Mystery mobile phone found in bag of crisps


Last week we had “phone found in fish” and this week it’s “phone found in chips”, if you’ll excuse the slight Americanization. A lady in Wisconsin, one Emma Schweiger, found a Nokia 6810 in her bag of Clancy’s Ripple Potato Chips.

The phone wouldn’t turn on (probably out of battery) but it had a T-Mobile SIM card inside. There was also a “discoloured circle” of some sort on the back. Yuck. She didn’t finish the packet of crisps, but did get a free packet in replacement. She politely declined.

No word if the handset’s owner has been traced yet. I imagine they might be quite happy to see it again, but not as happy as the owner of the codded mobile.

Have you ever found a mobile phone in an odd place? No, not that place. Leave us a comment below, and we’ll see if we can turn two news stories into a TECH TREND.
