    If you lose your cellphone in Auckland, there's a good chance it will be returned.

    A global survey of major cities in 32 different countries has found Aucklanders are a more honest bunch than Londoners or Sydneysiders.

    The Reader's Digest had its reporters plant 960 mid-priced cellphones in busy public places from Amsterdam to Zurich and observe from a distance what happened.

    To identify which finders doubled as keepers, calls were placed to the cellphone to see if it was answered.
