My iPhone was recently lost, I put it in lost mode via icloud and I know it was found by someone because I got the email from icloud saying it's been found as well as a last known location...but it has since not come online anymore.
I have a new iPhone now which I want to setup like the old one but I'm still hoping the person who has the old iPhone returns it after realizing it's a paperweight to them without my apple ID(i had text saying reward available if returned).
My questions are:
-What would happen if I setup my new iPhone with the same Apple ID as the old one? Would that remove the old one in lost mode?
-What if I name the new iPhone with the same name as the old iPhone?
-I want my old phone number...what happens if I deactivate the old Sim in the lost iPhone, and have my carrier create a new sim for me so I can use in my new iphone? Would that mess up the lost mode?
I basically want to setup my new iphone like my old one but I don't want my old iphone to be taken out of lost mode
