Best practices for returning a Boost Mobile ZTE Android phone to it's rightful owner? The phone is fully charged, but I can't seem to turn it "on" or access the contents. The data chip is in there (I checked) I'm not sure if it is missing a sim chip, and inspection seems to indicate this phone doesn't use that technology. Help?

The phone was found on top of my friend's parked car a few days ago, but it did not turn on. I don't have an android phone, but my neighbor has several models of phone and I figured she had a charger that would work. She did. Phone now indicates it is charged, but does not turn "on."
- It's a ZTE N880
- I want to access the device's mobile number + contacts. I'm looking for someone listed as, "Mom," "Home," or "Work" - a reliable number I can call to get this back to the rightful owner.
- I'm having trouble finding a user manual on Google. A lot of broken or unrelated links!
I thought about dropping it off at the police station, or visiting the Boost store down the road, but I'm wary either option will put the effort in to get this back to the owner. I'd love it if anyone knows how to turn this damn thing back on (assuming it isn't totally broken.)
