So I had an ex-kinda-girlfriend we never dated just liked eachother. She gave me an old android phone like 5 months ago, now that shes all mad at me she wants it back. And she wants to take me to court over it if I dont give it back to her she says. She says im committing theft if I dont return it. Is this true? Theres no written agreements or anything, she claims we had a verbal agreement that I had to give it back whenever she wants. And now she wants it back. I told her ill give it back in some days once I find a new phone, shes being real mean and edgy on this. Can I keep the phone, I mean she did give it to me, theres no agreements. Its service is under my moms name with at&t. Nothing of hers. She is with at&t as well but not same service or whatever you know? My SIM card is in the ph
Shes also threatening me with sexual harassment ? We hungout a total of like 5 times. All I ever did was text her nice and sweet things, and just get worried when she wouldnt text back. The only thing I can think of that could be considered that is i made a joke, and word for word in text "Dam girl I wanna get in your pants! What size are they?"
I would simply give the phone back ASAP. The last thing that you need is a theft charge, let alone conviction, on your record.

It's not theft. That said, give it back to avoid the headache!!
