On July 3rd, while metal detecting on Misquamicut Beach, I discovered an iPhone 7 buried in the sand. Once the iPhone was charged, it gave a phone number to call if the phone was found. Its owner had used a special application, which allowed him to put a message on his iPhone when it was lost. I called the number and connected with Anthony, the owner, who was very glad to hear from me. Anthony had lost the phone two days earlier. After searching the beach, he didn’t expect to get it back. He was in Boston when I called, and it was late evening, but he was happy to drive to Rhode Island to claim his phone.
