iPod lost and found - the benefits of registration

iLounger “vgirla” found an iPod on a flight and decided to use the forums to try and locate the owner. After posting her story and following advice from various members, she contacted Apple and passed them the serial number.

One day later, another iLounge user, “smacryan” claimed ownership of the iPod, and explained that a representative from Apple had called.

“I lost my iPod last Wednesday and I have been trying to trace my steps to figure out where I left it. I called the airline lost & found, the arrival and destination airports, and my hotel. [...] I would not have found it without Apple contacting me today. I did not even think to check any iPod or lost and found sites. I am glad I registered my iPod!!”

The moral of this story: register your iPod with Apple, and if you lose it, check the iLounge forums. This happy ending brought to you by yet another great iLounger - thanks “vgirla.”

I lost my husband’s ipod on a flight October 28, 2008 - from Denver to Houston. If there is anyone out there who cares and might have it, please contact me - or let the airline know so they can contact me. His name is on the back. Thank you!

You can register it at Lost-iPod.com.  We did it when we bought my son’s nano 4g from Target.
