I suspect the phone is there. The problem is sending it back, with that lithium battery. Can be a big problem.

I believe China Post has the same restriction as HK Post: no smartphones with lithium batteries inside.

While I'm sure OP is just asking for genuine help here, just a word of warning: Do not transport / ship anything (especially international) for anyone you don't know (and don't trust 200%) - and even then, be careful.

But then I might have watched too much "Boarder patrol Australia"

Make that 300%. This is an anonymous internet forum. Not a series of questions I would want to ask on departure from China or entry to the US.

If the hotel is in possession of the phone, you can ask them to send it back via UPS. I assume it would be pricey, but as mentioned above it will be pretty hard to find some random person who wants to exit China with electronics they know nothing about.

If the OP happened to be one of our established brothers/sisters, I'd be willing to take the risk.

Huawei?

It could be worse. MMS could have it, and turned it over to Huawei for data mining.
