    could you explain by what you meant when you said you just found the phone? A reset key is usually asked when the phone has been locked due to incorrect pin entries or if it is stolen

    If somebody bothered to setup reset protection, they are probably looking for it.

    If it was me, I would check what brand of sim card is in it, then take it to the nearest location of that company. They could probably contact the owner who would appreciate your honesty.

    Finders keepers and all that, but only the original owner can get the reset key.
