If you truly found it, why not try getting it back to it's rightful owner first. As Cell phones do have ESN's and MAC ID's to identify them as uniquely as fingerprints identify us.
If you meant that you like found it in your closet? Then depending on the service provider you'll have to get with them to activate and account for you. Do you know if it's GSM or CDMA, does it take a SIM card?

Simply call your cell provider and give them the serial number of the phone or IMEI number found next to the battery. They will be able to tell you if it can be activated on their network.

Tracfone customer service

you must contact the customer service for the phone and tell them you want to activate the phone that you already have and they will have to send you a new sim card. You will not be able to activate the phone unless you get the sim card from them. Your service time would have expired but if you purchased double airtime minutes for life you will still have that honored. You will have to purchase more airtime in order to have more service days.

It takes hours to get a signal after it is turned on, the battery is full charged and after it gets a signal it is full.

If your phone is unable to find a signal after 15 minutes of
searching, a Power Save feature is automatically activated. If
your phone is active, it periodically rechecks service availability
or you can check it yourself by pressing any key.
Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message displays
on the screen. When a signal is found, your phone returns to
standby mode.But u are saying it takes hours to get the signal.I think it
