I found this link posted on a forum and thought it was interesting. How NOT to steal a SideKick II

Evan's friend lost a $300 T-Mobile cell phone in a New York City cab. The people who found it, instead of doing the right thing and returning it, decided to keep and use it to take pictures of themselves and log onto AOL. Unknowingly to them, those pictures were automatically uploaded to the T-Mobile server, where they were accessed by the owner of the phone.

Now Evan has posted their pictures online to put pressure on them to return the phone. The site has been up for less than a week and is receiving half a million hits a day. Evan is getting thousands of emails daily, radio station interview requests, and has been featured on MSNBC and NY Times.
