The only way a lost phone can be legally yours is if you turned it into the police the day you found it. After a year of being unclaimed, you can then pick it up as the new owner. What you did was to simply hang onto a phone that does not, and did not belong to you.


Even if you had turned it into the police and legally picked it up as yours after the hold time, Apple would still be highly unlikely to clear it for your use.


Regardless of all that, the entire purpose of Activation Lock is to keep unauthorized users from using a lost or stolen phone. It's only use to you is as a thin, but somewhat servicable brick. Or maybe you could use it to level a really wobbly table.
