    I personally have never asked for any reward on my dozen or so returns but if offered I would gladly accept as I know they are thankful to get their items back.

    Yeah, i had an iPhone 6 plus a couple of years ago, not in a waterproof case, accidentally walked into the beach water with it in my pocket. After about 3 minutes, i remembered, and i knew i was in trouble. There was nothing that could be done, that thing swelled up like the incredible hulk, busted open from the inside after a day. Now i have an iPhone X (waterproof), and i keep it in a waterproof pouch, when i'm detecting in the water, and I have no worries. But i still have bad memories.

    Good job Todd, tks for the TID# and info. But now I am wondering if we pop the coil over a cellphone that is still ACTIVE/Turned ON in the water, what kindof crazy noise will we hear on the headphones?! Anybody want to test that out for us at a local beach? Anyone? No takers? haha... well, i guess i can do that test on land.

    I have learned a good method for recovering them in the water. I started by digging behind the phone and let the sand slowly fill in and scoop out some more then I started to fan the sand with my foot. When I finally saw the edge of it I scooped under it and there it was in my scoop. Kind of a slow process but it worked.

    My wife found an iPhone 6s last month, dug it out of the waters edge, I couldn't trace the owner so we sold it on eBay for parts only, it made a whopping $1.25 , but cost me $4 to sell it, so the next one I find I'm going to smash it to pieces with the scoop, or throw it back in deeper.

    Wiganer... Did you consider that your find was actually GOLD, SILVER, COPPER and PLATINUM! Whoa!!

    There are 0.034 grams of gold in each cell phone, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. That's the equivalent of 0.001 troy ounces, worth about $1.82 at today's prices. There are also 16 grams of copper, worth about 12 cents, 0.35 grams of silver, worth 36 cents, and 0.00034 grams of platinum, valued at 2 cents.

    Ive returned 9 rings...never asked for a reward but was given one 8 of the 9 times...the only time I didn't get one was by a guy who said if I found his ring "Ill give you a BIG reward"...the other 8 didn't say anything about a reward but still gave me one.
