The ineptitude of her neighbours should stagger my belief but unfortunately it doesn't.
This is just what I would expect from my neighbours, both as moron victims and as half wit rescue parties.

Incidentally the phone is worth around 500.

Contract phones are not free, there is a binding contract attached which is designed to more than recover the cost of the phone, along with usage charges.

Of course they are not free nothing is, but she wouldn't have to fork out 500 cash.

If it is on contract, she will now need a very similar piece of equipment in order to take advantage of the specific benefits of the 12 to 36 month contract she has signed into. A standard, cheap, calls and texts type phone won't do. In addition, there will almost certainly be a charge for a replacement SIM card.
Perhaps accident insurance is included in the contract, or maybe she has taken it out separately.

There is a charge though and you can't use your apps and the internet without suitable equipment.
In fact an iPhone is more or less useless without apps and internet access. I suppose it might make phone calls.

In a contract there is probably a clause about the phone still belonging to the provider until the contract expires its minimum term.
Not a good thing if said phone is down a drain.

Exactly but you could say that about anything of value.
