I didn't get any missing items notifications from both platforms. Drove the grave yard shift and came home around 8AM. I was hanging out with a fellow ant at my apartment sharing stories, and all of a sudden I hear a knock on my door.

"Hey, do you know who's car (uber) that is? I know that I left my phone in the uber and need to know which unit that car belongs to".

We were like WTF as I live in a gated apartment complex, and the couple drove to my house based on their phone locator. I mean kinda messed up as they didn't contact uber to go through the proper channels, but part of me was kinda like well saves me the headache as they showed up at my front door and I returned their phone.

Almost forgot to request the $15 return fee, but writing this post reminded me and submitted the fee request.

Kinda f'd up what they did, but part of me is relieved as this was the easiest $15 I ever made. LOL
Police actually advise those searching for their iphones
NOT to do what u described.
Law Enforcement prefers civilians allow them to approach the subject.
U never know what Low life may be in-wait

But, as u experienced, many still risk and conduct their own search

Seriously, all that “stuff” on their phones should be backed up in the Cloud.
It’s automatic with my iPad & iPhone .

Lose the phone, u still have everything high in the sky

Is your phone locked when doing this?
Yes, tried both, having the annoying Face ID, you have to turn phone away from you so it couldn’t recognise and unlock itself,

Correct.
The point was someone only used to turning off a phone with one button won’t figure that out.
I get that, I’m use to pressing all buttons in any random order, to figure it out, but can see how someone wouldn’t figure it,

It’s like how the top volume button is also used to take photos, you can tell the ones who don’t know this, and struggle trying to press the onscreen button,

If you are smart, you won't back up lots of things to the cloud. Just because you people do doesn't mean everyone else does.. iCloud is not entirely safe, and a vast majority of phone users don't backup their files. Especially Android users. Anyone who throws a phone in the trash simply because it was left in your car is a heartless, senseless, uncompassionate @@@@@@@@. Gotta reevaluate your life at that point.. no respect for anyone but yourselves. Change that and good things may even start to come your way.

I don't care if a phone is covered by insurance or not. And I don't care if there are irreplaceable photos on the phone or not.

Intentionally destroying someone else's phone is just wrong.

Ever hear of the Golden Rule?

I have heard of the golden rule.
The beauty of that rule is that these millennials would never go out of their way to return my phone.
So I apply the golden rule.

Lol the DoD has nothing to do with iCloud. At the end of the day, you are just putting all of your passwords and private documents onto someone else's private server, and trusting when they tell you that they will keep it safe. Reality sucks. A file cabinet in my house is literally safer than putting any single file on to the cloud.

Found a phone this morning. Luckily it was dead.
Took a nice dive into the Willamette River off the Hawthorne bridge.

Lol the iCloud isn't AWS... plus, that is a private contract and has nothing to do with files that you store to AWS. At the most, files you store to iCloud may eventually be encrypted with DoD level encryption, but there is always a period of time during file transmission where that file is not encrypted. Thus the risk. And I have worked for 8 years for a company that literally provides Apple with their in-house iCloud storage arrays. They have a storage cluster in Secaucus, New Jersey that houses much of their iCloud data. Believe me, that building is not the most secure, been there many times for other customers and much of the iCloud hardware is literally just sitting in a cage you can climb over. Credentials don't mean shit without real world experience.

Apparently you don't remember what it says.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

NOT
Do unto others as you think they would do to you.
