I found a droid charge in the grass so I waited for about 2 weeks and it still was their so I went and picked it up and the screen was locked to where you need a email to unlock the phone, I wanted to know how to unlock the phone so I can see what is on the phone and erase everything a turn it on and use it.
+1, Even if you could erase everything, that phone was most likely reported as lost and the ESN is likely flagged, which means you will not be able to activate it.
Think about how bad you would feel if your $300 plus phone was lost along with all your phone contacts and other information! The right thing to do is to take it to a "factory" Verizon store and turn it in so Verizon can locate the owner who lost it.
Do the right thing. Even though you found it, it's not yours. In today's society to many folks believe: "Finders keepers losers weepers" and that is wrong!
