Some Great Tips About What To Do If Your Mobile Phone Is Stolen
Loosing a mobile phone is not a uncommon thing for anybody in this world. You've got to have heard that your friend or any other person forget his or her telephone in a hotel, vehicle, garden, park. And when he or she goes to pick up phone, mobile phone is not there. Now what needs to be done if your mobile phone is stolen.
In many countries like Uk, there is mobile phone database, which can forestall mislaid mobile phones from being used on any mobile network, so these stolen mobile phones are worthless to any person. This system exactly works like a purloined Visa card, if you loose your credit card, you simply make a telephone call to your appropriate bank to deactivate your ATM card. Similar is the case with mobile phones, you call your service provider and give them a specific number to deactivate your stolen mobile phone. This system applies to both prepay and postpaid packages.
Each mobile in this world has a completely unique code called as International mobile equipment identity (IMEI Number). This is a unique serial number of every mobile phone. If you provide this serial number to your network operator, they can deactivate your stolen mobile phone. Nobody can use your mobile phone even if the person who has nicked your mobile, insert new Sim in the mobile. This mobile will be pointless for all networks or service suppliers. All mobile network operators will deactivate or disable the telephone by reference to this unique IMEI number of the mobile phone.
Now question is how it is possible to get this IMEI number? This number can typically be found under the battery of mobile phone (looking something like 087489/99/125486/9). You can get this number from the phone software, by entering following useful code. Simply write down on your mobile phone the following code.* 0 6
A 15 digit code will pop up on screen after pressing send button, or in some phones it comes mechanically just by writing * 0 6. So if you buy a mobile phone, get this code from the battery or write above code on your phone and get IMEI number.
After this, record this 15 digit IMEI number and your phone number on your private note book, place this book at a safe place and that is it. Now suppose if you lost your phone, make a call to your service supplier and give them your phone number and this particular key,i.e IMEI number. They will deactivate your stolen mobile phone. You most likely will not get your telephone back, but at the very least you know that whoever lifted it can’t use/sell it either. If everyone do this, there would be no point in people pinching mobile phones
