I found this Sony Ericsson when I was on holiday. It was at a beach and had no sim card, so I didnt no what to do with it?

It was low on battery but it said it was locked when I turned it on. I have a really old nokia 2100 and i was hoping I could up-grade to the phone I found.

It has since run out of battery and I don't no how to unlock it?

Any advice?

See if Vodafone can help.
You never know. It could have fallen out of someone's pocket.
Just my five (no, ten ;) ) cents worth.

the keyguard might be on try holding back then press yes does it ask for a code. anyways the best thing to do is hand it in to the police you will feel better for it

hand it in.  if it's phone locked, you could theoretically take it to a phone repairer to have it unlocked, but that's pretty unethical.

Take it into the police, that's about all you can do... Locked phones are useless and it's probably network locked too, I bet it's pinched and discarded when it was found to be "locked"

hand it to police.
they can track you down even u unlock the phone.

imaging this: explaining to the police that  seriourly, you found the phone (but didn't report/hand it in) AND/OR you are not a stolen goods buyer.... either way looks bad and unethical.
